BreakThru Films's Hugh Welchman won an Academy Award for his stop-motion short film “Peter and the Wolf” and director/writer Dorota Kobiela created the first "painting animation" in 3D. But their latest project, due for a 2015 release, is even more inspired: unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding Vincent Van Gogh's death in a feature-length film composed entirely of animated interpretations of his oil paintings and illustrated letters. Welchman and Kobiela got the project going on Kickstarter in 2013 and exceeded their original goal earlier this year. Some 40+ painters, trained in Van Gogh's techniques, are now hard at work creating the painted animations frame by frame, with no CG tweening or compositing in sight.
