Anaglyph version. The original movie is projected with Lcd active glasses.

Travelling
Some sequence in the film are conceived as a long 3D travelling, mixing the places and the paintings.

The fact the movie is in 3D, demanded an arduous previous work to chain the different locations, adjusting precisely the parameters of the stereo cameras.

In this sequence, the character is seen through different viewpoints, moving around the famous painting of Auvers church.

DVD Version
A DVD version of the movies was released. It included a 3D (with anaglyph glasses) and a normal version of the movie. The bilingual DVD offers extensive informations about the characters, paintings and situations of Van Gogh's life, as well as the impressionist movement.
It's an interesting tool completing the sequences represented in the movie.
