SwimSwam Film Fest: Swimming Pool, an animated film

I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short swimming animation simply titled, Swimming Pool, created by Alexandra Hetmerova.

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.
