    The shooting was the first stage in the process of realising the film, which was made using the painterly animation technique.

    The technique we have chosen is difficult and time-consuming, but thanks to ‘Two Vincent’ we know that transferring oil painting to the big screen gives a magical effect,”

    said Piotr Dominiak, artistic director of BreakThru Films studio.

    To create the film, the studio used the original idea of PAWS (Painting Animation Work Stations), which makes it possible to unify animation and systematise the work of painters.

    Loving Vincent

    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.
