Scott Herriott’s video…

Posted by: Rick Noll on November 17th, 2005

I attended and spoke at the PBS conference this year. This was my first time and I really enjoyed the people there… of course some I had met before… like Scott Herriott. Scott also spoke at the event. He showed a small video clip that has always intrigued me but I never seemed to have the time to really look at. Well here was my chance.

This picture was taken at the 2004 TBRC Conference. John Kirk, Scott Herriott and Chester Moore Jr. discuss Greg Long’s book.

When Scott had finished his talk and came back over to his table at the side of the room I questioned him about the video. I told him that whenever I looked at it I saw something that he had never talked about. He was intrigued and wanted me to show him what I was talking about, so he gave me one of his DVD’s to queue up.

When I finally got to the spot in the video I made a bunch of screen caps and then animated them as a GIF. He looked at it and seemed shocked that he had never seen that before.

I didn’t save the GIF but I found one screen cap for discussion here. What Scott has always talked about is below the area I have marked off.

Do you see the eyes, nose and mouth? If you have his DVD… check it out.

    Ok – that is just spooky — Im suprised scott never noticed that. Good Job 🙂

  2. Rick Noll responds:

    I think there is some distortion from the twigs in front of the subject in question.

    Yeah it is kind of freaky! I am now revising my opinion of this video. I think there is something there.

  3. yetifan responds:

    Thanks for the post Rick. What’s a bit odd about this is that what Rick has highlighted I actually don’t think is the freaky thing…lol…what I do think is freaky is a little further on in the clip…about two or three seconds when, just to the left of what Rick has highlighted, it looks like a rising of a head (very similar to the one in the other video shot just ten minutes later). Rick noticed this as well with me in Pennsylvania. I’m going to look at it closer tomorrow morning…mucho work ahead tonight.

  4. squatchworks responds:

    Could it be the upper face is the mother and the lower a young one, It looks like the mother is holding the young one closer to her chest? I have been watching the clip over and over, now i need to go look for the rising head.

  5. Joe Biello responds:

    This is the first time I have ever seen anything from this video that looks like a face. I have watched this video before and have never really seen what is being pointed out. This frame make it clear to me that there is something there.

  6. yetifan responds:

    Well Rick, bad news from my perspective.
    Looked at the footage carefully again…over and over and over. I think it’s light play. The main reason I say this is because, since I was there, those eyes (within the circle) on the DVD were no more than a foot and a half off the ground (something the size of an average chimp could be in there) But the other apparent eyes don’t jive with what I remember physically of the surroundings…seems way too low to accomodate what Daryl got a few minutes later on tape. However, I could be wrong. Rick, thanks again for taking the time to look at the DVD.

  7. The Big Footowski responds:

    I’m gonna have to see that footage again, just to give it another day in court. Part of the problem with the average person’s reluctance to accept sasquatch as more than a myth (at least with the NYC people I’m associated with) is the fact that they are oblivious to the amount of evidence out there.

    They think there have only been a few prints found…ever.
    They are unaware of the skookum cast, dermal ridge evidence, and all the more recent footage that has been taken.
    That’s not to say that ANY of the footage is the real thing.
    They simply have no idea that there is any other evidence out there.

    I get alot of this crap:
    “Don’t you think that if this thing was real there would be tracks found on a regular basis?”
    “That footage from the sixties is fake , the guy that made it said he faked it on his death bed last year.”

    and sometimes I’ll mention that Bigfoot has a historical record of existence going back to the native Americans…
    and they’ll say:
    “Don’t you think bigfoot would have died of old age by now?”

    and being realistic and a bit timid I’ll say “Well there isn’t ONE bigfoot of course there is a breeding population, like with any species.”

    “Wait a second, you think there’s more than ONE?!?!? HAHAHAHAHAHA.”

    At that point I wanna swan dive into a pit of broken glass because I’m ashamed to be associated with people that think that IF bigfoot was real… THERE IS ONLY ONE BIGFOOT that was somehow spontaneously brought into existence and is the one and only being that is seen repeatedly over and over through the decades by thousands of witnesses.

    Some of these meatheads make more money than I do and some of them have even reproduced.

    sorry to be long winded, my point is I’m excited about seeing the above footage again, I’ll see it…I’ll consider it. And my friends tonight will try and convince me over dinner and drinks tonight that there is reliable evidence that the planes that flew into the world trade center were piloted by agents of the CIA, and that I need to keep an open mind about such things…or as they put it “There’s alot more to it that we may not know about”

  8. Rick Noll responds:

    What if the subject is laying prone on the ground? Certainly that brush was not tall enough for even a man to stand and hide in… but for something lying down? I don’t think it is just light play… and here’s why:

    1. Facial features are in correct position and do not require extraordinary distortion for their logical placement.

    2. The facial features (eyes, nose and mouth) move together and in the same direction for a shorter distance than other movement seen (most likely by wind movement and light play).

    If you have watched other animals out in the wild you probably have noticed that when they are aware of being watched by a potential predator or threat they move only what is necessary of their body to maintain awareness (head and eyes or ears).

    I watched that section several times at the PBS conference and am not convinced it is light play. Scott… I think you’re just a born skeptic.

  9. Sasquatchery responds:

    Scott, I have a couple of questions on the video:

    1) Could you describe the weather at that time? It appears fairly bright and sunny in the video.

    2) What was directly behind the two of you as you were filming? Was it fairly thick bush, fairly open bush or open sky? It looks like from your Squatching documentary that you were looking up a hill during the incident.

    Thanks Scott, and just to let you know I bought your DVD at the Texas conference and it’s a riot.

    As I recall, it was a fairly sunny day with the sunlight filtering down through the canopy. It was about 2:30 in the afternoon on Oct. 12, 1992.

    It had taken us roughly 1.5 – 2 hours to get up the hill (at the bottom of which the two kids had had the sighting a few weeks earlier). It was fairly dense ground cover behind us (high enough to filter some of the sunlight) and much thicker immediately in front of us, where the eyes were…and then a few minutes later…the head and shoulders caught on the other camera.

  11. Sasquatchery responds:

    Scott, thanks for the info.

  12. Matty responds:

    Hey Folks,

    I have the old A&E video copy of this.
    Oh it gets weirder, believe it or not,
    what Rick has pointed out is the back side of its head. In the A & E video i see it move its head away from the log and blink its eyes. You have to relax and look close at exactly the above marked spot. It looks like an apes head.
    Look closer to the log, youl see it clearly!

  13. allenst responds:

    where can I see a clip of this video ?
