In a clear break from the industry's museum-oriented filmmaking tradition, ESPN and Disney (actually, Disney's alter-ego Touchstone Pictures) have released a Big Movie aimed squarely at the commercial audience. "Ultimate X" documents the 2001 Summer X-Games competition, displaying in Super-Size the thrills and risks of sports like Moto X, vert ramp skateboarding and BMX, and revealing the personas of the daredevil, sometimes irreverent athletes.

Watch the athletes in action and the cameramen at work filming them. Hear from the stars, and the filmmakers who made it happen...
