Trailer For Feature-Length Movie About Van Gogh Animated With 12 Oil Paintings A Second

March 1, 2016


This is the worthwhile trailer for Loving Vincent, a feature-length movie about the life and death of Vincent Van Gogh, animated with 12 oil paintings on canvas a second. That is impressive. Over 100 artists have lent their oil painting talents to the movie, myself not included. I dunno, something about not painting a giant penis into every frame. VAN GOGH WOULD HAVE WANTED IT THIS WAY.

Keep going for a couple shots of the artists at work and the trailer.




  • Saturns Eye

    He will never know this was ever done for him. Sad really.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Was that his ear in his hand at 0:21? If not, I'm not interested.

  • Deksam

    Each frame / painting will be worth a fortune after the movie is released and they will sell for more collectively then the movie makes by far. Great Idea!

  • Matthew Anderson

    Thousands (tens-of-, who knows? Actual number depends on the length of the film, and how many actual FULL paintings were made) of paintings pumped out of a production line by hundreds of nobody artists?... Yeah they'll make a fortune off 'em at bulk auctions for corporate offices...

  • timeiskey

    photoshop has a movie digital rotoscoping feature for years yo.

  • Deksam

    Most production cells of any cartoon, sell for 500.oo minimum and no one cares who actually made those.

  • Matthew Anderson


  • Doubtful. But it does appear many, if not all, of the paintings were comtinuously reworked to create the animation, so there's probably far fewer than one might think.

  • timeiskey

    also it looks digitally rotoscoped m8

  • Gene Kaufman

    This will be really cool for people who like impressionist oil paintings.
    And honestly there's nothing wrong with it.
    But pretty much all the wall art I see in my area that isn't post modern non objective madness is just mediocre impressionist crap, which just kind of turned me off to that sector of the painting world. One particular incident that annoyed me was when our local coffee shop had an art show and they were like "Show your individualism in your interpretations.. etc etc" and pretty much everybody ended up doing -as I said- non objective madness or really mediocre impressionist paintings. I myself, am not a painter, but even I know that quite frankly there are SO many other ways to paint.
    Bob Ross, Q.E.D.

    So yeah, awesome idea and probably really good execution but I am not the person fit to judge this as I already can't stand impressionist art anymore.

  • Actually, Bob Ross (who is one of my idols) owes alot of his style to the impressionists, and it shows as he describes his method. But there's folks with skill and folks just turning out junk in every genre of Art.

  • Gene Kaufman

    It's true Bob Ross owes some of his style to impressionists, but it's not straight impressionist. Either way I was just saying that I'm just really tired of impressionism because it's so overdone in MY area. I don't know if it's something that is a thing everywhere else, but in my area it just gets really tiring.

  • We don't seem to have that here, but then our Art scene isn't that great anyway. Gotta travel a bit for good shows, unfortumately... I feel what ye mean that genres can get oversaturated, but I always just try to take everyone's work individually. There's too many folks out there to worry about style anymore.

  • Gene Kaufman

    Maybe I come off as a bit of an art snob with that post, but I just really like to look at paintings and I just see WAY to much impressionism in my area.

  • timeiskey

    drop the art snob persona, even if you arent actually like that it immediatly makes people reject what you say.

    you could have just said "im really burned out on impressionism."
