Quite the courteous ghost, putting the seat back down.

I'm going to say that as a matter of personal opinion, the whole video feels rather staged. I vote no ghost.

One does not simply walk into Mordor.

Quite well put together, specially with the skull effect in the flashes of light. But who ever heard of a ghost having a pee and a crap? lol  
I bet he wouldnt view the scene from the opposite angle where we would see how he moves the toilet seat etc   This would be so easy to rig up but the view of the back of the toilet area is conveniently blocked. .  
It's a good fake :rolleyes:

Thank you Paul. I would not assume a video to be a fake without going through it frame by frame.
I would be interested to know how you got this effect though :)

I meant the skull effect. Maybe a projection?......As for the seat moving and the toilet being flushed, it is possible that smebody was hidiing behind the unit housing the sink because from the angle at which the video is shot, you cannot see the rear half of the toilet. I am sure you will put me right on both counts though lol :)

The skull was simply an added layer in my movie editing program - a picture of a skull dimmed so it was barely visible, inserted only in those sections where i was flashing the bathroom light.

The movement of the shower curtain was done by a fan - i simply plugged it in momentarily to get some movement.

All the other movement was actually done by me standing in the bathroom, in plain sight, in various positions. I digitally removed myself in post production.

Even the time stamp on the video is faked, and of course i inserted some sound effects from a sound effects CD.

I can't remember why i made this video. I think it was in response to another ghost video where somebody was saying it couldn't have been special effects. I was out to show them it COULD be special effects.

I hate fakers but I must say I'm impressed. I would have guessed the lid was moved with string, not a digitally removed guy.

Now that you mention it, it's kinda obvious it was tampered with. You can tell where you were removed from, the video just goes "dead" in those spots. Where the shower curtain was alive with pixel movement at one point, it goes to a still at another. Still, if you hadn't said that I may not have noticed it.

Thank you Paul for your explanation.  
What made me immediately suspicious about the video was the content. A ghost going to the toilet lol  Once I get suspicious I feel the urge to dig deeper.  Nice video though :)

I was going to say that you have a very unhygienic ghost:
  • Didn't use toilet paper
  • Didn't wash ghostly hands

:rofl:

wow over the top lol. The circa 1991 green crosshairs and border should have gave it away off the bat. Sounded to me like the ambient sound of the TV, you snoring and the cat were added to the video as well (among other obvious things lol).

The flashing red REC indicator is also a dead giveaway.  

Why would that appear on the final video?  It's only displayed on the viewfinder on video cameras so you can tell at a glance whether or not you're recording, it's not recorded as part of the video footage.
