I've personally always believed that the Patterson/Gimlin footage was authentic.  The way the creature walked and moved, the musculature visible underneath the hair, the breasts that were seen and the other physiological and anatomical details captured in this film, clearly shows that this wasn't a faked event created by a human in a costume.

Many posters will probably respond to this thread and claim that this footage has already been debunked as a hoax, but that would be completely untrue.  This sighting has never been solved conclusively and that is fact.

In regards to the conclusions that are presented in these videos, I do find (at times) this person is grasping a bit to assert his conclusions. However and overall, this person's analysis of the subtle details that's he's taken the time to enhance, show very good detail enhancements that likely were overlooked by many in the original footage.

Another point of contention is this; it's incredulous and somewhat laughable that so many 'armchair' critics of the film weren't even born close to the time this footage was taken.  This footage was captured in the late 60's and at that time, even the best Hollywood costumes created to replicate an ape or gorilla were extremely poor and limited.  Today, we'd have a hard time duplicating the creature shown in this film with current costume, makeup and prosthetics.  I find that many of those criticizing this film are too young and can't make an educated judgement.  The younger generation can't relate to or get past the fact that CGI wasn't available then and that even elaborate and expensive costumes couldn't replicate what was seen in this footage in 1967.

Anyway, on to the videos and for anyone who hasn't seen these already:





Although this footage is very old now, it's still some of the best evidence we have showing the creature's existence.  I don't think anyone will ever be able to prove this case is a hoax.  If this is indeed real footage of a sasquatch, then it is one of the most remarkable film evidence proving this creature's existence.

Here's a bigfoot costume that was created and used nearly 10 years after the Patterson film and for TV. Even a child should be able to see the differences between a costume like this and what was seen in the Patterson/Gimlin footage.

That's very convenient of them. We need more hoaxers like that.

It's never been conclusively proved to be a fake and who is "they"?  Rather than listening to explanations by questionable sources, use your eyes man!

Makes me wonder actually if bigfoot debunkers have a predisposition for vision problems. LOL

Well, I have to ask, what are they hoping to find in this two dozenth (not a word but seemed appropriate) examination that's been missed by everyone else?

"They" are trying to dispel the myth that this film footage was ever debunked and by deconstructing each movement through enhanced video.   Through more detailed analysis and closer scrutiny of the film,  'they" are providing further evidence that this film was most assuredly not a hoax.

Roger Patterson and Gimlin. it was a documentary on the bbc few years ago and talk about how they made the costume and the camera work.
