Interesting Facts About Night Swim Movie:
In 2018, the director, Rod Blackhurst, and writer, Bryce McGuire, successfully sold a feature-length adaptation of their 2014 short film Night Swim to James Wan’s Atomic Monster. McGuire is set to direct the film.
The actual house used as the family home in the movie does not have a complete connection to the garage, allowing the pool to be visible from the front yard. A facade was added to create the illusion of a unified structure and to conceal the pool from the front view.
Originally a four-minute short film released in 2014, Night Swim maintained the same title, writer, and director, featuring a narrative that evolved into a feature-length project.
