The following stabilizations of the new “Nessie” video were created and sent to Cryptomundo by Bill Appleton, Chief Technology Officer, DreamFactory Software, Inc. of Mountain View, CA.
It is great footage that seems to show a hump, and then a long neck (perhaps even a head). Eel? Seal? Cryptid long-necked seal? Nessie? Unfortunately, without any reference points, the next question has to be: How big is this?
Also, as I’ve said before, film footage is a form of an eyewitness’s experience and needs to be investigated as such. Background checks and a history need to be created on Gordon Holmes. For someone to have popped up after six years of doing research at Loch Ness, sort of out of the blue, what kind of footprint has he left before this event? Could this be a test of some sort of how new images would be treated on the world stage?
Of course, too, I want to congratulate Gordon Holmes, an apparently patient investigator at Loch Ness who took some footage and made it available for the world to view without melodrama or a huge publicity build-up.
Time will tell, but he may have captured the most talked about visuals of a cryptid for 2007.
Amazing footage, especially after you view it in light of the stablized video.
Therefore, here below is how technology can help us all see more clearly what Gordon Holmes camera “saw.” Let the analyses begin.
The first series of animated stills have been stabilized.
The second series of animated stills have been slowed down by 50%.
My thanks to Bill Appleton for sharing these with me for posting at Cryptomundo, with his permission.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
