Still Frame Capture from Todd Standing Video.

First, let me be very clear this is NOT a photo that was taken by Todd Standing. According to his video, it was sent to him and he has been invited to the area.

While I did not watch all of Standing's video, I will link it below, I watched enough to get a little of the brief story he told. That being,the photo was submitted to him and he is invited to this area to view Sasquatch.

As most of you probably know, Standing released a documentary entitled Discovering Bigfoot back several months ago. It, for the most part, has been met with good reviews, although their are many who dispute the documentary and his evidence.

Below is the link to his video, with the above picture, followed by some close up of the figure in the picture, along with some thoughts about it.

A few days ago I was introduced to a Youtube channel of someone creating CGI Bigfoot. They are not creating these for a hoax, but for fun and to hone their skills. They are also using their talent to enhance and re-create other videos.

CGI means computer-generated imagery or special visual effects created using computer software. We see this type of thing in almost every film we watch nowadays. The technology is getting better and better and it is getting harder to tell when something is CGI or real.

There are only a few videos on this guy's channel but I think some of them are very good work. It is the type of thing you might see in a promo for a Bigfoot TV show or something used in a documentary film.

Lets take a look at one of the videos
I was alerted to a document that for all intents and purposes, attempts to expose Todd Standing as nothing more than a fraud out to fool people and make money. While I don't personally have any vendetta against Standing, I also don't perceive his content to be that of real Bigfoot.

So, I decided to take a more serious look at the content within the document and see if any of it checked out. Many of the items in the document linked to some type of source that seemed to confirm statements within said document.

Below is some of my efforts to gain more information. I will try to explain why some things are important.

Long before Todd Standing's film, Discovering Bigfoot, came out he was somewhat of a controversial figure in the bigfoot community. Now, that his film is out and it is fairly popular, the debate about the evidence he presents has once again become a hot topic.  Many people think his variety of Sasquatch are real while others think it is just a hoax. Most of what is in the film has been available to view for a number of years. But it was all packaged with some new footage and formed into a documentary.

The film does have a couple of very well respected names attached to it. Namely, John Bindernagel, and Jeffrey Meldrum. Both are heavily respected in the filed of bigfoot and having them on board for the film is a major drawing point.

Of course, there are many who are still questioning and doubting the Standing film and footage.
Still frame from Standing's film "Discovering Bigfoot"
Controversial bigfoot researcher Todd Standing is back and has released a film entitled"Discovering Bigfoot". He has also filed a civil lawsuit against the British Columbia Ministry of Environment
and British Columbia Fish and Wildlife and hopes to prove the existence of bigfoot in court.

Today, I want to talk more about the film and particularly this still frame above and not really talk about the lawsuit.

I also must be clear that I have not actually seen the film and have only seen a few shorts clips from it. With that said I want to offer my opinion on what I've seen and the still frame above.

Okay, so today I just surfing around the internet ....just looking for something cool I might want to share..and I ran across a set of videos on youtube. These videos are supposedly the "The clearest images of bigfoot ever".  So, Let have a look

Video 1

Okay, so I'm sure you know that almost all of the pictures presented in video 1 are confirmed fakes. One of the pictures belongs to Jeff Yelek, it is the exception in this video presentation. We actually featured a post and a video with Jeff and Theresa Yelek, you can find it by Clicking Here.
The Yelek Bigfoot photo is very interesting. It was taken in Colorado, best I can remember. 
Now on to video 2

Okay, there are some I have not seen before and there are some repeats from video 1. A couple of the pictures are from movies and then one is from Todd Standing....so meh on that.

Now lets look at video 3

Again, a couple interesting ones and then several known fakes. I think part of the problem with trying to convince people that bigfoot is an actual living breathing creature is the fact that there are just so many fakes out there. But this could be the plan, to flood the field with hoaxes and fakes to keep the majority of people from taking the subject seriously. To make people doubt the REAL pictures and videos of bigfoot.

So, what do you think about some of the pictures presented in the videos? Are there any you like and think may be real ? If so let us know.

Bad Bigfoot
I thought I would take just a little time today and write a short post about some bad Bigfoot picture and costumes.

A bad Bigfoot image can from a wide range of sources. From the low budget costume makers to the cheesy low budget horror movie to the serial and/or casual hoaxer.  Lets take a look at some of these bad Bigfoots!

Well, this Bigfoot looks happy! Maybe it's because it finally found a pair of shoe that fit. No more sore feet. This is not from a hoax or anything but a print that you can purchase. I was going to link to the site but it appears to have a virus ....so can't do it.

This Bigfoot is not a terrible effort considering it is made out of wigs from Wal-mart, but I have seen much better from Mark Cline. For those who don't know, Mark has been making stuff like this for years. Stuff like a giant 50 foot tall dinosaurs and Foamhenge. Foamhenge is a Stone henge replica made out of of ...you guessed it ...Foam.   
Mark has a roadside attraction located in Natural Bridge, VA.
Check out his youtube video Hunt Bigfoot with a Redneck to see this Bigfoot in action.

I don't know much about this one. The body looks decent but the big mouth and fangs are pretty wild. Hey, maybe it is a Bigfoot Vampire?  What I do know about it is that it is from the film Night Claws starring Frank Stallone.  It was shot in Mobile, AL back in 2001. It was another "Killer Bigfoot" movie.  Why is it most Bigfoot movies show Bigfoot as a crazed killer? ...Bigfoot needs a better agent.


This photo was presented by none other than Rick Dyer. I think it was taken while he was on an expedition in Florida.  Best I can remember, Dyer claimed that someone hoaxed him by dressing up in a suit. 

Again, don't know much about this Bigfoot but he has the David Letterman teeth and looks a bit "slow", if you know what I mean.  Could this be from a movie ....if so I'm hoping it was a comedy.

Bad movie Bigfoot. I think this is from the movie Suburban Sasquatch. Its your typical "the beast is on a blood thirsty rampage" movie. Arms and legs getting ripped off ....but hey that might be your thing.

Maybe the worst looking Bigfoot in the movies. Curse of Bigfoot - this is a terrible attempt at creating a Bigfoot creature but hey it was made back in like the 70's and it was a mummified Bigfoot ...so maybe we can overlook it. If you are so inclined you can watch the film for Free by Clicking Here.

Now, don't tell me you have seen Bigfoot up close and have been interacting with them and then tell me this glass eyed monster from Todd Standing is real. This Bigfoot has that far way look in his eyes, that blank stare ....maybe it's over medicated?  ..Staring contest ...GO!   

So, there you have it. Some of my picks for the "Bad Bigfoot" club. Please don't take it too seriously this post is meant to be somewhat lighthearted. I'm sure if you look around you can find some better than these.

Bigfoot for entertainment is fine, just be upfront about it, but hoaxing, lying and being dishonest just to make money is not acceptable to most people.

Of course any serious researcher who takes the subject seriously, needs funding and support but never be dishonest or pull hoaxes just to get funding, it only hurts the rest of us and the field in general.

Looks like the Todd Standing hoax has been exposed (again). First it's his silly looking, glassed eyed bigfoot that Sweaty Yeti at Bigfoot Forums has proven to have been photoshopped (See above photo) and now his other bigfoot photo, which most people loved, has been debunked by Para Breakdown in the video below.  A very good effort from Sweaty Yeti and Para Phil. Nice job guys!

(If for some reason this video does not play Click Here! )
Now, this was all starting to get a big following despite what anyone could shows or say about Standing's history and background. It all had a smell of the Rick Dyer hoax, it's about the money. The fact Todd and his sister, Louise Standing own a production company and many other warning signs pointed out by Steve Kulls, made no difference in a lot of peoples minds. They would say "oh but he is teamed up with Les Stroud", well, if Les is truly interested in Bigfoot he could not have chosen a worse person to team up with.

Bigfoot and Les Stroud

This is a guest post by Gordon Ambrose from The discerning man's squatch. Stop by his facebook page and give it a like. Gordon is a bigfoot enthusiast who employs critical thinking when looking at bigfoot evidence.

Les Stroud, More Credibility

For years I have enjoyed Les Stroud and his Survivor Man series. I live in a wooded area and love the Rocky Mountains which are literally my back yard, so any show that takes us into the boscage and teaches us how to use what is there to survive and then make it out again, has always had a place close to my heart.

Les is the only one I know of who actually does ...all of his own camera work and it is no easy task considering what he takes on. He goes solo, and with the immensely painstaking process of setting up his multiple cameras, hiking away from them sometimes thousands of yards over steep terrain to record his progression, then, once satisfied backtracking just as perilously to pick up his cameras and do it all over again. He shows more integrity and commitment to his show and skills than any other survivor type program I have seen. Quite frankly I personally would find it a real drag to make progress on a torturous trail that could take my life and then be forced to go back, grab my gear so I can set up for the next leg. Thankfully he does it all for us and with a smile.

You might wonder why he does this (solo) and the answer is, he is showing us true survivor skills with the same resources we would have if lost in the woods. He does not have the luxury of having a camera man, who would have rations and a long distance communicator as well as just a helping hand in any emergency… and that is the whole point of the show. He in fact is taking real risks with his own life and I have sometimes feared that one day we will read in the papers that he never made it back from filming one of his episodes. He is for real and he is really putting himself out there.

It is with my great pleasure that we have a two part special on the Science Channel that has been given the go ahead that takes on two of my favorite subjects. Surviving in the wilderness…and Bigfoot. The episodes titled Survivorman: Stalking Sasquatch, will take us the viewer, on a precarious journey with Les as he goes in search of the wild man of the woods with plenty of high quality cameras in tow.

We can expect to see the same kind of dangerous terrain that he usually undertakes, but instead of focusing on getting out, he will be focusing on going big. As in Bigfoot. A quote from the Hollywood reporter: “Stroud goes deep into the territory of the infamous Bigfoot to survive with few supplies and even fewer rations, "smack dab in the middle of the monster’s hotspots." He also will delve into the truth behind the legend as he investigates the whereabouts of this infamous creature."

The fellow known lovingly as Survivor Man has on at least two instances given his take on the legend of Bigfoot and has had relayed some personal experiences that indicate that he believes there may be some truth to this creature. Here is a man that knows what it is like being as remote as possible on the outskirts of where humanity dare not go and has impeccable knowledge of the flora and fauna. If anyone has a chance of having an eyewitness encounter with Sasquatch and then being credible in his report, it is Les and quite literally in his minimalism approach, Les is more.

For me it is a win-win situation as I love his show anyway, but with him keeping an ever keen eye out and camera for something that will bring us closer to an age old question, I find that this special will be extra special… for anyone with an interest in Sasquatch.
Show is set to premier the first quarter of 2014
Ready, set…Bigfoot!

Still Frame from Todd Standings video 
I thought  I'd give a little update about Todd Standing. The above photo is a still frame grab from one of Todd's videos. There is other close up face shots of reported bigfoot in some of Todd's videos, while most people have dismissed the face shots as being fake, the part of the video where you seen this creature, in the photo above, duck down is pretty interesting but not without some controversy. The controversy comes from Todd's sister from what I've heard, that she claims it was all fake, but in any case I have zoomed in on the figure and you can make up your own mind about it.

As for the face shots from Todd, I personally think they are not real, but with that said I do think Todd has had some real sightings and encounters. Todd is still somewhat of a controversial person in the bigfoot community but I have found him to be rather nice and not seen him bash on anyone.

So where is Todd now? Well, over the last year or so it has been kind of quiet for Todd. The only thing I have really seen him on is the Finding Bigfoot show and that didn't go very well. The whole story about what went down on the show goes much deeper than what was shown, I have been told about some of it and it wasn't good. If Todd would like to make it public record he is welcome to contact me.

Todd is currently working here in the United States with Albert Fuhs. Albert had seen Todd on the Finding Bigfoot TV show and felt like Todd had some real encounters, Albert started trying to contact Todd. So the two finally got together and are currently recording and researching in Albert's area.
I know Albert a little and have found some of his videos and photos to be very good and he seems like a very nice guy.

From what I understand Albert, Todd and another more famous person, that I will not name, are working on a documentary film in this area. I do not know when it will be released but I will try to keep everyone posted. They are using some of the best HD cameras available from what I am told and that the footage will be ground breaking. It has already been a lengthy process from my understanding but that their methods are working and they are getting closer to the bigfoots.

It is my understanding that Albert has been researching this area for some time now but he had limited time and equipment, now with Todd's involvement he has much better equipment and some help.
Over time Albert has been able to get closer to these bigfoot and now with Todd in the mix they hope to produce some of the very best bigfoot video footage ever seen.

I really feel like Albert has an outstanding area for research and look forward to what him and Todd produce. I wish them the best of luck in their quest.

This video was filmed by Albert Fuhs. This is an ongoing research area and project for Albert. He now has better equipment and is working on a film with some other people and hopes to release it later this year.
I have seen other photos and videos from Albert's research and some of them are amazing.

I thank Albert for sharing this video with me and allowing me to share it with everyone.

While some may say this is nothing, I think it is real sasquatch bases on what Albert has told me and on several other photos I have seen from the same area.

In the future I hope be able to share more of Albert's research with everyone.

Could this be a bigfoot watching from the tree line? (Slightly left of center)

This picture of a possible bigfoot comes to us from Albert Fuhs. It was taken a long times ago, Albert now has much better equipment and is currently working on a film with Todd Standing. Albert say he knows this photo is not very good but says it is a real sasquatch. Albert estimates the height of this sasquatch at about 8 foot tall.

Here is a zoomed and enhanced version of the above photo.

You can see what appears to be a figure.

At this time there is no set date for the release of the upcoming film by Albert and Todd, but I will pass along anything I find out.

Last Night on the Finding Bigfoot TV show they featured Todd Standing and one of his videos and  all the cast basically agreed that the footage was fake and/or hoax...well except the lovable BOBO, he said it was a Squatch...but the others were not convinced. The show also told how Todd has a bad reputation among many bigfoot researchers and said his stories was kind of out there.

Well Todd Standing has now made a statement about the show and he tells quite a different story about what really happened while filming the show.

Here is what Todd said -
"I just wanted to make this clear. I offered all of the cast from "Finding Bigfoot" the opportunity to go into my research site. They refused and cannot. They will not film more then 500 yards from a road. Matt is an out of shape smoker that cannot hike up hills and Bobo has perminently injured his feet working as a commercial fisherman. I only gave them permission to use Video 2 because it is ...public anyway and i did not trust them when they refused to take or acknowledge my physical evidence( hair and scatt from bigfoot). That alone who have proved even to Renee that it could not be a man in a suit, unless i can fake DNA. I was deceived by them from begining to end. The day of the shoot i called them all on what a bullshit production they where playing. Their production company is call "Snake oil productions" and they lived up to their name. It was a very important lesson i had to learn and i am glad it's over. Bobo has appologized to me and explained his postion."

Thats right folks.... Todd said Matt Moneymaker is" an out of shape smoker that can't not hike up hills"  well if that is the case he will have a hard time finding a bigfoot.
I'm not a big fan of Matt Moneymaker and I find many times I do not agree with him..but when it comes to Todd Standing I fine it rather easy to agree with him. I think at one point Todd had a real sighting but the photos he has release in the past appear to be very fake. 
Will the Finding Bigfoot crew take a stab back at Todd or will they fold up shop like Bobo and Apologize to him....Time will tell I guess.

Happy Bigfootin'

TCC - I normally Don't do any post on or about Todd Standing but I find his ripping of Finding Bigfoot TV show and it's producers kind of note worthy. Todd is widely known for his Clear pictures of Bigfoot. Many researchers say they are fake and it appears the TV show Finding Bigfoot agrees they are fake. So Todd Standing rips into them.I enjoyed his comments.

Here is what he had to say.-
Todd Standing - "
Well congrats to the "Finding Bigfoot' team and producers. After being on hundreds of newspaper, radio and tv interviews and shows, the finding bigfoot production is the worst I have EVER seen. Their production company is Called"Snake oil productions" for a reason. They have no intention of finding bigfoot and they couldn't possiblly be stupid enough to believe they could. They literally filme...d me in a spot they choose where cows are grazing all around. And they couldn't even sneek up on the cows! That is what the morons are hearing "in the Candian wilds" that they cannot identify. They are right when they say it is not coyotes making that sound. Its cows they are hearing. That is what happens when you go bigfoot hunting by a ranch you idiots. I could right a list of 500 reasons these people will never film a deaf three legged moose in live action. Never mind Bigfoot.
Here is a link to a good tv show that did a real piece on my bigfoot work.
