Earth Vs The Flying Saucers…

This is a curious piece of footage. I first came across it 4 years ago whilst watching The Disclosure Project videos; the footage was dropped in almost as a subliminal edit during one of the witness interviews. It had an interesting unsettling effect somehow, and it stuck in my mind ever since.

As a piece of UFO footage it is very convincing. The UFO appears to be very real, its placement in the frame, the sense of depth, the camera shake, the camera zoom, and the fact it flies behind one of the buildings. If indeed it is a fake, then it is a very good one; and certainly would have taken some time, extensive technical knowhow and a hefty budget and equipment to pull off. Coming from a background loosely related to digital effects, I do have some idea about how something like this could be achieved, but to make it look this convincing would be very difficult indeed. Even with today’s technology and tools, compositing an object in a convincing and believable way would be pretty tough…

But why bother?

There are so many UFO photo’s and video clips, with so much variation in the UFO’s themselves, that its hard to really say if any of it could be genuine. Certainly some of the photos and videos have defied being proven as fake; the problem being then that they get lost in the sea of everything else that has. This is compounded further by the fact that the subject is wrapped in the ridicule that the sensational fringe eccentrics attract. So its a crowded market, so to speak, and even when everyone is clinging to the hope of some kind of definitive filmed proof that cannot be questioned, they are always expecting yet another fake…

Here’s another documentary I watched recently:

Look past the wobbly video that occasionally provides a quaint visual glitch; this documentary is actually rather good. It takes a much more serious approach than the kind of thing that we would typically see today (I don’t exactly when this was made, but it must be late 70’s or early 80’s judging by the style). The evidence is presented soberly and in a very structured, and objective way; and the arguments put forth are quite convincing and credible. I would also add that some are very disconcerting indeed…
