DVD to show ultimate to non-players [message #414] Wed, 24 September 2008 20:51 Go to next message

I would like to be able to show non-ultimate playing friends (wow, I
actually have those?) what ultimate can look like at its best and most
athletic. Sure, I'm not the best or most athletic, but I'd still like
to show off the sport to some people.

Driving them out to spend all day watching regionals won't cut it for
a few reasons, and I don't really want to drop ~$30 per DVD until I
find one that's good.

I've got lots of field hockey player friends, and my new neighbor's a
former Northwestern free safety (or was it SF?). They're curious.

I know there are tons of clips at ultivillage and online, but I'd
really like to see more continuous footage (not just 1-2 second
highlights) and something that will not look like gigantic pixels on a
53" TV.

Any recommendations?

Thanks!

I think the Above & Beyond DVD from 2000 is great:

Most of the stuff done by the Ultivillage is fairly good for that. I
have used it to the show the family and friends back home how my wife
and I spend our weekends. If you don't care what tourney or footage
you can probably find a good deal on some of the older stuff. Check
it out.

Agreed. Ultivillage has a good mix of highlights and game footage. I
have the '06 and '07 club championships and they are both good DVD's.

Of course you would.

You know nothing about Ultimate.

I'm wondering Joe, how often do you throw the ol' Above and Beyond on the
tube and watch it?

I like watching the Rhino highlight reels from last year. High def, no
lulls, and some humor thrown in for good measure. I watch the
Nationals story most often, because I like the drama and don't want
the action too condensed, like it is in most reels out there.

Another vote for the Ultivillage discs....I used disc one to show my
dad what the sport was all about, the actions great (although the
music sucks)
