The problem I noticed with every video I've ever watched is that its either so clear, that it has to be fake; or its so unclear that no real
conclusion can be drawn... at least, that's the prevailing attitude when I see people reacting to them. If this keeps going, we're essentially
dooming ourselves to a constant state of doubt.
That being said, I was pretty impressed by this video. As much as I want to believe it though, I'm not jumping on any bandwagon (believing or
disbelieving it). I really don't know. The eyes and facial features have to be some of the best I've ever seen. I remember reading someone
complaining that it was 'too human'. I, on the other hand, thought that that was one of the features that sold me on the video. Every other 'grey'
I've seen in a video has been so bland, generic, and lacking life that it screamed fake. In this one though, the creature actually has some character
to it, and the eye movement (which is the biggest seller for me) was pretty solid.
That being said, there are some things keeping me from preaching this one as the real deal. As good as the eyes looked, someone had pointed out (I
forget who) that it almost seemed like they tried too hard to get that part just right, and that kind of resonated with me. There's also the body
movement that almost looks "puppet-like" more so than CGI. The weight on the body just didn't seem right, as if his upper body was too light for his
Anyway... sadly, I'm sure nothing will come of this video, as much as I want it to.
ETA: As for the added projector sound, and 'why it was added', the same thing can be said about why the titling and everything else was added. It
was really just for 'effect' because the video is indeed being broadcast worldwide, so why not make it a bit more interesting by juicing it up some?
I'm sure this was done on some kind of budget editing software that had some preset sound effects in there that you can use to spruce up your video.
I mean, don't get me wrong, I realize its a completely unnecessary addition... I just don't think its something that should be considered when trying
to find out if this video is fake or not. Turning the sound down on your pc won't change the "evidence" in front of you, so I really don't think it
needs to be considered.
