RE: Bigfoot
This is one extremely flawed analysis of the original Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot film by the professional SFX artist Bill Munns. I've listed some of the things I find wrong with it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...O8c38cRo#!

1. The picture of the human model (HM) and the screen capture of the Bigfoot were taken at different distances and angles, which causes scaling issues.
2. The HM, a woman who appears to have a long torso, is not going to have the same proportions of the man who is believed to have worn the suit.
3. The HM is standing erect, whereas the Bigfoot is slightly bent forward.
4. The image of the HM had to be manipulated in order for it to line up with the frame from the P-G film.
3. The hips of the HM and Bigfoot are angled differently, the latter being twisted away from the camera. This would obviously cause scaling issues because the hips and knees of Bigfoot would not line up with those of the HM. Plus, the hip angle makes the Bigfoot torso appear shorter and the arms longer.
4. The left leg of the HM is not at the same angle as Bigfoot.
5. Bill dismisses the idea of padded shoulders or arm extensions too easily. Padded shoulders would make the arms look much longer.
6. The heads of the HM and the Bigfoot are at different angles, the former facing towards the camera and the latter angled slightly away.

I'm surprised that a professional with decades of experience with camera angles and anatomy would make so many mistakes. Yet, people take what he says as gospel.
