THE COMMUNITY POOL
The Community Pool is a collective of artists and lovers of art who pool their creative resources to help their members achieve specific artistic goals. By rotating their support from artist to artist, the collective strives to promote each artist individually at a time when help is most needed.
SYNC OR SWIM
Sync or Swim is the first-ever feature-length documentary about the Olympic Synchronized Swimming Team. It's a splashy look at a marginal sport where U.S.A.'s top synchronized swimmers endure rigorous training and overcome unthinkable obstacles to compete for Olympic glory. Sync or Swim is an independent documentary production and is being made without the financial support of a television channel or production company. The filmmakers are currently raising money for finishing funds. www.synchromovie.com On March 15th The Community Pool hosts a Dance-a-Thon(g) to benefit Cheryl Furjanic's independent feature-length documentary film Sync or Swim.
