The infamous Bigfoot photograph/film by Roger Patterson which was allegedly filmed in 1967 has been uncovered as a hoax.
Harry Kemball, Director and Screenwriter at Golden Eagle Productions told THE 'X' CHRONICLES researchers that he was at the CanWest 16mm Film Editing Room in 1967 when Roger Patterson and his friends put together hi sBigFoot Hoax on 16mm film.
According to Kemball, they all laughed and joked about the rental of the gorilla costume and the construction of the Big Feet.
One of Kemball's extra tall buddies played the role of Bigfoot.
Patterson and his crew carefully chose muddy ground so that the footprints would expand.
The film crew carefully shot it on 16mm Kodak EF High Speed Color Positive film stock and when the film is force processed in so-called "Hot Soup," the film grain is enlarged to add to the sense of mystery.
They added a shaky camera zoom with the right amount of "out of focus" to complete the deception.
Kemball, who is a graduate in comparative anatomy studies, states, "This creature does not and never has existed."
The 'X' Chronicles is in possession of a signed statement by Kemball to the statements contained in this release.
A file has been attached in pcx of the hoaxed photo.
