I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love the short animated swimming film above titled 5m80 created by Nicolas Devaux.

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.

From the Producers
