5 Top Movies for Mobile
Our way of viewing films has changed ever since smartphones emerged. We are no longer limited to watching through television, theater, and other large media devices. Smartphone technology has revolutionized media accessibility and given us freedom and mobility to consume media.
For instance, we can simply watch our favorite film while commuting to work, traveling around the country, or during lunch breaks. This gives us an escape from the boredom and drudgery of the daily grind.
Meanwhile, here is a list of visually stunning movies to enjoy on your mobile phone:
Loving Vincent is a 2017 experimental animated film about the life and death of Dutch post-Impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh. It’s the world’s first fully painted film that required over 100 classically-trained oil painters to work with oils on canvases. They used van Gogh’s style as they painted on each of the 65,000 frames used in the film.
The actors had to first film the entire movie, and the artists had to craft the animated paintings over the images after the filming ended. This added a layer of creativity because it allowed the viewers to still recognize the actors’ portrayal and appeal through painted scenes.
The result is a gem. Its one-of-a-kind visual mirage of vivid whirls and colors, enriched by the artists’ renditions of van Gogh’s masterpieces. Among his works featured are the celebrated “The Starry Night” and “Sunflowers”.
Loving Vincent stars Polish theatre actor Robert Gulaczyk on his first big feature, Douglas Booth, Jerome Flynn, and Saoirse Ronan. The film garnered many accolades and was nominated for the Best Animated Feature at the 2018 Academy Awards. The movie trailer may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGzKnyhYDQI.
