Ocean swimmer

Chris Stubbs is the organiser and instigator of the annual Shark Bait Swim in Huskisson, Jervis Bay. In this film Chris is swimming wearing a waterproof camera strapped across his forehead. To emphasise the repetitive nature of the exercise just one of the many shots he took while swimming is viewed here. The image having been cut from one take has no added effects on it. Recorded and played back in real time the rhythmic flow of swimming and the sounds of water create a sense of place.
