International audiences will delight in this nearly wordless burst of color and music that draws inspiration from film classic The Red Balloon, enchanted by the story of young Sylvie in her magical garden. Weaving together documentary and narrative elements, Watermelon Magic chronicles a season on the family farm, as Sylvie grows a patch of watermelons to sell at market.

Constructed entirely from over 200,000 high-resolution still photos, this 35-minute film employs a dynamic style of varying shutter-burst frame rates with stunning time-lapse sequences. We witness the elementary scientific concepts of the life cycle of plants, observing their journey from seed to flower to fruit. When harvest time arrives, Sylvie must decide if she will share her precious watermelon babies with the world.

Written, Directed and Produced by Richard Power Hoffmann. Edited by Jon Shearburn, Music by Peter Tramo, Director of Photography by Chase Bowman, Time-Lapse Photography by Tim Shepherd. © Spring Garden Pictures 2013.
