SwimSwam Film Fest: I’m a film festival fan, and I love swimming films and video shorts.
This Sunday Swim video comes from filmmaker, Sarosh Joacb, at saroshjacob.com.
If you have an interesting or beautiful swimming-related video, 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.
FROM SAROSH: Palau is a special place. Thousands of years ago these jellyfish became trapped in a natural basin on the island when the ocean receded. Over time they evolved into a new species that lost most of their stinging ability.
