Yep if everything holds true to form the rumors of these guys being "forced to come clean" by the government to cover up the fact that it is real
footage blahblahblah should start in the next day or so if it hasn't already.
I hate shenanigans.
And isn't a film commision supposed to be involved with a project from the start considering it's their money or do they just give the film makers
money and say have fun.
Could this be considered artistic expression?
My feeling of course is it isn't it's just hoaxing weenies but maybe I just take this stuff too personal.
From the article:
Perth filmmaker Christopher Kenworthy, the man behind the short films and website – which will all be included in a documentary on the 'project'
and its impact – prefers the term "immersive artwork" or artistic illusion, and convinced the Australian Film Commission that the website would
not mislead people.
I'm not too familiar with this but didn't the website in fact mislead people completely?
Not everyone that goes to a UFO site is a researcher and you can't just lump all people interested in ufos and the paranormal into one basket the
diversity and reasons for being interested in ufos are as varied as the subject itself.
I also don't believe they have the right to claim that this is all somehow a well thought out experiment. And to claim their goal was to improve ufo
research is just bunk.
I'm not familiar with australian law but I'd love to see some form of class action suit brought against these guys and the film commission.
Isn't this akin to making a series of films about an amazing cure for cancer or aids and then saying...oh no this was just an experiment to see how
people would react to a miracle cure.
They're no better than SERPO just evidently a bit smarter IMO of course.
