YouTube Videos Mystery Solved
In an article in today’s Los Angeles Times, writer David Sarno has done what no UFO aficionado dared: He has found the person responsible for the so called Haiti and Dominican Republic UFO videos (at least the man whoÂ is taking credit for them.)
The story is logical. Sarno scoured the web and finally found someone who wrote him back, offering to speak to a journalist about the videos. Soon, he was talking on the phone with someone who identified herself as “Sam” and repeated the CGI expert’s words as he talked in the background. The artist, known only by his last name of “Barzolff” has been in the computer animation business for at least ten years, and is now working on his idea for a feature film about two men who perpetrate a UFO hoax so convincing that it goes out of control.
Accompanying the article is a new video made by the hoaxer at the request of the L.A. Times in order to prove that he is the one responsible.
From Sarno’s feature:
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.”Â
Of course, there are plenty of people who won’t believe this story either.
