The World's First Fully Painted Movie is Opening in Cinemas This Month
Every single frame is an oil painting!
(SPOT.ph) We first heard of Loving Vincent in 2016; back then, they were still recruiting applicants to help meticulously paint every single frame in Vincent Van Gogh's style. It turns out that the film was made over a staggering seven years!
Today, the movie has hit international cinemas and is headed to the Philippines as the opening film of QCinema International Film Festival. It will be screened on October 23 at 9 p.m. in UP Town Center and October 24 at 3:30 p.m. in Gateway Mall.
The film is set a year after Van Gogh takes his life. When a postman stumbles upon one of the artist's letters, he takes it upon himself to investigate the mystery surrounding his death. Of course, its story is bolstered by its incredible visuals of over 65,000 oil paintings created by 125 painters.
If you're interested in seeing how the artists painted each shot, the film's official website even details the rigorous process. Don't worry if you miss out on QCinema, either: Loving Vincent's official release date in the Philippines is November 1.
