How do you paint 65,000 pictures like Van Gogh?

Cornish artist Sarah Wimperis was picked out of 5,000 international applicants to work on the film about Vincent Van Gogh's life, and helped create 65,000 Van Gogh-style paintings in a warehouse in Poland.

She worked with about 100 other artists for five months hand-painting each frame to create the animated feature film "Loving Vincent".

The film, which features Poldark stars Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson, has drawn on more than 800 letters penned by the painter.

See the full story on Inside Out South West on BBC One on Monday 31 October at 19:30 BST and on the iPlayer for 30 days thereafter.
