Lov­ing Vin­cent, a film that took five years and 65,000 frames ren­dered by hand with oil paints for Pol­ish an­i­ma­tor and painter Dorota Ko­biela and the UK’S Hugh Welch­man, will be com­ing to In­dia on Novem­ber 3. Touted as the world’s first fully painted fea­ture film, it tells the story of painter Vin­cent van Gogh through paint­ings that are in his orig­i­nal style. More than 125 pro­fes­sional oil-painters from all over the world cre­ated over 65,000 paint­ings that served as frames for the movie. The film fea­tures 94 of Vin­cent’s paint­ings in forms very close to the orig­i­nal. The movie uses the stop frame an­i­ma­tion tech­nique has Robert Gu­laczyk play­ing Vin­cent van Gogh. The film’s de­but in the coun­try fol­lows the Lov­ing Vin­cent ex­hi­bi­tion that re­cently opened to view­ers at the No­ord­bra­bants Mu­seum, Nether­lands. The ex­hi­bi­tion con­tained 119 oil paint­ings from the film, 10 per cent of the paint­ings re­main­ing af­ter the film­ing process, and shows how the film­mak­ers re-imag­ined the paint­ings of Gogh into the medium of film, us­ing the tech­nique, that he him­self used.
