OK RSVers. I am finishing the first draft of the 1996 FIVB Beach Volleyball
Technical Video. I will be faxing it to Switerland on Jan 10th, when Dr.
Acosta returns from his vacation at home in Mexico. What dawned on me was
that while I talk with Singin and others about the film, that the grassroot
player is who this is mostly directed at. The footage will be shot during the
1996 games, so it will be very diverse in race, both genders, and the best
players in the world. It also will have the Olympic rings in the background,
something nice for beach volleyball aficianados. Slow motion, graphics,
freeze frame and all that.
My question is, what do you want to make sure is on there. Basic 6 skills,
the unique shots, like cobra, sky ball serves, team strategies...that will be
there. The FIVB is going all out on this project, so the sky is the limit.
There will be net cams and all, but this is not TV footage, it will be
cameramen focused on the players before and after contact. Overhead shots are
still being discussed, when I get to my FIVB Technical Committee meetings Jan
29-Feb 6th in Lausanne.
Post your replies for us all to thread on, or email me at
PS I also plan to put it into CD rom form...
