SwimSwam Film Fest: A Frog Swimming Butterfly

  2 Gold Medal Mel Stewart | February 06th, 2013 | Featured, Lifestyle

I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short film, this short swimming video, A Frog Swimming Butterfly, captured by Joaquim Montserrat.

I am always on the lookout for great swim videos. If you have an interesting or beautiful swimming-related video and/or animated short,  please submit to Gold Medal Mel Stewart at swimswam to be featured. We appreciate all points of view on pools, lakes, rivers and oceans. Please include a little background on why you captured the video and the equipment you used (cameras, lens, editing software, etc.). Feel free to add your own story as well, 175 to 200 words works best. Also, a photo of the filmmaker would be nice to include.

From the Producers:


This is the making of a commercial done at Digital Magic Group.

In Japanese the word “Frog” and “Change” have the same sound. The commercial here plays with words : The power of Frog / The power of change.
This CG commercial was done very quickly, less than a month ! 

The music is From Susumu Yokota.

    This just in to the newsroom known as my living room: the Budweiser Frogs, and their chameleon and ferret friends will swim in the Men’s 4×100 medley relay in Barcelona this Summer.
