Loving Vincent — Full-length Oil Painting Animated Movie

More than 100 painters worked together to create the 12 oil paintings per-second animation for this full-length movie on the last days of Vincent Van Gogh directed by Poland-based Dorota Kobiela.

“Loving Vincent is an investigation delving into the life and controversial death of Vincent Van Gogh, one of the world’s most beloved painters, as told through his paintings and by the characters that inhabit them. The intrigue unfolds through interviews with the characters closest to Vincent and through dramatic reconstructions of the events leading up to his death.”

Guest Post - Devereau Chumrau - Silent: Animation from Dolby and Moonbot Studios

This guest post is from actor Devereau Chumrau.

Devereau may be a native of Los Angeles, but it is also the time she spent in Ghana, in Europe and the UK, and largely as a student of the Asolo Conservatory in Florida, that has shaped her vision as an actor and as an artist. She has, all along the way, worked to develop her interest and experience in acting for the stage and for the screen.

Catch her show LOVECRAFT: Nightmare Suite closing March 2 at the Visceral Company in Hollywood.
