Thanks OP, S & F.
I just finished watching the entire 2+ hour video (sans popcorn, + a snifter of single malt whiskey) ... and before you read on ... let me proclaim
that i am a SKEPTIC (who happens to be bored on a saturday night ... yes, i know, cue the laughter)
Even though i'm a skeptic, I've been a UFO junkie for most of my 30 years on this planet (and an ATS lurker for the past year)... i am a former
physics major and total science geek ... i understand this stuff and i don't believe anything i see w/o questioning it and running up the ladder of
i must say, that regardless of what folks think of Lazar, this video seems far too low budget and far too legit to be faked.
in saying that -- i mean this: all of the folks who are interviewed, and speak in depth (many, with corroboarating stories), are NOT actors, they're
"Average Joe's"... Lazar for instance ... There is no way this guy is an actor, and i strongly doubt he's a fraud. He's too consistent, his demeanor
is genuine and his inflections and body language are completely legit -- that is, in my professional, television based opinion.
I work for a MAJOR cable entertainment media company in the digital production side of things, (a company you're all familiar with, but that wouldn't
be considered MSM, ie, FOX NBC, ABC, CBS, BBC, etc...) ... i have been producing news-type video content for years. i know, for a fact, that per
1000 streams, across any website or medium, a video is worth only about $30USD in ad sales ... so lets do some math ... $30USD x 38K views = $1140 .
NOW ... take that same $1140 and optimistically assume that since there were 5 (or 6, i lost count) ads throughout the presentation ... the total
revenue on the video (original content shot 20 years ago, mind you), is $6840. So a video that was uploaded to youtube 6 weeks has only taken in that
small amount of revenue (minus the BIG cut youtube itself takes). Either way, it's a bad investment if you ask me. Unless of course ... it is
Either way, VIDEO CONTENT COSTS TIME AND/OR MONEY ..... #FACT!!!! This stuff doesn't just magically materialize, like many people think... would you
blow 5 days of shooting footage and an editor on something fake and that doesn't even score a profitable amount of hits? I sure as h3ll wouldn't ...
unless its totally legit.
p.s. i think some of these images of area 51 UFO's, sketches, and alleged first hand accounts in this video are simply mind blowing. really awesome,
i encourage all to watch this.
