I am sure there were a ton of threads about this footage in the past, or may still be current, but I just recently came across Todd Standing's video of when he was apparently reported missing and came back with bigfoot footage.  I only wanted to see what the truth about this is, if it was a proven hoax or if Standing is notorious for hoax's and what his reputation is in the "Unexplained-Mysteries.com" community. The face looks too good to be true, apart from the still shots. Thanks.

Use the "search" feature.  You'll get a pretty clear idea that Standing is a pariah.  Quite disreputable.

Ok, Todd Standing..........well?

I started not to post anything on this......person of questionable repute, but then I thought it might be a good idea. So, not too long ago, last year this time I was on another board and some of the people were talking about him and what they said was, shall we say, less than complimentary. Many of them seemed to know a great deal about him and a couple of Bigfoot groups had actually kicked him all the way out of their organizations. Now in and of itself that isn't too shocking, people fall out of favor with groups and organizations all the time for reasons that range from the absurd and ridiculous to serious and even illegal.

The thing that I have heard from several sources is it seems that old TS when Animal Planet was looking at doing a show on crypted investigations was one of the candidates they were looking at along with the BFRO and a couple others. My understanding is that during all this evaluation TS got really aggressive with the Assistant Producer, not physically but he started telling them he could do this and he could do that and he could deliver them shows that would blow the socks off anything they currently had being considered. Now, my knowledge of how this stuff all works is very limited and what I did get from one person who does have a sort of connection to the show was that there were a series of meetings in which TS began outlining in very general terms how he was going to be able to make these shows so great was that he was going to go off into some wilderness area, shoot segments of his encounter then piece them together with a crew to fill in the blanks and pass it off as something on the scale of "Mam Versus Wild" or "Survivor Man". So the proverbial SHTF when this Assistant Producer started asking questions about believably, factual presentation, separation of myths from reality and how he was going to have credibility if the show was a docu-drama on what he was supposed to have seen and experienced out on his own. TS's response was words to the effect of, 'You want a good show or what?".

Like I said, this is stuff I got from a variety of places and people, some of it might be accurate and some of it sort of makes me wonder, however most all his videos have been along this line. So, in my opinion, this guy is not a person I'd accept as a good source for anything. I think his videos are entertaining, but not something worth dwelling on as anything more than a really nice campfire story.

Thank you for the input.  He does seem to be separated from any "mainstream" or large bigfoot organizations, this is why I was unfamiliar with him.  So it seems he must be just like any other bigfoot investigator, less interested in proving the existence of the creature and more interested in money and a "good show".  At least he hasn't changed his name to Moneymaker...

I think the man very much overestimates himself.

He's a piece of work. Tried to get Bigfoot put on the endangered species list in Canada, I think.

His first work was shoddy and unimpressive, and his latest work appears to be staged models, AFAIK.

While googling Todd Standing, I found this...

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Moneymaker has never been even assumed in a Hoax.....

Not defending him, just saying, they are all the same to me actually.....Except, Moneymaker, as said, not a name you find around hoax's.....Actually, he usually calls them out, and / or stays away completeley.

I just think it would be very difficult to ever be taken seriously by anyone in the scientific community when you are a bigfoot hunter with the name Moneymaker.

I think I remember seeing Standing actually post on these forums.

If I recall, he was argumentitive, and when asked to post clear evidence he gave the old "I've got more important things to do that post on the Internet" standby.

I'm not sure why anyone would give this guy any sort of credibility. He's a loose cannon and is thought of as a pariah among most Bigfoot groups.
