Hello everyone, I been looking around the web for a long time for different videos and I must say, the amount of fake videos out there is huuuuge!
I often wonder what these fakers feel that they get out of it. I wonder if any of you guys have any ideas about the different reasons for fakery. I understand that some people do it to impress and others to just to be annoying and maybe some from secret government sources but what other reasons are there you think?

This clip below I think shows what people are capable of these days. I mean, can we really trust anything we see on our screens these days?

Looks like this guy was looking for a spot in Hollywood.
But then again, with the way NASA is who really knows.

This guy - The Faking Hoaxer (http://youtube.com/user/TheFakingHoaxer) - has done some good stuff. He's very open about it... he is not trying to deceive.

Rather, he's trying to open our eyes about how easy it is to produce fake videos. (And if you're good, it is!)

I agree that the Faking Hoaxer is really good at what he does. Amazing really. It just makes me wonder with all these people analysing videos and photos for evidence. Is there any point? I mean it seems like they can manufacture anything these days. With Hoagland for example, Couldnt it be that someone added the sky from earth on some of his moon photos and then darkened it to remove structures and then that is the 3d noise stuff he sees in the background? I know its far fetched but is it not possible? Hope I make any sence, Its just a thought that crossed my mind..

For me this video hoax or is just another confirmation of the fact that we did make it to Mars one way or the other,
Remember the JUMP ROOM?
Maybe NASA paid this guy to make the vid, or maybe some other underground facility.
Think about it, how many times has sci-fi painted the truth for us to totally discard.

Agreed! I am a firm believer of that, whatever we can imagine we can manifest.

Absolutely - like that one of Obama kicking open the door - that was brilliantly done.

TFH does it because he can. he's having fun. it's honest entertainment.
rumor has it that he's been on hiatus developing a full length film.
along with his naturalist imaging skills, his choice of romantic, dreamy, emotional music is terrific.
he says he'll be back something in this month. we'll see...
along with the likes of trained cgi folks like Neill Blomkamp (District 9),
TFH's homegrown talents signal a new cinema. rough, editorial, peripheral -- things can't be -- are common.

as for we at PA, it also signals the importance of vigilance, objectivity and wariness.
