News About "Loving Vincent"
This animation is based on the life of painter Vincent van Gogh. Thanks to his prolific letter writing, historians have some great insights into the life of the troubled artist. Despite this, there are still varying theories about his death.
The animation Loving Vincent has garnered a lot of attention because of the film's creative mixing of oil paintings with live action.
First, a Painting Design team was assembled and these artists spend one-year recreating the unique style of van Gogh's masterpieces, and turning them into fluid backgrounds with computer animated elements (birds, clouds, smoke, etc.). Next, real actors performed their scenes against green screens, so they could be superimposed over the painted backgrounds. Some of the action was also shot on sets that looked like van Gogh's paintings. Then the live-action material was combined with computer animation and design team's paintings. This created the reference material needed for the painting animators.
These painters transformed the reference materials into animation frames, carefully mimicking van Gogh's brush strokes. Beginning with the first frame, a 6k resolution digital still was taken, and then movement added. At the completion of each frame, a photo would be taken of the canvas, and then the artist would paint over it to create the next frame... take a photo... paint over it... take a photo.. and so on. Over 65,000 frames were created for the film. By the end of each sequence, the resulting painting is the image seen in last shot. There are 898 shots in the film.
You can learn more about they process at the official website of Loving Vincent.
From the Studio:
On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story.
