Break-Thru Films has released a trailer for the upcoming full-length film Loving Vincent, an animated film which brings the work of Vincent van Gogh to life. Launched by director Dorota Kobiela and Oscar-winning producer Hugh Welchman on Kickstarter, Loving Vincent features the work of over 100 trained artists who, as a collective, were responsible for creating more than 56,000 hand-drawn paintings in total and 12 hand-made oil paintings per second in the style of the late Impressionist.
The plot revolves around the artist’s life, with 800 letters written by van Gogh himself comprising much of the storyline. These letters detailed his closest personal connections and serve as an investigation into his death. Additionally, over 120 of van Gogh’s most famous paintings were re-created for the movie.
