The Big School Swim

Empica worked with Neil Phillips Photo and Film on this promotional video for the ASA celebrating 125 years of school swimming. Capturing the fun and excitement of a special swimming lesson held at Everyone Active’s Bristol South Pool. Over 60 pupils from Ashton Gate Primary and Hotwells Primary were joined by Olympic heroes Rebecca Adlington, Cassie Patten, James Goddard, Craig Figes and Adele Carlsen to take part in a range of activities.

The event was hosted by Olympic bronze medallist and swimming champion Steve Parry. Pupils experienced how swimming lessons have changed throughout the years with a look at how swimming was taught 1890s style. They were then treated to a present day lesson, before looking to the future by racing the athletes. Video production and filming was by Neil Phillips, supported by Empica’s Lisa Marley, who provided editing input.
