Metamorphosis Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film in South Africa Directed by Liesel Kershoff 2015

“Like a morphing butterfly, the wheat producing region of the Overberg, South Africa changes color from shades of greens, ripening to a patchwork of greens and golds and ultimately dusty hills of browns and yellows when harvest culminates. This morphing takes place every year as spring rolls into summer.

The yellowing hills heralds the start of the annual wheat harvest when combines, tractors and big trucks dominate the dusty roads. During harvest nights, their lights disco on the hills and chases each other around and around until deep into the night.

On the edge of this region, the fynbos mountains are filled with spring flowers, unaware of all the activity in the valleys, as they too ensure their future existence.

Then, all of a sudden, as soon as it has started it all comes to an end and every last bit of green and gold is replaced by dusty yellows and browns.

The ever changing Overberg goes to sleep until the next fall, when new seeds are sown again.”

  1. What beautiful landscapes you have in your backyard…;-) And how well you have captured and conveyed their magnificence to us. Another very very nice film Liesel, congratulations. This one even has images that echo the mountains and aeolians in my own backyard…;-)

    Loved it!

    1. Thank you Nobillis Bellator, glad you approve!!
      Yes, I am extremely fortunate too live in a region that changes landscapes every season! It has become my passion to show the Overberg in all it’s splendor to the world. Many more to come next winter when all is green again…
