Probably the best camera angle would be (for RHBH) left side of the tee, a little back so we can see the disc leave, and maybe looking down on you a bit. The only way to mess it up would be right behind the tee or right of the tee where all we see is your back.

I don't think # of throws is that big of a deal, I think 5 is enough. Just make them good throws that you feel are good common throws for you, indicative of your ability.

Standards are really nice, like Rocs, Buzzzes, Teebirds, Wraiths, etc, but not super important. Something stable (neutral) or close to it would give the most feedback and according distances. Just let us know what you're trying to throw hyzer, flat or anhyzer if it isn't obvious.

As long as we can see your shoulders, hips, and arms moving we're good. So a giant sandwich costume wouldn't be good. Hilarious, but not informative.

A playlist of what discs you are throwing in order is nice. A lot of people hold the disc up to the camera and half the time you can't read it. If it's windy, a wind screen on the mike is appreciated.

Bird eye view is good if you can get it. Down the line and side view are good, nice to have two perspectives to see different things. Make sure you get your follow through in the vid and try to have the camera stationary.

Aye. If you have your girlfriend holding the camera tell her to keep it on you and not the disc.
