”Loving Vincent” was first shot as a live action film with actors, and then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils. The final effect is an interaction of the performance of the actors playing the artist’s famous portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these characters into the medium of paint. The film stars famous faces to match the paintings they portray.
Already, “Loving Vincent” has garnered a Audience Award in the recently concluded Annecy Animation Festival, and is a shoe-in to the forthcoming Oscar Awards in the Best Animation Feature Category. The movie is showing on the 1st of November, 2017 nationwide and exclusively distributed by Solar Pictures.
