movie facts

Loving Vincent has been held as a wholly unique and creative film in the realm of animation, with each frame of the film being a unique hand-painted oil painting in the style of the film's title subject, Vincent van Gogh. This gives it a true one-of-a-kind look, which is to serve the subject matter of the film - the life and works of the world-renowned painter. One hundred artists spent hundreds of hours painstakingly detailing each and every one of the movie's over 65 thousand frames of animation, ensuring that the film's look was consistent and captured the heart of van Gogh's work. The movie, being highly experimental in concept, was also partially funded through a successful Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign online, further demonstrating the enthusiasm the public had to see the unique idea come to fruition as a motion picture, and a visual work worthy of telling the story of the great painter.
