Enchanting Fireflies Paint the Sky

Luminous fireflies create scenes similar to Vincent van Gogh’s "Starry Night" in this spectacular time-lapse video from filmmaker Vincent Brady. Brady captured these impressionistic images in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, and Grand Ledge, Michigan, during the summer of 2013.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic’s editors. We look for pieces that emphasize National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers themselves created the content presented here. The opinions expressed are those of the filmmakers, and not those of the National Geographic Society.

To submit films for consideration, please email SFS@ngs.org.
