Artists at work

They are using oil paint to create “Loving Vincent”, the world’s first feature length painted animation, with every shot painted with oil paints on canvas, just as Van Gogh himself painted.

Quite a project. Needing 12 paintings a second, the film employed about 100 painters, based in Poland.

See some of the animation and watch the trailer here.

Or, watch William Kentridge doing an animation the sensible way - with charcoal - and talking about the process here.
