I need a pool. As the summer temperatures creep from warm to scorching, I become a kind of addict – harassing friends for a hit of their chlorinated oasis. Like any addiction, it can become a desperate craving as I move from poolside at some close friend’s house to begging virtual strangers for a chance to smell their birdbaths. So I am happy to perpetuate such behavior here by sharing an amusing animation about swimming pools. The animated short is called Swimming Pool and was directed by Alexandra Hetmerová while she was still a student. The short centers on the events in a pubic pool closed for the night, and what happen when two folks find out that they have more in common than an affinity for midnight swims.
