Let’s Go Swimming

Comedy drama from award-winning comedian Josie Long about a young woman trying to build a new, more fulfilling life for herself in Glasgow – the Indie Band Theme Park, where Josie will finally be happy and accepted. But it’s harder than she thought to make friends and even just to go swimming.

Our two shorts (Romance & Adventure is the second one (Josie gets a pal) vimeo.com/77275071) have been made into a Radio 4 series bbc.co.uk/programmes/b074zw4l

Let’s Go Swimming was made shortly after Josie met director Douglas King at an arts festival in Newcastle. Josie came up to Glasgow for a week and they wrote the script – Josie Long Glasgow Film as it was known then – in the children’s section of the Mitchell Library. A month after, they were on a 5 day shoot with an amazingly talented cast and crew.

Nominated for 2 BAFTA New Talent Awards, they’ve been on a 25 date UK cinema tour too, which was seen by over 1,700 people.
