Get Wet: The Syncro Swim Scratch Video

1988, 5 min, color, sound

Blumberg's approach is playful in Get Wet, which focuses on a local synchronized swim team in performance. His use of underwater camera, slow motion and close-ups gives the viewer an unusual perspective from which to watch the amateurs' routines. Blumberg's subtle application of special effects allows him to choreograph new moves for the swimmers.

Director/Camera/Editor: Skip Blumberg. Producer: Trisha Dair. Performers: Betsy Visniski and the Staten Island Synchronized Swim Team.
