Kims Swim Around The World

Kate Webber announced that her documentary film, Kim Swims, will be distributed worldwide by independent film distributor, Gravitas Ventures.

Webber explains, "The film’s first wave of release is set for select worldwide VOD platforms starting October 2nd, 2018 — iTunes, Vimeo, Google Play, Vudu, Xbox, and Amazon. Customers can pre-buy, it helps get the movie better placement overall. Additional platforms to be announced as they are confirmed.

My biggest thanks on this great opportunity goes to our fantastic consulting producer, Marc Smolowitz. He has worked so hard— and with elegance— to reign in this opportunity together and make it a success! He is a gem of expertise and care, elevating our team and project. Also, huge thanks to Paul Szynol, for his kind understanding and sharp expertise as our lawyer on this.

Throughout the continuously evolving life of this film, I feel fortunate to have culled an incredible team and community. Massive thanks to Kimberley Chambers, first, for sharing on-camera so openly and trusting me to tell your story, talented cinematographer David Orr, for taking the deep dive with me along much of this rollercoaster, mans-got-mad-skills editor Chad Herschberger, our ridiculously talented composer Jeff Linsenmaier. We have had so many compliments on the original music in our film.

A warm and huge thanks also, to the ever-cool Danielle Holke, for playing an integral role behind the scenes as our marketing and outreach supervisor, making sure we stay connected with our social posts, emails and press opportunities. There are many other teammates I’d like to thank but it will go on and on.

It’s true, one of my greatest pleasures is seeing, hearing and reading how much this film touches those who see it. It makes all the hard work worth it

October 2nd is the scheduled global release.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
