I was given the heads up on this news article by our reader Henry P.

Apparently the IMAX film “Great North” 2001, contained an odd scene that went undetected for years. Undetected until some observant person spotted this odd figure while watching the documentary.

In the video, you can see a herd of Caribou crossing a river. Very swiftly you can see in the background near the herd a humanoid looking creature stand up and run and crouch again. Many are saying that the camera crew might have captured Sasquatch on IMAX film.

The BFRO has setup a page on their website in order to bring this up to the attention of the documentary’s director or film crew.

Check out the non-IMAX footage:



What do you think? A lone Caribou? A member from the film crew getting a closeup shot? or Bigfoot?

This still frame from the 2001 IMAX film “Great North” by documentarist Martin Dignard, shows a figure that may be a sasquatch.

The film explores the natural history of two regions — Northern Quebec and Northern Scandinavia — with a focus on caribou/reindeer herds.

This particular clip of caribou migration was obtained at a remote location in either Quebec or Labrador (the film doesn’t specify).

The clip was shot from a great distance with a telescopic lens. It shows droves of caribou crossing an unnamed body of water (either a river, or a lake arm, or a fjord arm).

As a pack of caribou exits the water, an upright figure pops up out of a ditch and scrambles toward the moving herd, then quickly hunkers down again out of view. The darting figure is visible only for a few seconds, and only from head to mid-torso.

For the sake of simplicity, and objectivity, we’ll call this dark figure the “Great North Figure” or “GNF”.

We first heard about the GNF a few weeks ago, after some eagle-eyed person noticed it while watching Great North on HULU. That person re-watched the clip a few times and became more intrigued. Subsequently he/she posted something about it on an Internet message board. That board posting encouraged a few other people to send us emails about it. Then we watched the film on HULU ourselves.

The entire documentary can be viewed online for free
at HULU.com (though not in IMAX resolution).

If you are a Canadian, let us know if you have any trouble watching Great North
on HULU. We’ve heard rumors that HULU films cannot be seen by Canadians.
Is that true? Let us know at CONTACT@BFRO.net

You may think it’s too quick and too small to distinguish conclusively from a human form — one of many “maybe” clips out there obtained from a distance. … But there’s an interesting twist here: This dark figure was filmed with an IMAX camera.

Normally it doesn’t take long to determine how much detail there might be on a distant figure when enlarged. But we’re not looking at the original IMAX images here. We’re looking at images with a much lower resolution than the original IMAX images.

Even in the best scans of the original IMAX images, the facial features of this figure may not be defined, but undoubtedly more details of the upper body will be discernable. The figure may appear more sasquatch-like, and less human-like, when enlarged in the highest possible resolution. … Or it may appear more human-like, and less sasquatch-like. It’s certainly sasquatch-like enough right now to justify a re-scan of those frames, whereever they may be.

Has Dignard (the Director) been Contacted about this Yet?

The short answer: No, not yet, as far as we know.

This web page had to be put online first to ensure the whole crew could see exactly what we’re talking about, without any grapevine confusion. Dignard himself may not have been present for this particular migration shoot. The background information suggests he spent a larger part of the production period on the Scandinavian shoot. The crew(s) for the Quebec/Labrador sequences would be the people to ask directly about this clip, and about this figure.

Although the film has credits at the end listing all the crew members, there’s no way to ascertain the roster of people who helped obtain this particular clip.

This author (Matt Moneymaker) is making certain guesses here. One of those guesses is that the people connected with the production have no idea what this fugure is … if they’ve ever noticed it at all. It is not mentioned in the narration of the film, nor in the “behind-the-scenes film (included in the DVD version)… even though it is a dramatic little bit of action — action which would be particularly pertinent to this documentary, if it was an Inuit hunter at work, etc.

In no other sequences showing caribou out in the open, is there a crew member accidentally in the background … If something like that happened during filming, they probably would not have used that clip, or they would have cut it shorter in the final editing.

The specific sequence, and the options of what the figure might be … needed to be fully presented on a web page, rather than by calling around. Approaching it this way will elicit answers much faster from the crew. The answers will be more accurate, and more of the people involved will be able to provide input. It was a sizeable crew. They may be in different parts of the world by now, but they probably still keep in touch via email.

That is very very interesting and it does look like something is creeping around in the background there in that video and then crouches down - I dunno what it is, but it looks suspicious and it shouldnt be there.

This clip needs to be extensively analyzed. I am optimistic that it is Sasquatch, but more evidence needs to be gathered. At least with the other animals in the shot, a relative size value can easily be determined.

Yeah, can we get some of our experts here to analyze this clip somehow and come up with some kind of answer?

Whatever that is, is walking up-right like a human....at least that is my initial thought.

My first thoughts were a black bear but if you watch it enough times its starts to look more human like. Great find OP im sure many ATSers will be scratching their heads and arguing about this for some time to come.

"JediKnightLar Yeah. I just watched it over there on BFRO. That's disappointing. The blu-ray version is pretty clear. The imax negative isn't really necessary now. It's a crew member with a backpack guiding the herd for the shot. :-( I have to get a blu ray player. That picture quality really is better than the standard dvd players."

Look for yourselves.

Peace

Looks like a bear to me. I cannot see it as a bigfoot.

Wow.
While it could easily be a hunter or cameraman in netted camo, I don't see any hint of a gun or camera. Then again, I only just watched the small, embedded version.
I think it could be film of a GNF.

I wouldn't take that as gospel. I have a hard time believing what a lot say in some of those youtube comments. I'd rather have someone that knows what they are doing inspect it.

yeah, that's why i say "Look for yourselves", the film crew would know who it is if it is a staged shot, so that's where we'll get the truth, anyone know the filmmakers?... lol?

peace

.............looks like the youtube guy was correct after all...lol! It's a human.

I dunno, im still not convinced that is some dude wearing a backpack. Im not saying its Bigfoot, but I dont think that is a human being.........could be an ape maybe.

I mean, the article above mentions that if a part of the film crew was in a scene that it would be cut etc. Maybe they initially thought it was part of the herd or something? I dunno.

Looks like a person to me, nice find


On first viewing I wasn't sure but watching it again I am certain it's a person moving whilst crouching, facing the camera.

Looks rather conclusive to me.

In the better quality video it looks like a ninja, or Bin Laden..lol, seriously though it looks very human to me! Great Vid!

Sorry I just don't see an ape in that video... When it puts it's hand up there is no hair on it's hand and you can clearly see that there is a foreign object on the persons back, almost looks like a tripod or a backpack.

I dont think its 100% conclusive. But it maybe close enough.

Thanks for posting that. I can see that it is a person now.

Here's a link to the "full" film, unfortunately i can't see it as it only streams in the USA,

www.hulu.com...

If someone watches this scene, and there are also shots from opposite side of the river of the caribou, then "busted", definite proof there's your camera man.
Why won't they stream to the UK?

Peace

On the hulu link, the part in question starts right around 9:35 in. After whatever it is hides down, the herd appear to stampede right on top of it. I doubt if it was a human just because he would've been trampled to death but it's hard to say.
