I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short film, this short swimming video, Swimmer, captured by Lynne Ramsay.
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 / director:
Director : Lynne Ramsay
Production company: Warp Films
Commissioned by the London Olympics 2012
Shot in location in Devon, London, and underwater tanks in Pinewood and Basildon
Apologies, the original excerpt had to be shortened due to the producers requests.
I hope you enjoy this shorter excerpt, the full short will be available early next year distributed by Criterion and Cinema 16.
Article on American Cinematographer coming up in December.
Thanks for your patience.
