I really like the video "You Like This!" If you haven't seen it, the full version is available on pinkbike. Second vid is the full.
So I did a search and found that basically everyone said the NWD series was good. So I got my hands on 7(seemed like everyone liked that one) and 10(the newest one I found). They were good, but I didn't care as much for the "jump/trick, jump/trick, jump/trick" over and over through the whole movie as I liked the jump/trick/a lot of great riding in "You Like This!"
Can anyone recommend some other videos I could check out that are more like "You Like This!" rather than Just jump/trick like the NWD vids I watched?

if you can get a hold of the old ones, watch kranked and see how it was done on 2" travel bikes.
Not a fan of most of Life Cycles...too much "art" and not enough riding. Follow Me has some pretty good riding.
Oh yeah, the Earthed series is pretty good too.
^^ And that never character makes some pretty rad POV vids . . . but the "talent" he hires is kinda sketchy.
^ well I am getting better at editing and have some good ideas for vids this year. Need to get more non-POV bike footage.
Only problem is I have only ridden on dirt once this year (Sunday), and had a great crash that resulted in a grade 2 concussion for me. Plus it's been raining like crazy around here so there won't be any riding vids for a while!
And I don't take any responsiblity for the "talent" in the vids! Especially the Whistler vid!

I only just today got my final clean bill of health from the ophthalmologist on my fractured orbit. Another season opener saga.
On the plus side, both of you can hit the trails soon! I actually just had my first MTB crash this past week. I literally landed head first and had a sore neck for a couple days! I'm glad I got it out of the way, though. I'm a little more confident now that I have gotten it out of the way and it wasn't so bad. Maybe I should make a thread with a couple pictures of my scraped up face...
