World’s first hand-painted film eyes an Oscar
Vying for an Oscar this year, ‘Loving Vincent’ is the world’s first animated feature film entirely painted by hand. With 65,000 frames to be exact, all paintings are in the distinct style of Dutch Post-Impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh. The film is based on a probe into Van Gogh’s untimely death. Shot with a shoe-string budget of 5.5 million dollars, Loving Vincent was made with the help of 125 artists from all around the world, who gathered in Gdansk, Poland.
