Paper Recommends – Swimming

Paper Vision have just started filming a new documentary on the Yorkshire wild swimming spot, Gaddings Dam. We have come across some brilliant stuff whilst researching it so here are two shorts that we especially loved.

10 Meter Tower

It couldn’t be simpler, put people at the top of a 30 metre diving board and film them. The result is brilliant as they all confront their fear and overcome it…or not.
My Big White Thighs & Me
Our film will be a large part about mental health and people using outdoor swimming to help manage it. This is a wonderful short film as a woman overcomes negative body image, a miscarriage and her mental health through cold water. Funny, inspiring and moving in equal measure.
