I don't have much ATS time at the moment, but a few comments.
I'm bugged by the following basics:
- complete lack of provenance - who took this, when, how, what camera, why?
- are disney that broke that they can only afford complete garbage for security cameras?
- why no timing marks? Maybe it's in a special mode, but normally you would expect on-screen data from a security system..
- is this really a disney location, disney cameras?
- why is the camera holding so pathetically wobbly - wasn't s/he inside a room? Couldn't sit down and hold it steady and face on?
and the following specifics in first video:
- strange anomaly at about 10 seconds - why so bright?
- object looks human, but moves at strangely unrealistic speeds at times and also seems to have the wrong perspective (size) as it comes closer/ goes
- object seems even more blurry than rest of image, but hard to tell from the awful quality..
- vertical flares on object make no sense. (I'm assuming this is digital, not film (grin)..) Specifically, this is NOT sensor/monitor burn - it's
an effect caused either by an *awful* sensor + *awful* electronics (pixel-bleed), or an intervening piece of glass/plexi that is terribly
scratched/dirty. Or a combination thereof - some of it may be contributed by the taking camera, too. Clearly a certain level of brightness is
required to trigger the effect's visibilty - yet the 'ghost' seems not bright enough - plenty of other things are brighter yet cast no flares.
That suggests to me that it may be either CGI/post-processed, or we are seeing a reflected image of another monitor (behind the cameraman), showing
what is actually a much brighter image on *that* monitor, but dimmed by reflection. That would also explain why the figure's path doesn't match the
scene all that well, except for some of his travels.
FTR - no, you don't get 'ghost' images like *that* from file storage problems, slow shutter speeds, burnt-in monitors or sensors. If anyone needs
to know why that is, please ask (but don't expect a fast reply, from me anyway)...
And count me in - I agree that the debunking video is not particularly useful, sorry.
So, my verdict? I simply don't have one, but it smells really bad. Puzzling, but not paranormal, imo. Much more likely a hoax, but I'd love to
see some provenance... Has anyone managed to determine an original source, or is the rather obviously untalkative YT owner at that link, 'IT'?
Oh, and I don't see anything particularly interesting about video 2. Reflections and flares could easily explain that one (and there I do mostly
agree with the debunking vid).
Video 3? Too many problems here. Looks like bad CGI, or a cheap hologram effect that is part of the ride - has anyone been on that ride? Why on
earth would they have a single security camera pointed there, excluding much of the scene, and filimng (allegedly) a tester who looks like he's
pretty much just watching? Why did he suddenly stop filming - same q. for video 1..?
Given these are all very different scenes, how did this person come to gather them together, and yet seemingly not be able to document them better?
Like I said, I smell rat...
BTW, I TRUST you guys have all noticed that the videos are posted under...
"FILM AND ANIMATION.." "PEOPLE AND BLOGS" and "ENTERTAINMENT" ????
