'Loving Vincent' Trailer, The First Fully Painted Feature Film

A documentary on the life and mysterious death of Vincent van Gogh called 'Loving Vincent' will be the first ever film made entirely of animated paintings, with every shot painted with oil paints on canvas, just as Vincent himself painted.

The film, directed by Polish painter Dorota Kobiela and filmmaker Hugh Welchman, is told entirely through the images and characters van Gogh brought to life -- the starry nights, the snow-covered fields, the gloomy absinthe drinkers, the hardworking postmen.

The plot was woven together from 800 letters written by the artist himself, and features dramatic reconstructions of the events leading to his death.

The trailer for this monumental undertaking is below:
