As the scientific community began hearing about Dr. Schwarz research into Stella Lansing’s phenomena the interest in her “abilities” grew. Many researchers tried to explain the bizarre photographs of crafts, lights, and the clock-like patterns infused in Stella’s film as technical glitches. That somehow light had filtered in the camera causing the anomalies. They also entertained the idea that her 8mm film had been superimposed. Something that would have been easy to do at the time.
However not one of them ever managed to prove exactly how Stella captured those images. They were not able to explain how these images appeared on different types of cameras with different types of film. All showing the same patterns and ghostly images.
Stella never regressed to the state of mind she was in 1967 when she checked-in to a state hospital. After the psychiatric help from Dr. Schwarz, she managed to keep her head together and continue her exploration into the strange phenomena that surrounded her.
It wasn’t until 1991 that the television show Sightings got ahold of Stella and Dr. Schwarz and ran a lengthy and concise segment on the phenomena. During the show’s investigation, the exported Stella’s silent 8mm film of ‘the occupants’ onto VHS. When they did this, the investigators were shocked when they heard undistinguishable voices from the film.
It was clear that the strange phenomena that had been following Stella for over three decades was partially captured on different mediums.
Stella continued to jot down dates and notes every time she had an unnerving experience. A curiosity turned obsession. Stella Lansing passed away in 2012. Never knowing the truth behind her haunting phenomena.

I was interested up until the point the guy started claiming that this could not be done by anyone other than a lab and that she would not be capable of falsifying these images...
People need to remember that someone like this, believing they are capturing something, will have thousands upon thousands of hours of completely normal footage, and thousands of perfectly normal images, before they pick out the handful that show something unusual.
If you film constantly with one of thee cameras for a few hours, then go back through that footage, you will find plenty of abnormalities. This is old technology, and it's old for a reason. The quality of the images captured is nothing like we would expect to see even back in the late 80's. When you combine this probability with the sheer number of frames she likely produced, you will find plenty that doesn't make sense.
In short, she's filming images on an old camera, picking out the abnormalities, and presenting them as being something unusual.
What's the alternative explanation? That she has a "magic camera"? That's she specifically is a magical person with special powers?
This should be able to be replicated under scientific conditions, why hasn't it been?
