Feature Article
Original Haiti UFO vid hoaxer/poster comes clean....
".. Barzolff, Sam said, wished to remain anonymous, but he was prepared to share the full story of the videos. I agreed not to reveal his real name. Then I was all ears as Sam began parroting into the phone the words I could hear Barzolff saying in the background.
The 35-year-old Barzolff is a professional animator who attended one of the most prestigious art schools in France and has a decade of experience with computer graphics and commercial animation.
It took Barzolff a total of 17 hours to make both the Haiti and Dominican Republic videos. He did it all by himself using a MacBook Pro and a suite of commercially available 3-D animation programs, including Vue 6. The videos are 100% computer-generated.
The videos, he said, were intended as research for a feature film project he's been working on with Partizan, the France-based production company responsible for, among others, Michel Gondry's "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind."
When contacted to verify the story, "Eternal Sunshine" producer Georges Bermann said it was all true, and that Barzolff was "an absolute genius" who could "make anything look entirely real."
To prove that he was truly behind the videos, Barzolff agreed to provide the L.A. Times with a new spacecraft video. Called "Proof," the video depicts a small version of one of the spacecraft floating above a Paris street. As the camera pans over, the viewer sees two elderly women at a cafe, one of whom is holding a remote control device. Humorously, of course, this video makes use of computer graphics as well.
The movie Barzolff is working on for the big screen is about two guys who create a UFO hoax so realistic that it spirals out of their control. "For better or worse," said Barzolff, who cited being "overwhelmed" by the response to his video as one of the reasons he didn't want to go public with his name.
Barzolff stressed the videos were not intended as a viral marketing ploy. His movie is still in the idea phase, and he created the hoax strictly as a "sociological experiment" -- in other words, just to see what would happen.
What happened far exceeded his expectations.
After he finished producing the videos, he posted them and went to bed. "I thought they would reach perhaps 2,000 people," he said through Sam.
"When I woke up the next morning there were 70,000 views," on the Haiti video. "Twenty minutes later it was up to 130,000 views. It grew exponentially from there."
Barzolff called the results of his experiment "entertaining, thrilling, completely addictive, and a little scary."
The scary part, he said, was that in spite of the evidence, "many people refuse to believe it's a hoax."

What are we seeing here? Is it skillfully produced CGI effects over video, or is it the real deal? And would we ever really know the difference apart from someone coming forward recreating the videos...same location, etc...and demonstrating just how the hoax video was produced? Homemade videos are becoming remarkably well done and prolific, and with the sophisticated CGI programs available to just about anyone, should we be surprised? Either way, they cannot be ignored without a serious effort at investigation.

Thus far, email is running 10-1 in favor of this being CGI. What is remarkable is the level of uninformed audacity associated with the immediate, hands-down debunking. "That's a fake!" they write with total authority and cocky self-righteousness. So, who faked it?

What programs were used? We'd love to feature any such CGI achievement and give credit where credit it due -- these Haiti videos are quite a work of wizardry, if they are a fraud. Sadly, those who immediately debunk them have one thing in common: absolutely ZERO proof it is real OR fake. NONE. And, ironically, these people...some ufo researchers included...proclaim 'hoax' with the same knee-jerk reaction as professional debunkers do for legitimate UFO sightings.

If nothing else, the Haiti videos are an interesting exercise in holding the mirror up to the UFO community and watching so many of its members behave just like chronic debunkers -- no evidence, no proof, no inside knowledge whatsoever. Just research by proclamation.

The Haiti videos very well may be CGI...but real or fake, they're fascinating. The instant negative reaction of so many in the UFO community - without a shard of evidence - is perhaps the more interesting psychological issue at hand.

Furthermore, some who instantly debunk the Haiti videos, or any other credible-looking UFO videos, as being CGI fakes...actually then demand we agree with them and label the videos fakes...again, without a gram of evidence. Not a chance. What happened to open inquiry and serious analysis and in-depth investigation? Our job is not to pass judgement. Our commitment to our readers is to present the finest array of information in the world...that's called journalism. We will, as always, follow-up on controversial stories. How quickly people forget - even UFO researchers - about the tens of thousands of reports of ultra-credible individuals who are direct eyewitnesses to events every bit as breathtaking and dramatic as those shown in the Haitian videos but who don't happen to have a camcorder in hand. Even if they did, it is safe to assume they, too, would be smeared and accused of fakery by some ufo researchers who have forgotten the word 'research.' In the meantime, we'll continue to watch and report as we always have...and do our best to empower you, our readers, with the most interesting news on the planet.


To Whom I Hope It May Concern,
I've been a computer programmer in the graphics and games industry for over a decade. I am frequently amazed at what we can do with technology today. I am willing to believe that the two videos posted recently from Haiti and the Dominican Republic are CGI. It's really gotten that good!
However, the attached frame bothers me. Notice the palm in the left of the frame. It is half in shadow, and half out of shadow. This is believable since the UFO is blocking the sun from the viewers vantage point at this moment in time. In fact, at this time, it is just beginning to unblock the sun, so the upper portion would still be shadowed.
Believe me, I can envision techniques for producing the lens flares, halo glow, and lighting effects seen in most of the video. (Rest assured, they are not trivial and require some serious software and CGI professionals.) This one too, I could certainly imagine producing. I just can't imagine someone going to this much trouble for a single frame of video. Any glow effects would be much simpler (and still completely convincing) if they applied to the entire scene. Producing a partial shadow effect would be a lot of trouble. All for a single frame of video?

Are The Palm Trees Replicated 3D Models?
Professioanl Assessment Of Haiti UFO Video
From Glenn McCarthy
I am the owner of a post production video studio and a researcher of the sociological implications of extraterrestrial/dimensional visitations. My professional opinion of these two videos is as follows:
Most consumer cameras, particularly the ones shooting in 4x3 aspect, also shoot in interlaced frame DV in order to save tape. The UFO videos are interlaced and I can see no difference, i.e. aliasing or artifacting, between the UFOs field and the background.
Also, on the second video, it would be nearly impossible to shoot directly at the sun, particularly at dusk, and then superimpose a light refracting object without noticeable unaccountable variations of luminescence in the frame or obvious sings of a second layer.
Most amateurs, and even some professionals, don't know there is a difference in pixel shape from miniDV vs. computer CG but I cannot detect any difference in shape. This could be because the video was rendered in a very low res MPEG 4 so if the person who shot this would send me a copy of the tape I could tell for certain if it is a hoax.
When the UFO is directly overhead and the camera is shooting through palm fronds, both the UFO and the fronds go out of focus together. It would take a industry professional with very expensive equipment and dozens of hours of unpaid CG, much less location work, to create these images and even then I'm not sure it could be done at this quality. I have yet to experience new software and equipment that could fool my eyes to this degree.
On the sociological front, out of all the reactions I have seen on both questionable videos, as well as obvious fakes, the reaction of the camera person to the UFO is the most probable; a gasp and then silence. I find it harder to believe that a person with the talent and intelligence to pull of such a convincing hoax would waste such an enormous amount of their time and energy then to believe that we are alone in this galaxy.

Three Excellent CGI UFO Examples - Including The 'Drone'
From Larry
Here are some examples I have made of CGI UFOs in California (the so-called 'drone' -ed).
Feel free to link to them on your site.
If the Haiti videos are CG, someone had some time on their hands, and skill, plus access to some good software. 
The software used would range from 3D software to motion tracking software  (Boujou, PfTrack, or Matchmover). The previous software is used to  track footage and then insert CG elements into video so that it  matches the videos movement accurately. Then it's a matter of  masking skill, lighting and modeling to get the CG to match the  footage and thus create a desired realism. So, there are multiple  stages and skill sets required to make such a video.
Here are three examples of the so-called 'Drone' UFO:

Dear Rense.com,
I just viewed the Haiti and Dominican Republic UFO videos. I am a US Navy submarine nuclear power trained individual and hold a degree in Electronics Engineering Technology. I have over 14 years experience in the Semiconductor field and over 8 years experience in electrical power generation. I do NOT have any experience in video production so I will leave that to those who do. What I do have is an immense interest in UFOLOGY based on personal experience and time volunteered at the Roswell UFO museum in New Mexico. I have lived in New Mexico for 10 years and I have collected data for that long here and more while in several other states.
The reports on the CGI rendering of this film, especially from the Area51 folks on Livevideo.com are very convincing. In my own experience I find that sadly about 90 percent of everything I researched from "eyewitness" and "credible" source was either misinterpretation or a hoax. This means 10 percent was good data. (the data could not lead to an obvious or otherwise credible explanation which would rule out the possibility of human exotic technology or extraterrestrial technology) Bear in mind I am an amateur ufologist.
Again I said I am not a CGI or Video expert, but I do find a few aspects of both videos VERY INTERESTING.
From about 5 seconds to 10 seconds as the two craft are passing over the camera the shape and size of the craft are very visible. The "pods" for a lack of a better word house apparent nozzles. These nozzles give a glow which is brightest at the exterior and not the interior of the nozzles. The central "orb" is glowing brightly.(a possible power and or plasma source with the pods acting as a wave or plasma guide for thrust field generation in multiple vectors)
Until recently, the use of plasma energy to form powerful gravitic or magnetic waves for thrust was impossible. The newest high energy op amp and high gain transistors coupled with plasma technologies could create this effect. However, the ionization locally on the nozzles or in patterns revealing the fields of flux is not present. This may indicate a hoax or a new development in ion containment at the nozzle exhaust (the exhaust does not give thrust it is for plasma stability and by product disposal).
The "pods" appear similar in design to the plasma generation chambers of microprocessor fabrication equipment. The noise generated by the craft is odd as well and could represent the noise of a high energy plasma or magnetic field equipment interacting with the atmosphere for thrust. This could illustrate as a human exotic technology. The people of the Caribbean have for many years experienced "exotic" and not so exotic technology testing because it is easy to perform there with minimal exposure to a large and or technically connected population in many areas. (Ask the people of Puerto Rico for example)
This could explain the lack of response beyond a gasp by the camera operator and or people about. Why didn't other people come out and speak about it? Have you ever experienced the professional as well as public response of such a bold claim? Many people stay silent for fear of reprisal. If this video is authentic and if the people who shot it and witnessed it are willing, they should find a willing lab to test their persons, their camera, and any other item at the site for isotope residue. This residue forms due to plasma generation and must be cleaned from the inner chambers of wafer process equipment regularly to keep the tool "healthy". Note that most labs will not be willing unfortunately and we may never know.
Most of the film I admit seems a bit cheesy to me, however one bit does intrigue me. From about 9 seconds to 18 seconds we see another craft similar to those in the Dominican Republic film. It is not the craft that intrigues me. It is the dogs. The dogs barking. Plasma for the most part generates frequencies well above human hearing but dogs would hear it. While living in New Mexico for the last 10 years I have crewed for a balloon at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta for 7 years. I also crew for a balloon throughout the year to maintain proficient operational crewing skills. (I crew for the balloon I am not a pilot of a balloon) One complaint of many locals when we fly over populated areas is the noise of our flames when we heat the balloon for lift during normal flight. This noise along with our presence in the sky creates one other disturbance... DOGS. Dogs blocks away from us and in all directions run in their yards and out of their doggy doors if they have them and BARK AT US! That experience is what I heard in this film... VERY INTERESTING. Coincidence... maybe. These seem very interesting to me and I hope some serious UFOLOGISTS will follow this up. If these are hoaxes, as many are unfortunately, they are well researched and well done for details. If not, then we see either a new toy for those pesky flyboys, or an object no pilot will report if they want to keep their job.
Thanks RENSE.COM, for having this open for comment and discussion. I am currently starting a new job where my reputation is very important so I ask you do NOT reveal my name. If you feel this is printable, I agree to your posting it so long as any edit, if performed, does NOT detract from the explanation of the technologies discussed or the operations that may explain the objects. Thank you in advance for your consideration and respect of my submission.
