In #ThursdayTapes 11 William Evans is a Sasquatch researcher who has been attempting to capture a family of Bigfoot on film. In 2007, Evans was working at a location in northern California. He is convinced that the creatures understand the dangers associated with a hand-held camera, so he has developed a method called dowsing, in which the camera is held at the hip. The baby Bigfoot video was taken with the camera located on his hip. The clip is short and apparently shows a baby Sasquatch hiding in the craw of a tree. It is claimed that two other Bigfoot are present in the video.

What to Look For

The video begins with William Evans walking towards a tree after witnessing a Bigfoot. The creature is unseen in the clip, but located next to the large tree. Evans then sees a baby figure located in the craw of a tree and pans the camera in on the object. By proportion, it is pretty big. When watching the video for the first time it is hard to identify the creature. Pause the clip at 1:12 and you can get a clear view of the baby’s face. It has its mouth open and the stick is covering a portion of the figures right eye. It is a short clip, as the filmmaker is said to have felt threatened.

William Evans captured the footage by using a process in which he travels through the thick forests until he feels an unusual presence. He then scans the woods with a hip cam. The video has been called the closest and clearest face shot of a Sasquatch available to the public. The baby Sasquatch shows a brow ridge, a human nose, gray knuckles, and no whites in the eyes. Similar to other Sasquatch videos, it appears to have a small coned head and gray skin on the face. In the clip, the figures eyes and mouth can be seen moving. Evans has claimed that two other creatures were present at the scene. It is hard to see, but a Bigfoot shaped creature may be in a nearby tree.

#ThursdayTapes 10

This is a great opportunity for me to thank all of the people at the Facebook Sasquatch research organization. Without strict analysis of the videos, it can be difficult to understand what is happening in many Sasquatch clips. On May 10, 2011, which is six day prior to writing this article, an interesting video was posted on YouTube with the title ‘Big Foot Siting Alaska’. The clip currently has 2,000 views, which is extremely low. Being so recently discovered, the footage has not been analyzed by a Sasquatch professional. The clip was uploaded with the description “I was on a logging road in Ketchikan, Alaska, hiking with my friend when I saw it!

Boy did my heart start racing!! It was about 40 yards from the road! I’m not sure if it knew I was there or not, because the noise of flowing water from the stream. It seemed to travel fast! It made my hair stand up!! At one point you can see a whitish yellow thing in its hand! I believe it was skunk cabbage. Not sure, but it is in bloom. You can see it jump and after that it just seems to disappear. There was a lot of brush and trees between it and I, I could not tell where it had gone. It was a scary sort of exciting feeling at the same time!! We went to search for tracks, but we found no prints. If there is a Bigfoot, Sasquatch, or Kushtaka, I swear I saw him!!

What to Look For

As the video starts, a large humanoid figure can be seen walking in the woods. It is hard to get a clear view in the beginning of the tape, but a coned head is evident at full speed. At 24 seconds in, the creature becomes clearly visible to the camera and has something white it its hand. However, the walking motion appears bizarre because its hands are raised, I can’t see the long arms. The figure has a uniform color and matted hair. In the best part of the video, the object can be seen entering a heavily brushed area. It disappears for about five seconds. You can see the object squat down and peak at the camera. The figure then makes a large leap down an embankment. The jump is truly a special moment in the footage.

Scale measurements of the scene have not been taken, but the data is important. After the leap is made, I can’t locate the creature, but comments on YouTube have directed me towards a pair of eyes that become visible for one second at 1:02 in the footage. The picture might be the best evidence without strict analysis of the objects motion. The figure is located in the center of the image towards the bottom of the screen. In the still, a set a huge eyes and a coned head are clearly visible. It is crazy how low to the ground the creature appears. The evidence is highly consistent with other Sasquatch clips that show how large the eyes are. It has also been suggested that the footage shows two separate Sasquatch, one in the beginning of the clip and a second Bigfoot getting up and performing the leap.

In #ThursdayTapes 9, Myakka City is an unincorporated community in southeastern Manatee County, Florida, United States. In May of 2008, a video was taken in Myakka City that shows a large humanoid creature. The footage was posted to YouTube under the title ‘Three clips of Sasquatch’. Each clip shows a different portion of a Bigfoot encounter. The tape is similar to other Sasquatch videos, but no full body image is ever captured. For this reason, along with the fact that the footage was not posted in one continuous segment, it raises immediate concerns over authenticity.

What to Look For

The video begins with a figure sitting on the ground behind a large tree. The creature is well aware of the human presence and is getting ready to flee the scene. The first clip captures the humanoid rising to its feet. It is an explosive motion and the creature doesn’t use its hands to get up. As the figure rises, a frame by frame analysis gives good detail of the objects palm and facial profile. The second clip shows the Bigfoot slowly walking away. At this point, it becomes suspicious that the filmmaker can’t keep the camera still. However, the examined footage confirms a Sasquatch profile on many levels.

The creature appears to perform a typical Bigfoot motion, walking with its palms backward and toes pointed down. It has an enormous gait, a coned head, and a 60% arm to body ratio. The hands are extremely long and show flexibility. They are also cupped, which is similar to other Sasquatch videos. The figure shows finger motion, has white palms, and displays a familiar hair ridge down the back. At one point in the film, the object’s hair can be seen transforming from black to brown as it hits the sun. The third clip shows the Bigfoot peaking around a tree and then walking away. The tree peaking and hiding behavior is highly consistent with Sasquatch encounters.

In #ThursdayTapes 8 A well known Sasquatch encounter was filmed in the U.S. state of Washington in 1996. It was captured by Lori Pate with a Hi-8mm video recorder. The clip is one of the most studied and scrutinized videos every taken. According to statements given by the witnesses, a series of loud vocalizations were heard for approximately five minutes prior to the figure being filmed running across the field. Before the clip begins, the humanoid was seen moving from the forest line to a position behind a large tree. Similar to other videos in this article, the slowed down analysis of the action is extremely important to help understand what is happening. It is not available on YouTube, but this included link has a clip with information provided by the Facebook Bigfoot organization.

What to Look For

The video starts with the camera panning in on a humanoid figure running across a large open wooded area. The creature appears to be moving at a fast speed and performs a large jump as it travels across the hill. A still image captured during the sequence is detailed. It shows a figure with a clear coned head, arms down to the knees, a brow ridge, gray hands and uniform black color. During the leap section of the video, it appears that the creature’s back leg performs a hyperextension of the foot, consistent with the mid-tarsal break and an animal that can pick objects up with its feet.

It appears that the humanoid has a compliant gait, with a bizarre looking walking motion. The compliant gait becomes visible when the objects front leg bends during a step. When people walk or run our front legs are straight. The figure runs with an up and down motion and displays some serious arm swinging. In the footage, the humanoid can be seen disappearing behind a hill for a short amount of time and then reemerging from the opposite side. It then continues to walk into the forest. A strange occurrence happens at this point in the clip. It seems that the figure’s size grows by a substantial amount as it enters the woods. With the enlarged video, many details of the last sequence become identifiable.

As soon as the hominoid is filmed emerging from behind the hill, it has a small object on its back, which appears to be a child. In a frame by frame analysis, the baby can be seen crawling up the larger creature’s back and standing on its shoulders, giving the original Bigfoot a taller appearance. The recovery of the child in the footage helps explain why the Sasquatch put itself at risk in open daylight. A recurring theme in many Bigfoot videos is the presence of a baby or family member. It has been determined that the figure in the Memorial Day footage is 5.3 feet tall.

#ThursdayTapes 7 shows a 2001 documentary; The Great North that was filmed in the IMAX format. The film is a representation of the famous Robert Flaherty documentary, Nanook of the North, which is a detailed account of the Inuit people who lived off the frigid landscape of the Arctic North. In Great North, Nanook’s grandson is the narrator. He takes the viewers on a great adventure through the rich majesty of the Canadian setting, along with the breathtaking and awesome landscape of the freezing, snow-covered environment. Great North looks at the long-standing traditions of the Inuit people, such as fishing and hunting.

The documentary was filmed near Inukjuak, on Hudson Bay in northern Quebec and also in Ontario. Great North has gained notoriety for a brief clip of an unexplained animal shown 9 minutes and 18 seconds into the film. The creature can be seen running alongside a herd of caribou as they flee up a steep hill. The animal appears to be a solid black color and has a gorilla like stride. The footage was filmed in Ontario, Canada, where gorillas and chimpanzees do not live. The video was captured with an advanced IMAX camera that has the capacity to record and display images at a far greater size and resolution than conventional film systems.

What to Look For

The scene in question shows footage of a great caribou migration. In the background of the shot, not far from where the caribou are running across a large stream, a black figure emerges from an unseen ditch and runs parallel to the ungulates for a short distance, before ducking down and disappearing from view. The creature can then be seen making a 90 degree turn to the left and traveling up the hill.

Similar to other Bigfoot videos, claims have been made that the original footage of the event has been suppressed from release. With the IMAX camera, it is possible to enlarge digital images with great clarity. Pictures of the creature could be produced with great precision, accuracy, and substantial detail. These images could then be shared with the public. However, the documentation of such evidence has not been released and may not suit the scientific world. Many different websites have identified the creature as a film crew member wearing a backpack who was discreetly positioned to direct the caribou herds. As the sun hits the figure, a much more detailed profile is made. As the creature drops out of sight, it can be seen touching the top of its head. The video remains controversial and could show a Sasquatch hunting for food in the great north.
