Back in 2014, Oscar-winning studio Breakthru Films began work on the world’s first fully painted feature-length film – and with this beautiful new trailer, they offer a first look at what you can expect from the landmark project.

Loving Vincent not only brings the works of Vincent Van Gogh to life, it also tells the story of the artist’s life and death through fictional interviews with the characters in his paintings.

The film will use a new oil painting for each shot, with movement added from one frame to the next by a painter’s brush. So far, around 100 artists have taken part in the project, with more than 56,000 paintings needed to fill the film’s running time.

Loving Vincent is being directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman and stars Aidan Turner, Saoirse Ronan and Helen McCrory.
