Serious Swimmers



Serious Swimmers is Andy's latest film, commissioned in the collabor8te 2013 development scheme, an adaptation of a Michel Faber short story.

"A supervised visit between estranged mother and son,
Gail and Anthony gives hope for reconciliation. Can the water of the local swimming pool soothe their difficult past."

Andy has spent the past year writing Serious Swimmers, early in 2013 Serious Swimmers was selected for development funding as part of the Collabor8te talent scheme run by Rankin Film Productions. In June 2013 the project was green-lit to go into production, shooting commenced at the end of September 2013.

The project is currently in post production with a full release expected in early 2014.
