SwimSwam Film Fest: Microadventure River Swim

I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this swimming video, Microadventure River Swim, captured by Alastair Humphreys.

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.
