Hand-Painted Movie Based on Van Gogh Greenlighted


Hand-Painted Movie Based on Van Gogh Greenlighted

A new hand-painted animated film based on the death of famous Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh has just been greenlighted by UK sales and finance outfit Bankside Films. According to a report by the Hollywood Reporter, Dorota Kobiela, who is a classically trained painter and animator, will be directing the project. The film will focus mostly on the events leading up to the controversial death of Van Goh, who shot himself in a field outside Paris in July of 1890.

The film is touted as the first ever hand-painted movie, with every single frame being an oil painting on canvas using Van Gogh’s impressionist style, with the animators using a brand new animation technique in order to make the paintings come to life for the movie screen. Around 30 painters will be laboring over 56,800 frames in order to complete the film within the two year production period, with the launch date scheduled for 2015 – in time for the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death.

The film will be titled Loving Vincent, and will be co-produced by Breakthru Films and Trademark films, and will be directed by Hugh Welchman. Sean Bobbitt and David Parfitt are also attached as co-producers.
