Redwoods Footage - A closer Look

Several days ago we posted a story about the famous Redwood Footage/The Playboy Footage and I thought I would take a closer look at the video.

I had never really looked at the footage very much and I had never attempted to gather more information from the video. This post will probably be kind of short and will include a short video I did of the footage. I attempted to bring out some detail on the figure but the footage quality is pretty poor.

Here is my video enhancement/analysis of the footage.

As you can see the footage is really low quality and there is not a lot you can do to improve it. I think it is obvious that I'm not 100 percent sold on the footage being authentic. There are many red flags and questions I have about it. If there is a higher-quality video, I'd like to see it. 

If this is a real bigfoot, then it exhibited some very unusual behavior. It stands still in front of screaming people, and in front of car/RV headlights. It doesn't seem to be in a hurry to get out of sight.

Another thing I noticed is that at times the figure looks like someone wearing a baggy suit. But again, the resolution of the video is very poor and this can create video artifacts. 

The backstory as to how the footage was obtained sounds believable, I guess. But once you watch the complete video with all the "That's a bear!", "No it's on 2 legs" and the screaming, it just gives off a staged vibe to me. 

I was about 50/50 on the footage but after thinking about it more I would say I'm now more 75/25 to it being staged. As I stated I have never really taken a lot of time to "investigate" this video or the story very much until just a few days ago. Yes, I had seen the video before and heard about it but I just never took the time to dig into it. 

What do you think? Is there a better copy of the video out there? I mean, who knew production cameras in 1995 were so bad?

Anyways, that is my little look at this somewhat interesting video.

  1. What do I think? Most of the readers know that the species is real, yet still is an "unknown cryptid". New good photo and video evidence of the species is good, is energizing, and in some cases may make us realize the species is present in areas we had previously never known it to be. But until the anthropologists and zoologists have a specimen to classify, we will continue spinning the wheels forever of what is perhaps the most fascinating and perplexing earthly what-is-it mystery ever.
