My amateur elbow knee analysis was telling me that it wasn't a child in suit...

Just my observation, and there might be a legit reason for this. The collar on the uniform seems a little small to get over skinny bobs head unless the material is super stretchy or has some form fastening at the back that I can't see.
Seems a tight fit to the skinny neck.

1. Digital camera video of 8mm film projection. Film recorded at 16fps
2. Projector running at 24fps, video slowed to exactly half making it 12fps.
2b. See projector sound youtu.be... SET TO 0.5X
3. Timestamp is from digital camera and is also going half speed.
4. Camera brightness constantly changes from bright flashing projector light.
5. Bright projector also causes timestamp to react. Line is just a glitch in the 6.
5b. Glitch likely occurs where the 6 is because it's changing every second.
5c. Only appears on the 6 and not around it. youtu.be...
6. Horizontal colored banding indicative of modern camera. youtu.be...
7. Black bars edited in to hide date and origin but KGB logo still present.
(my video below is speed corrected to 16fps and brightened)
I spent about 50 hours analyzing, researching, and debunking the myths about skinny bob.
If you have a link to an analysis, I've likely seen it. All can be explained.
He is likely real and no apparent manipulation was done to the footage except the black bars and slow down.
I don't agree that it's "obvious CG" or "ps2 graphics" but feel free to share that opinion down below.

I'm not sure either, years is a bit much depending on how often he worked on it.
better way to phrase the question would be
If you had to guess how many hours he logged making this, how many would it be?
I really want everyone to guess so we can paint a picture of how unexpectedly difficult this level of CGI is. not just time consuming, but artistic skill as well. I think skinny bob looks as real or more real than this model. If bob had hair, it might be easier to tell cgi because the hair on ed is the only dead giveaway. besides the disembodied head of course...
edit: we're on a new page so im gonna post the video again here

If it was a paid venture it would be spending at the very least 8,000+ to make a 10 second video. Where is the return for the investment. A few thousand spread out over years in views on youtube? Add it to a UFO doc with a budget of 30,000? It makes no sense unless there is some viable production value.
So you have just explained why it is real. Thank you.
i This is a crucial point. The bleached-out skin and heavily shadowed eyes are a clear sign of digital trickery as skin and eyes are notoriously difficult to render photorealistically, even using Hollywood technology; it’s common practice, therefore, to disguise lack of detail or definition with extremes of light and shadow.
ii Again, this is crucial. What Leanne means here is that, if the footage genuinely dated from the 1940s, we might expect to see ‘jumps’ and ‘jerks’ in any on-camera movement owing to natural degradation of the celluloid over time and to other damage the film may have incurred over six decades. Yet the “alien’s” movements are remarkably fluid. While we see jumps and jerks in the second video (the one of the crashed saucer), these too can be created digitally.
iii Following on from my comment above, it’s important to note here that the ‘grainy’ look is easily achieved by increasing the ’gain’ (GAIN, not grain) option. The higher the gain, the grainier the look. As for the black and white – that’s just a standard filter option in any editing package. Software packages also come with numerous other filter options enabling the filmmaker to make his/her film ‘look’ pretty much any way that want it to.
iv The jumpsuit disguises most of the alien’s difficult-to-render skin (which would require very subtle and difficult texturing).

As for CGI attempts: someone out there is trying....

But nobody has come close:
Let me clear this up real fast for all of you .
In 2007 i made two fake alien videos on youtube , they were both black and white and had aliens in them that had blinking eyes . they came from a TV show that was airing on cable at that time , they were debunked about one week after i posted them , they might have got about 5.000 views ? No more than that .
After they were bebunked i removed them my channel but they were copyed and other users re posted them and they have stayed on youtube for almost 4 years now. When i see them i always post in the comment box that there fake and i made them . Every one knows i made the old videos .
Now , this guy ivan0135 a new youtube user just posted two videos of so called aliens from the 1940's up to the 1960's , they are both black and white and in one the alien blinks it's eyes . Now this nut case in here telling you a bunch of lies about me is hell bent on trying to get everyone to buy into the fact that im ivan0135 and i made the new videos ,four years later , as you can see buy his posts he is on a witch hunt across the internet trying to get anyone to buy this BS .
He has his facts all mixed up , my real name is billy cruise , my website address was novaworldgaming.com , NOT novagaming.com . This person your dealing with here is "stone cold crazy" . here are all the links you need to look into this story for yourself. This is a link to the starter of this post: [link to www.youtube.com] This is a link to ivan0135 channel the guy who made the new alien videos : [link to www.youtube.com] This is a link to my youtube channel: [link to www.youtube.com]
This person is slandering me across the net based on a hunch ! Based on the fact that my videos 4 years ago where done in black and white and ivan0135 videos are B&W and in both videos the alien has blinking eyes , thats it nothing more , if you look at both sets of videos you can see my old videos were made with windows movie maker , ivan0135 videos are completely professional. Where is the proof !!!!
