Diana Nyad's Historic Swim Attempt

Moving Picture Captured the Sounds

Moving Picture was recently contracted to provide location sound recording and Motorola two-way radios on the high seas for Documenting Life's coverage of Diana Nyad's historic 103 mile swim from Havana to Key West. Nyad, a 61 year old New York City native, is known for her exploits in the swim world.

We sent one of our most experienced and qualified Sound Engineers, Scott Oullette, to cover the three-day event on their support yacht Bellissimo. Moving Picture recorded the drama as it unfolded.
