SwimSwam Film Fest: I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short swimming film, A Portrait of Michael Phelps, captured by Christopher Filippone.
The short film was captured during a Michael Phelps photo shoot with Norman Jean Roy for Details Magazine, the 2012 August issue. The magazine feature story was written by Selene Yeager.
Here are the bonus stills from the Details shoot:
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.
