Swim

Matthew Reeler

A film about finding friendship in the most unexpected of places. Two strangers both discover they share a deep fear, and by sharing their pain, help each other to overcome it.

Behind the scenes of Swim

When we wrote this, we aimed to make a film that didn't rely on it's concept, but rather script and performance. We were very lucky to have two amazing actors to work with, and an incredible crew to help them.

We filmed in the Long Street Baths in Cape Town. The location was very difficult as we couldn't close the pool, and had to shoot around the swimmers there. But we managed somehow!

The amazing Zootee Studios sponsored us. We shot on the Red Dragon, Stedicam, and with some huge Sony primes.
