UltimateBeat - UB documentary Released 10/22!

Here is a teaser of UltimateBeat - too much to lose, a documentary in production about the insider fraud at UltimateBet. The project got off the ground in February and we have acquired gear and shot some good footage (click the graphics). I'm really excited and grateful for the folks who have agreed to participate so far and we still have some strong shoots left to do.


If you have an interesting story, anecdote or experience to tell about being cheated, any of the UB folks or the refund/PR effort, please visit our website and use the contact form or send an email to doubleheadpics@gmail.com


We also need a relatively small amount of funds to complete the project and have set up a Kickstarter page that will run for the next 30 days. Crowdfunding the balance of the project is cool because the investigations were primarily a crowdsourcing effort.

Sometimes you just have to let it go. EG has done a ton of excellent work for 2p2'rs and many members want to see this done.

re: UltimateBeat - UB documentary Released 10/22!

I love what you are doing and I have always followed your posts and research.

I think the video needs to be more clear right form the start as to what went on. My guess is that this piece is not clear enough for those not familiar with the scandal. I think you could consider starting the video out with some more obvious statements.

You need to start with something that catches the viewer's attention immediately. You don't want people closing it after the first 20 seconds. See a 48 hours opening as an example. There is so much intrigue with all of this and I think you should use that.

The clip is ok for those in the know, but I assume that you would like a broader audience to watch the video.

re: UltimateBeat - UB documentary Released 10/22!

So looking forward to this documentary.

I must say it's kinduv funny seeing Brad Booth to start the trailer as he's been on both sides of the fence: scammed and now scammer. I often wonder if getting cheated at UB was the catalyst for the road he's gone down. Really seems to have messed with him. I hope he can repay what he owes and get back on his feet. Everybody loves a good redemption story.

Is it just me, or does a having a guy with a British accent somehow lend extra credibility to any documentary?
