Wanted to generate some conversation regarding Ultiworld’s film coverage. I have some questions that don’t necessarily have right answers but I think it is worth having a discussion about.
Does Ultiworld currently grant film access to filmed teams of those games in which they played? If not, should they?
Most elite club teams (and I imagine elite college teams) film their games. Does this somehow change the conversation?
If film is granted to participating teams, should that include Nationals?
Is Akshat different since he makes his revenue from (I believe) sponsorship and youtube ad dollars?
Who “owns the rights” to filming teams? USAU? Tournament Directors? The teams themselves?
Can and should teams be able to request not to be filmed?
Feel free to answer any or all of these questions.
