Disguised in Nature is a beautiful short film by SA director Dan Mace, featuring surfers Bianca Buitendag and Johanne Defay.

Disguised in Nature is a an amazing short film created by Cape Town-based director and filmmaker, Dan Mace.

The film follows two surfers, Bianca Buitendag and Johanne Defay, on a trip to Australia, where they kicked off the professional season. Wanting to create more than just a standard surfing film, Dan focussed on the travelling, the stories and the lifestyle of being a surfer, all told through beautiful cinematography and editing. And, of course, the film features some great surfing as well!

If you have ten minutes to spare, do yourself a favour and watch this film.

Dan writes: “A couple of months ago, Bianca Buitendag called me and asked if I would be interested in filming her and Johanne Defay traveling to Australia and surfing a few events there. You know me, if it involves travel – I’m there. The only thing is that I was lost for a story, something different and gripping; I didn’t just want to make a stock standard surfing film with some surfing, tits and ass, and some music. Bianca and Johanne agreed, so together we decided to wing it. After experimenting with full post by myself for once not just the edit I learned a ton, but also got pretty attached to this piece.”
