An Indian woman's brush is blurring the lines between painting and filmmaking in the world's first feature-length painted animation on Van Gogh, 'Loving Vincent'.
Every shot is being painted in ateliers at Gdansk, Poland, where Oscar-winning British producer Hugh Welchman is working on his film on the Dutch post-Impressionist master. Bhopal resident Shuchi Muley, 34, is one of 100 "Van Gogh artists" who are painting 62,000 frames in oils, from footages projected atop their desks, to uncover the story of the painter's death.
Shuchi was selected by Welchman's team from among thousands of amateur and professional painters across the world. Every brushstroke conveys a sense of movement and 12 paintings cover just one second of the film on the edit table of Welchman's pathbreaking venture after his 2008 Oscar-winning film, 'Peter & The Wolf'.
