Well that's an interesting little video.
I will say, however, that folks are getting quite clever these days with video editing. A few years ago, there was this cleverly constructed gag -
Not all that amusing, really; at least not for the kid. The video, however, became a sensation. When I first saw it, my initial reaction was, "if it's fake, then it's done better than any of the cheesy CGI that hollywood throws at us."
Soon after the video was released, the story broke that this was a film project put together by three students at a school in Montreal. Again, it's well done, and I think that it takes a discerning eye to pick it apart, frame by frame.
There's also this, which I thought was another bit of well done trickery - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTCy7RAPOfU
Having said all this, if that video that is posted here on this site is the real deal, then it's the first I've seen of its kind. There are numerous video clips of the neanderthals; quick shots, of course. When Lloyd Pye was alive, he did remark that he was getting 200 or so good reports annually. If someone honestly did catch footage of one of the little people, then it's not surprising that it would be removed as soon as possible.
One of the interesting things about this particular video is that the 'little person' doesn't simply 'step out' from behind the tree in the spatial frame of reference. He appears almost to 'materialize'; like stepping out of an invisible doorway. It also appears that he steps 'down', as if stepping off a stair. It's also interesting in that he appears to be clad in clothing and carrying a case by his side (just seems like a 'he' to me). If this is a fake, then whomever did it obviously took the time to understand how it is that some of the little people dress. It's not just another 'mystical glowing fairy in the woods'.
Anyone able to translate the language being spoken by and between the young lady and the cameraman?
Daniel, if you wouldn't mind - what might be your take on this? If it's real, which of the LM's might it be?
