Alien in the window: the hoax video + a still from the “real” one.
Posted by Xeno on May 30, 2008
The video below is a hoax … but a “real” one was shown at the press conference.
Bryan Bonner, a member of the Rocky Mountain Paranormal Research Society, … got together five members of the society Thursday night. “We started production about 8 p.m.,” he said.
“We rented ourselves a 4-foot-tall foam latex alien” from a costume shop, said Bonner, who saw the Romanek video six months ago. “We were going to buy one, but I didn’t want to blow the $230.” “They started rolling the video and moving the puppet up, down, around and sideways. They sent the video from the camera straight into a computer, and one of the computer geeks used 3-D animation graphics to make the puppet’s eyes seem to move, he said. “We gave him a couple little blinks.” The result was a ghost-like creature that looks slightly more animated than the one in Romanek’s video. “What they’re claiming would take thousands of dollars and a lot of time … we pulled the whole thing off for $90 and in five or six hours,” he said. Bonner said, “It’s so amazing that anyone would believe that video is a real space alien. And it’s so frustrating to see that they want to use city time and tax dollars on this.” – rmn
For higher resolution try this one where you can really see the eyes blink.
Here are two pics I captured from the higher res video. The second one shows the alien in the middle of a blink. The blinks happen very fast and look very realistic.
Pretty good. Jeff Peckman showed a different and longer supposedly real alien video filmed by Stan Romanek.
Jeff Peckman, who is pushing a ballot initiative to create an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission in Denver to prepare the city for close encounters of the alien kind, said the video is authentic and convinced him that aliens exist.
“As impressive as it is, it’s still one tiny portion in the context of a vast amount of peripheral evidence,” he said Wednesday. “It’s really the final visual confirmation of what you already know to be true having seen all the other evidence.”
When Peckman went before city officials this month to discuss his proposed ET initiative, he promised to show the video. Peckman said the general public will have to wait to see it because it’s being included in a documentary by Stan Romanek.
“No one will be allowed to film the segment with the extraterrestrial because there is an agreement in place limiting that kind of exposure during negotiations for the documentary,” he said.
But people won’t have to wait too long to see it for themselves.
“There is an open, public meeting in about a month in Colorado Springs,” Peckman said. “We’ll hope to do one in Denver at some point, and then in a few months, there will be the documentary that anybody can have, and it’ll have the footage.”
An instructor at the Colorado Film School in Denver scrutinized the video “very carefully” and determined it was authentic, Peckman said.
Peckman, 54, said the video was among the reasons he was “compelled” to launch the proposed ballot initiative, which has generated news as far as South Africa.
“It shows an extraterrestrial’s head popping up outside of a window at night, looking in the window, that’s visible through an infrared camera,” he said. The alien is about 4 feet tall and can be seen blinking, Peckman said earlier this month.
In a statement, Peckman said “other related credible evidence” proving aliens exist will be shown at Friday’s news conference, too.
In 2003, Peckman authored an off-beat ballot initiative that would have required the city to implement stress-reduction techniques. The “Safety Through Peace” initiative failed, but garnered 32 percent of the vote. – rmnews
The so-called proof that makes this video real was described by Peckman: “It starts out with a digital camera looking out across the room toward a window. There’s a couple of flashes of light. After a few seconds, there is a small head clearly rising above a sill, panning the room, blinking its eyes, all slowly. The skin of the alien’s oblong face, he said, is smooth, not wrinkled like the being in the popular film ‘E.T.’” – ct
Yeah, okay, here is a still from the press conference:
