In the interest of being rational and sceptical I have to say Occams razor says not..but who knows?
While watching a great science documentary called 'What we still don't know' something very odd caught my eye.
I was watching Lynn Rothschild speak about alien life, she is sat on a walkway under a row of stone columns. Behind her to the left of the picture a
cyclist appears on the road, heres the odd bit, he appears as if by magic from behind the second column from the left and cycles off screen, exit
stage left then, nothing odd about that you should think until you realise he is cycling backwards, completely in reverse, an impossible act.
here's the link www.youtube.com...
The video is 9 min. 25 sec long. He appears at the 6 min. 55 sec. mark.
Impossible in reality, maybe, but not on video. That would be quite easy to do considering the fixed camera. I'm not saying that your analysis is
necessarily wrong, I'm just saying that this is an easy camera trick. And considering the "uncertainty" topic of the video, I'd say it's even
more likely that it's just there to spark interest.
Dude,,,WTF. Please tell me that this vid has been doctored. I've tried real hard to see if I can see some sort of evidence of BS.I've seen some wild
stuff,,,but this (seriously) has got to be a hoax.I'll just hold on a little while for the rest of the crew to chime in,,,but I'm leaning with hoax.
Still gets a S& F though
my own opinion is that the editors where having a bit of fun with final cut pro or some such software.
The idea that it is there to give 'interest' I do not find convincing with all due respect: the documentary is already interesting, so is Lynn
Rothschild, so some other reason then I'd say.
Odd find though I thought.
Very odd, but it's pretty obvious, and makes me wonder why no one would catch it in editing and either confront it, or edit it out. Makes me think
it's there on purpose, though not sure what they would be trying to convey there.
Maybe in reference to the subject matter...
I think Grindhouzer nailed it. The bike scence was filmed at a brighter time in the day. They did a better job of blending the shadows as the bike
enters the screen than after the bike leaves the screen.
I am calling it a post production effect. The positioning and lighting of the lady is sitting in the chair is slightly different to the background. If
I had the original video should be able to find some pixel artefacts / bleeding between the lady and the background to confirm it.
I think the bicycle rider is wearing clothes from the past and carrying
a bag? I heard the bicycle bell before he rode into the picture.
(Backwards). Strange indeed.
Just looked at it again.......It might just be a European country hence
the clothes from the past and them riding differently than we do
(Just kidding), still doesn't explain riding backwards though..........
