Winner of best factual film at the Royal Television Awards in the South West region.
Wild swimming is growing increasingly popular with swimming communities popping up all over Britain. This film explores the individuals within one of these communities, and the reasons why they choose to swim in such cold waters, and the effect it has on their lives. Before I began filming, I decided it would be important to join the Devon & Cornwall Wild Swimming Community, of which this film focuses on and swim in the cold sea myself. This helped me show stories and experiences in the most genuine light possible.
