Stabilized Patterson Bigfoot footage revealed

The most stable ever version of the infamous Patterson Bigfoot video has been released on YouTube.
The original footage was recorded in 1967 by Roger Patterson who, along with his friend Bob Gimlin, had been out in the woods near Bluff Creek to the north of Orleans in California.

As they rounded a corner they caught site of a strange creature crouched down a short distance away. When it stood up they noted that it appeared to be a tall bipedal ape-like hominid covered in dark hair.

Patterson quickly retrieved his camera from his pack and started to film the creature as it walked away. The 'Bigfoot' famously glanced back at the men before disappearing in to the trees, seemingly unmoved by their presence.

The resulting video is perhaps the single most famous piece of cryptozoological evidence ever recorded and would go on to spark controversy and debate for decades. While many believe that the video is nothing more than a clever hoax, there are still some who believe to this day that it is genuine.

This latest release of the footage, which has been carefully stabilized by M.K. Davis, provides the clearest view yet of the creature encountered by the two men almost 50 years ago.

It all sounds good, except for the Hollywood set director - or whatever he was (some dude into costumes for Hollywood movies) who said that such stretch costumes did not exist in those days and Patterson really could have made his fortune making such costumes, this one was so good. I really don't understand how folks can say that considering that the original Planet of the Apes and 2001 A Space Odyssey were of that same era of Hollywood costume making.

That explains why bigfoot sightings are so rare. They dress up in human suits to blend in.

Has nothing to do with Pattersons... And, it is a College Film Students Hoax. Obviously has nothing to do with the patterson film but if we are discussing bigfoot footage this one looks better than the patterson one to me, hoax or not.

We are not discussing bigfoot footage...The title is : Stabilized Patterson Bigfoot footage revealed You may want to start a new topic with the video you posted. Might get more discussion that way. And, welcome to UM.

I would really like to believe in Bigfoot but at the end of the day it seems like a camp fire hobby,giving middle to upper class men with a disposable income a good excuse to go out in the woods at night (or whenever) with lots of expensive gear. It seems to me at one time (if you believe all the old stories) perhaps there where creatures like Bigfoots out there and early explores may have had encounters with them. As for Hollywood Stan Winston said it was a guy in a suit. Others say no way.

And, welcome to UM. I read enough of the thread earlier in the night to get the gist of the topic. Thats why the video caught my eye when I opened you tube. I really figured after 7 pages you guys were running out of steam and was curious what everyone thought of this video. No need for me to make another thread, Big foot isnt a great interest of mine.

Not just 7 pages, but about 10 years of a broken record
