Looking for videos Can't Post

I've had good stuff for a while now. I'm looking for a video or a DVD thats a good mix of skydiving and base related stuff but different from Good Stuff. Any suggestions ?Smile

Fistfull of F-111 is my personal favorite. The (little) skydiving is kind of so-so, but the BASE footage is very good.

You might also check out Beyond Extreme, which has no skydiving, but some outrageous BASE footage.

Have a look at this thread in the BASE forum.

Most of the BASE I've seen on skydiving videos is pretty mediocre. It always amuses me to see "tandem video" BASE stuff in the middle of a bunch of radical freeflying.

Check out Crosswind by Patrick Passe. Superb skydiving and BASE.

I don't know where you could grab a copy, but my favourite by far is a lesser known base/freeflying one called Standard Issue. It is by far the most professionally presented and brilliantly soundtracked video I have seen (mind you, I've only seen about 5 other vid's :) ). Try http://www.basejump.org/discus/messages/1/43.html?1038932244

"Fist Full of F1-11" has some crazy base stuff, but is pretty sloppy in the editing department. If you're only looking for the footage, this is an awesome vid. I especially like the skydive onto then BASE jump off Centrepoint Tower (Sydney, Australia) and some painful looking building strikes.

"For a few more jumps" is "fist Full"'s sequal and is pretty much the same, except shorter and less older footage. They're both collections of Austalian BASE jump footage from around the world. There's a fantastic (non-jumping related) scene where a yank bets an Aussie that his 12 guage shot gun can't pierce skin from 100m away - I was laughing so hard with the outcome! (http://www.totalcontrol.com.au/videos.htm)

There's another video I own called BASEclimb (http://www.baseclimb.com), which is a good documentary about a pair of Aussies basejumping Trango Towers in Pakistan. Definately worth a watch. There's also a sequal to the documentary, BASEclimb 2, which you usually get on the same video/DVD.

Finally, if you've got a fast Internet connection, check out ftp://ftp.skydivingmovies.com. My favourite is ftp://ftp.skydivingmovies.com/public/base/basecollision_DivX.avi
