Wow... this video tripped me out, but it had NOTHING to do with the alleged poltergeist activity.

The guy making the videos is also a professional photographer and, I would assume, is very well versed in editing and taping/photographing areas from certain angles to get a certain look. If someone were to make a convincing fake, I would think he would have the resources, both mentally and physically, to do it.

The problem with trusting anything you see on youtube is that you don't know the people who are posting them, and too many people automatically assume that the person posting the video is trustworthy. The fact is, there are very many ways a person with video/photography experience could make these videos in a convincing way. The other sad fact is that a lot of people would find no problem duping a few for self satisfaction. Even more so if that duping brings them some sort of notoriety. . .notoriety that probably wouldn't hurt somebody that teaches photography classes for $400+ a day, and whose photography channel certainly hasn't suffered as a result of the extra traffic coming through on the poltergeist channel.

This guy's been on the wire in the past, and some have debunked him pretty well. But he keeps going.

Not obviously fake,.  It could reasonably be fake.  

that's different from obvious.  But it could be also real.

But it may not be, if all reasonable things are considered.

but it could be.

I watched about 20 of his youtube vids, and alot are hard to discredit. I think if it is fake, he put a hell of alot of effort and time into covering his tracks, and if it's real, that is one p****d off entity.

In one video a picture gets smashed. It's glass covering gets broken and some of it crashes to the floor, plus there are phones he has which are throne on the floor.
Another video has a bookcase falling to the floor, you do see the contents fall out, but it stops recording apparently, then he edited together another clip after showing the contents on the floor with the shelves broken too.

It's interesting, some of it is hard to swallow though.
Ok.. I missed those. That makes it a little more credible, but I still don't buy it.  There was that other guy filming stuff on youtube last year who finally got caught faking his videos. He shot one too many and someone figured it out.  Maybe that is what will happen here.  I mean... that tv shaking back and forth just looks so fake. A ghost/poltergeist isn't going to do that... at least not any that I have seen.  They usually make loud noises, throw things, or slam them.  Not rock them back and forth. It reminded me of a Van Halen concert I was at and Roth kept jumping up on this huge speaker and kicking and you would think it was about to fall, but then you saw a string or wire holding it. I don't know... these things are hard to swallow.  You know what I mean?

I don't know about this one.  You would think the bird would be more freaked out.  Why is the clock so important to show more than the actual activity?  Show the clock once, then steady on the anomally, then go back to the clock...Better yet, turn the time/date display on your camera so you don't have to continuously show the clock.  I just don't know about this one.  (The TV is impressive, though if it is faked)

meh... I doubt very much that this is genuine. When he tries to justify that he isn't "causing the problem" you will notice at a couple of key points where the image completely blacks out. These may be key-frames where the videographer is stopping the camera, making a change, and continuing as though nothing occurred. For those that think the video is genuine, Im not saying it isn't, but I do find it very suspicious.

Hmm he has to show more for me to believe it. BTW with the clock you should have been looking at the temperature. it was going down at a quick rate.

So, I've been watching all this guy's videos he has posted and I came across this one. I have no clue when it comes to camera or video tricks. Will one of you brainy photo experts explain and/or debunk this one? This is not a challenge because I believe it's legit. I am simply curious as to how this guy did this. Thanks!

This is not impossible to fake, take the clock out of a very warm environment and put it in an air conditioned room and you will see this happen...
Im not going to say its fake, but it's definitely not proof.

What is this?

Hi Pan, when watching the tv bounce, there are a number of ways this can be achieved, all of which the person with the camera tried to disprove. Just like in the movies, when a director attempts a similar effect, this can be achieved in a few different ways, but all ways achieve the same end result...a believable perception that what is happening is true. One way is with "takes"...attempt the shot from multiple angles. For each angle, have a way of hiding the ability to move the object. When editing the video, choose points in the video where the viewer will not notice splice points, for instance in this video, the screen goes black for only short periods of time... but that is all that is needed to put two different shots together. A good editing software likely won't even need transition points, but is suggested for realism. The key to the illusion is not so much in taking the video as it is in the editing. Fishing line on the tv, or wooden dowels under the tv pushing up from the basement are the most likely ways of achieving this...or a combination of both when the videographer is trying to show the audience that this video isn't fake. Hope this helps a bit.
