Touch The Wall Exclusive Video Starring Missy Franklin

In advance of the DVD release of their film Touch the Wall, filmmakers Grant Barbeito and Christo Brock caught up with Missy Franklin to ask a few questions about the star’s experience of being in the film. Missy, now back in Colorado training with her former and present coach Todd Schmitz, talked with the filmmakers about the film.

After a turbulent but successful stint swimming with Teri McKeever at UC Berkeley, Missy returned to the town of her roots to focus on the long course summer season. Back in March, Missy turned professional, and since then has inked deals with Speedo and Minute Maid. Missy is proof that you can go home again.

DVDs of Touch the Wall are now available on the film’s website store. Get them here.

Did they ever send out copies of the film to Kickstarter backers? Just realized I had an issue w/ my email address on Kickstarter, assuming I missed it.

I haven’t got my copy yet. I wonder when they plan to deliver it by email (?).

Outside of people gossiping about Missy swimming some off events in college and not swimming as fast at times as some people hoped, what was “turbulent” about her college experience? As far as I know she loved it at Cal. Did Missy say something or did some conflict come out that I missed?

TTW Backers – thanks to all of you for your support, and we’re working to get you all the downloads you pledged for. Until we secure that digital platform to do that – iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, i.e. – we can only offer old school DVDs and BluRays. We’re offering them half off to KS backers who want a copy of the film now.
