Western Cape amateur film maker Gershwin Williams has captured haunting footage of Cape Town under lockdown, during South Africa’s 21-day Lockdown.

Gershwin says: “A dose of my experiences in and around Cape Town, South Africa.”

Gershwin was able to capture the scenes of desolation because “I have an essential services permit, so I took my drone with me to work last week… the drone thing is just a hobby.”

Gershwin told SAPeople a couple of years ago (after he produced an amazing video of Chapman’s Peak) that he was on a mission “to capture as much of this beautiful country as I can, one video at a time”.


He never dreamed he’d ever be capturing footage of almost deserted Cape Town streets!
