Having worked in the stage magic profession for many years I have many times used a technique called back light projection. I am not revealing any
deep dark magical secrets, as you would need to know which tricks used them to learn much. It is an old technique which can either use a white sheet
with backlighting and a black object behind ( funnily enough much like the Indian shadow puppet theatre ) or more rarely with a pre-recorded image
projected onto the back of the white sheet. I won`t go into more detail about camera movements as this may be too revealing!
This is clearly a staged event with all parties involved, there are too many single facts which are wrong, adding up to a comple hoax. In an age of
CGI it is suprising that such an ancient technique can fool the modern eye so easily. With the ease of use and lack of expense ( a lightbulb or two, a
couple of reflectors or dustbin lids, two hands, something to cast a shadow,
a couple of thin clear plastic rods or fishing line and a white sheet, bingo!
E.T. has not only landed, but is in your own home.
