While destinations and travel buddies matter, your choice in lodging can undeniably make or break any vacation. Just think about how much more fun you had in Mexico when the resort accidentally upgraded you to an executive suite, or how terrible of a time you had staying in that hostel without functional bathrooms.

“Loving Vincent”: An Animated Film About The Life Of Vincent Van Gogh
The lopped off ear. The starry, starry night. While Vincent Van Gogh is often revered as the founder of modern art, little beyond the superficial is known about the post-impressionist master. Like, for instance, that Van Gogh only picked up the paintbrush eight years before his death, following a series of failed professional endeavors that even included preaching. Desirous of sharing Van Gogh’s story to a world moved by his movement-defined paintings, Academy Award-winning production company BreakThru Films has sifted through 800 of Van Gogh’s own letters and paintings, and hired a team of 70 painters to create oil canvases to bring his story to life in a way he would have preferred. Said Van Gogh in one letter, “The truth is, we cannot speak other than by our paintings”. When completed, “Loving Vincent” will be the first feature length film made solely through hand-painted canvases. Read more about this inspired project at This Is Colossal.
