Revised Website Index of Released Material
This website has been modified to reflect the fact that report material is being
prepared and presented is different than originally anticipated.
NOTE: This Index of Release Material was originally chronological,
earliest first and more recent below. It has been revised in reverse, with the most recent release at the top (right after
the "Beginner's Guide" which is fixed at the top). Older releases follow so the visitor is more likely to start with the most recent
and up-to-date material at the top.
The PDF Documents available for download are as follows:
Added Nov. 27, 2009, this is a helpful basic document for
people who are just starting to learn about the Patterson-Gimlin film and the controversies about it. The Guide has been structured
with basic discussions that explain the filming incident itself, the people involved, the basic (common) arguments about whether the
subject is real or a hoax, and the reference material used by people who research or analyze the film. It also has a glossary of words
or phrases you may encounter in future discussions, some of which have a particular meaning in reference to the film analysis.
A detailed description of the scanning, analysis and frame count for an essentially intact full first
reel copy, which should put an end to claims that the first reel is spliced, edited or otherwise containing any suspicious footage
that has been hidden from viewing and analysis.
Released October, 2011
1D - Critical Observations,
and a lengthy essay
directly addressing malicious claims that I am some kind of fraud. This Release has been featured at the top because of ongoing challenges to
my personal integrity by people who's personal agenda is to discredit me, patricularly members of the JREF forum.
Release 3.3.1 has been posted on April 8, 2011
The material introduces the 43 years of attempts
to prove the PGF a hoax, and why all such proofs fail to resolve the PGF mystery or gain any consensus of acceptance.
Details how any comparison of the PGF to McClarin's walk footage should be done,
and offers a preliminary release of the "Revision to my Lens Analysis", which has been promised for the last year.
Released January 22, 2011
describes the new VFC -2 Frame inventory system which I have upgraded, and explains that the current frame count is 954 frames, differing
from the traditional reports of 953 frames. This update also lists the various copies I have scanned or examined.
This PDF contains new material (text and diagrams) explaining splicing
and how splices may be detected in copies, to answer some of the often asked questions of how we can evaluate the possibility of splices
in the PGF original, if all we have is copies to study.
Copy 8 is a 100' film copy edited from the ANE documentary program, "Bigfoot: Man or Beast". It is primarily the portion of
the documentary using PGF footage. This release describes the copy and my analysis of it's content.
PHASE TWO RELEASES
PDF 3.2 The Physical
Film Part #3
Note: The above "First Reel Analysis" PDF corrects one image in this document, thought first to be Roger, but
now is considered Bob Gimlin. Correction PDF was posted October, 2011
These releases detail the physical description and specifications
of the PGF in extensive detail, as foundation for subject analysis.
Report Release 1H in Two Parts Released December 13, 2009
Release 1H - Part One
covers analysis of the physical film itself, with such issues as the film runout, the frame count, splicing
claims, gunshot evidence claims, and camera identifications as related to claims more than one camera may have been there. Also there
is further discussion about the Photogrammetry Analysis effort, and why something we assume as fact about the Bluff Creek circumstances
must be wrong. PDF 7.8 MB
Release 1H - Part Two
covers the Authenticity of the Patterson Filmed Subject, its anatomy, strong evidence
for its being a real biological entity and not a human in a suit, and particular lengthy explanations of why the claims of suit or
costume have no merit. PDF 10.5 MB
