The Munns Report Video Series
In the 4 years I’ve been analyzing the Patterson Gimlin Film (PGF), I’ve seen a lot of videos posted
on YouTube. Many were simply segments of some produced program, like my presentation at the Bigfoot Discovery Day event, or the American
Paranormal “Bigfoot” program which I was shown in.
Other videos were about my work, as interpreted by other people, some trying
in good faith to describe my effort correctly, some trying to discredit me. And I have seen many videos by others who offered their
own theories and claims about the film, and these ranged from thoughtful and valuable to utterly deranged and absurd.
But I cannot
deny that this media venue is becoming a powerful influence on many people’s perceptions of the PGF.
But what finally prompted
me to make my own videos was a growing dissatisfaction with commercial TV today, and the way programs are influenced by concern more
for visual graphics eye candy and simplistic claims, and worst of all, the apparent philosophy in “Reality TV” that reality is negotiable
and can be adjusted for a more viewer-pleasing program.
So I resigned myself to the fact that the best way to present my research
and analysis in my own form, and with my own words and ideas properly presented, was to take production and editorial control and
make my own videos. As my budget is currently limited, the YouTube venue became the most effective option at present.

This Video describes the features of my Bluff Creek 3D computer
site model, and my analysis of the filming event showing the creature subject and the cameraman both moving through the landscape
in real time, so you can see, for the first time, how the event actually occurred.
Video describes the event animation in detail, where I pause at various times to explain what is happening and how the film data determines
such, as Roger Patterson filmed this extraordinary event.
This video shows the 202
frames of trackway footage including a partial fifth footprint, and was rendered slightly slower than real time for greater
ease in analyzing the footprints and the terrain around them.
This video takes
a human female subject with a pose very similar to the Cibachrome 350 pose, for comparisons of anatomical proportion and the challenges
of making a costume which would replicate the PGF Subject, because of the PGF subject's unusual body proportions.
