Rachel (Kimberly Leemans) finds out she might have terminal breast cancer and with the help of a handsome dive master, Luca (Falk Hentschel), decides to face her biggest fear… swimming with SHARKS! Unlike Spielberg’s mechanical shark, The Big Swim was filmed on location with wild bull sharks, without stunt doubles, cages, or special FX in Cozumel, Mexico. Starring the brave Kimberly Leemans (Walking Dead) and Falk Hentschel (‘Hawkman’ in Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, The Flash). Featuring music by Peter Bradley Adams. WINNER! Cinematography Award – Universal Film Festival, St. Louis, MO Judges comments included: “Great panoramic and ethereal shots that contributed to the warmth and sentimentality of the film.” “The film told a warm love story with a strong female protagonist facing her fears. If you don’t feel it, then you’re just cold.” “Visually stunning! The underwater scenes are gorgeous.” “Enjoyed the story and film, I was entertained and the story kept my interest.” “Solid 10 for cinematography and writing.” “Solid 10 for performances, pacing, sound and music and direction.” “A film with heart. It came off as steadily driven by sincerity and reflected real sentiment without giving into sentimentality.” “Good story. Good heart. Ace production value and drive.” “Award-worthy”
