I this thread still active? Hahaha! I would have certainly thought it would have died by now.
We'll put it this way, I am a filmmaker, and quite well versed in camera tricks, and tricks that can be used to fool the camera.
All of the video posts on this thread are copies of the original video supplied from "Prophet Yaweh's" website.
Here's a rundown of possible tricks (the same stuff that's been used to fool viewers in such modern films as Star Wars Episide 3, as well as old
films such as the kind of "dime a dozen" sci fi films made in the 50s (and "War of the Worlds" (the original, you youngouns) is no exception).
Smudge on the camera.
Object with a similar shape (which would logically flutter down with the large side facing downwards, assuming proper weight in the large section)
being tossed into the air.
Unknown object being shot across the camera shot by persons unknown (a paintball will create a similar effect).
an object dangled in front of the camera, yet slightly out of focus (very common trick in 50s sci fi films)
post production CG editing (once again, not too expensive - as an indie filmmaker, I've reserached and priced about all of it - the cheapest is about
$40 (USD), and the ost expensive basic CG editior is about $1000, USD) - as a side note, the software I'm looking to buy is about $550 USD, and
covers all the basics, including anomalous lights in the middle of the frame with no apparent light source (or anomolus objects with no apparent
origin, staying within the properties of the ambient lighting presented within the raw footage).
I've seen the supposed "summoning footage" of Prophet Yahweh, andremain unconvinced, even with the footage he shot with real news coverage team. I
know, as a filmmaker, that it's VERY easy to conceal others (acceptably enough that they won't be detected by others - the camera detects things
before the human eye will), and it's quite possible, from concealed locations to deploy balloons or other lighter than air devices, especially ones
small enough to see in low atmosphere that could believably be high atmosphere UFOs. Hell, eve n I myself convinced my father of UFOs after just
winging a simple putty scraper into the air without him seeing, and having the light catch it just right. For a brief second, he thought it was a
hundred miles away, before I started laughing, and it fell into my back yard, a mere 15 feet away from us.
"Prophet" Yaweh is a tool, a fake, a fraud, and above all else, he's the kind of person that tries to drive people away from their spiritual
beliefs. He's deplorable.
Decide for yourselves, and any bits that you might think are "movie magic", no matter how primitive, ask me... I'll tell you how it's done.
Hoaxes are easy. Making a real movie is hard.
