documentary 2016

Inspired by my passion for both swimming and my creativity I was approached by directors Jack Webber and Tomasso Di Paola to feature in a short documentary about how the two have become one and the same. 

"Beautiful cinematography, this film really evokes a sense of isolation which by the end of the film you learn is what the protagonist is yearning for. A very watchable and inspiring short that flies in the face of many adventure films which focus on quantifiable achievements, instead, Afterglow is about authenticity and creativity and how a passion becomes a lifestyle. Watch for a poetic glimpse at photography, form and outdoor swimming – despite the snowy vistas this film leaves you with a warm feeling inside.
