    Greetings! (Ghost of Fort's Introductory Thread)

    Greetings - I think I know you from another forum. The mods are friendly, so don't hesitate to ask questions (though don't mention "The War" as so astutely noted by the fine hotelier Basil Fawlty!)

    Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film

    Some few pages back, there was a post indicating that different sites claimed it was super 8 or 16, and I thought I'd weigh in. I guess I needn't have bothered.

    Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film

    In case anybody is wondering about the film itself and image quality: My best guess as to the film is that it is 16mm, not super 16mm. Regular 8mm & 16mm have two sets of prong holes to hold the film as it goes through, with the tiny middle being the exposure. Super 8mm and 16mm only have one...

    Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film

    That to me is a major factor in making it hard to believe it's a hoax. Elsewhere on this thread I opine about how state of the art creature suits and makeup just weren't that good, based on what was being made at the time. If they were using a suit made for a low-budget production, they would...

    Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film

    One of the standard types of film reel for 16mm was roughly 3-5 minutes of footage, and that was a standard type of reel that would go in news or cheaper hobby cameras. You'd need an external reel holder to put in more than that. To change the film out of the camera, you'd have to put the whole...

    Dragons: Evidence They Existed

    I saw this article about ancient European flightless birds and thought that maybe they could be an inspiration for dragon stories: https://interestingengineering.com/early-europeans-lived-among-giant-300kg-birds

    YouTube: Official Trailer & Copycats

    I tried this on another board and the post failed to generate any answers, so I'm trying it here incase the mega-alien brains here know how this works. It's basically how YouTube almost surpresses the actual trailer in YouTube in favor of private individuals who copy and reupload the trailer but...

    Moderators Of Legend

    I think there is more than that, reading between the lines and the hint of things in threads other than just the PC thread... I just have a feeling it's been a tough go for the World's Greatest Mods as of late!

    Moderators Of Legend

    Considering all the recent drama, I thought it would be nice to post a general thanks to the mods and the work they do. They don't mod for the prestige, or the money, or the exciting love life that comes from being a moderator... they do it because they want to make the board a better place...
