Well, You Know How Animation Works…

…but you probably haven’t seen it like this.

Loving Vincent, a film about the artist Vincent Van Gogh, is one of the contenders for Best Animated Feature at this year’s Oscars, and if there’s any justice in the world, it will get the win.

In short: imagine an entire animated movie, but instead of the typical way of drawing the images, literally EVERY frame is a painting. It needed the work of 125 artists making over 65,000 separate images to pull the story together.

Take a look at the trailer here.
