SwimSwam Film Fest: North Narrabeen Public Pool, Dawn

I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short film, this short swimming video, Narrabeen Dawn, captured by Jason Wingrove.  Wingrove has captured several of my favorite swim videos, all of them teasers for a documentary film he’s producing on the Aussie ocean pool culture.

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 producer:

This is 2nd teaser for a documentary in production on the Australian ocean pool culture in Sydney. Early morning at North Narrabeen, a public pool in Sydney’s northern beaches. Getting there at 6am there were already swimmers in the winter water.
