This Sunday, October 16, 2011, the CBS TV newsmagazine 60 Minutes is doing a feature on Vincent van Gogh, focusing on a new biography, Van Gogh: The Life by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, that suggests Van Gogh may not have taken his own life as has been commonly assumed.
Immediately after the television show, there is an online follow-up feature called 60 Minutes Overtime that carries on with the subject of Van Gogh, in which host Morley Safer discusses the artist and his work, and reads excerpts from his letters.
For that segment, the producers have worked out sequences in which Safer will be speaking from “within” Van Gogh paintings, courtesy of some bluescreen & CGI sleight of hand.
There is an article on the 60 Minutes Overtime site, that includes a video preview and a discussion of how the projections were done, as well as a story and video preview for the TV show on the main 60 Minutes site.
I assume the 60 Minutes Overtime segment will be available from the font of the site just after the TV show ends.
[Addendum: try this link for the web based show. It turns out to be only about 5 minutes long.
