(SPOT.ph) Featuring over 120 masterpieces by Vincent Van Gogh, and with a plot based on hundreds of letters penned by the artist, Loving Vincent chronicles the highlights of the artist’s life as well as the people closest to his heart. But the shocker is the frames in the film are actually composed of oil paintings, all meticulously hand-painted in Van Gogh’s own unique style. All in all, there will be 56,800 frames done by 30 painters in patented work stations. A monumental project that requires the skills and creativity of a number of people, the movie is claimed to be the first fully painted feature film in the world.
