Twelve Seconds of New Bigfoot Footage?

The Edmonton Sun is reporting that an…

…Edmonton man claims to have at least 12 seconds of video footage that proves Bigfoot exists. He’s incorporated it into a 30-minute documentary that’s airing at the Citadel [in Edmonton, Alberta] next Thursday [November 9, 2006].

The movie is called Sylvanic, a derivative of a native word used in southern British Columbia to describe the “shadow guardians of the mountains” says movie maker Todd Standing, 33.

Standing’s been interested in Bigfoot for years, but remained a hardline skeptic until about a year ago, when he said he caught his first glimpse of the mythical monstrosity.

“I will reveal to the world everything I know about these animals, everything the natives have known for generations – about how they’ve been evading us, and why we must enact legislation to protect them,” Standing said.

He and two research colleagues claim to have hair samples from the animal, and footage of a seven-foot-tall creature weighing approximately 400 lbs. running through the mountains.

Standing says his footage contains excellent details of the muscle movement seen as the creature moves quickly on screen.

Sylvanic airs at 7, 8 and 9 p.m. at the Citadel’s Zeidler Hall next Thursday, November 9, 2006. Tickets are $5, and proceeds are being donated to the Edmonton Humane Society.
