Artifact Documentary Show #1 "Make 'Em Hurt"

Fast action, great editing, evil beat downs and extreme emotions - Tim Montressor's tirade is a bit over the top and I'm glad they bleeped out the worst of it. The title sucks but overall, not a bad tourney video if you are into that kind of stuff. Not for the faint of heart or for T2 rec ballers. See it here.

While the video is put together well, it reminds me of why paintball is so boring to watch on tv/video. You get no reference! All you ever see, is one guy shooting, one guy moving, one guy getting shot. Very rarely do you get to see people from opposing teams in the same frame. Without that, it's never clear what the player is doing. He might not even be shooting at anyone!

I've never understood why they dont show more birds eye views of the games.

Back when the NPPL was being shown on fox sports network, they were actually showing birds eye vies, highlighting players positions, and showing their streams of paint. It was, in my opinion, the best tv broadcast of game footage ever. You could actually see what was going on. It wasn't perfect, but it was a start.

I just wish more people would have built on what they started. Perhaps i'm the only one that wants to see how the field is cleared, how all positions are being held, what moves are made in response to people filling positions of bumping up the field.

Good points and I agree. I've always thought the same about football coverage. I would love to be able to see the plays setting up, players running routes, blockers setting up.

I guess the broadcasters feel we are not smart enough to want to see everything so instead we get spoon fed what's available.

True but at least with football there's a central focus: the ball. With paintball, not so much. Equally important action is being taken by all players at once.

Yeah there's the flag, but really that ends up being an afterthought to eliminating all players most of the time.
