Here's Robert Lindsay's Take on The Leaked "Matilda" Footage
What is the "Matilda" footage? Has anyone actually seen it? Does it even exist? Is Matilda a wookie? If you're not confused, you're not paying attention. Blogger Robert Lindsay was one of the first to write about the Matilda video, and he hasn't said much lately. He's been quietly sitting on the sidelines, watching, and waiting. This morning he finally got tired of the misinformation and decided to speak out:
Erickson Project footage reportedly released. Some stills of Matilda the teenage Bigfoot have reportedly been leaked to the web via Bill Munns. Someone who had an NDA with Erickson leaked some of the stills to Munns, who promptly declared them to based on a modified Wookie mask.
The skeptic and scofftic community is going nuts over this. However, there are some problems.
First of all, Erickson bought looked at 4-5 videos that the owners of the house had. The first one was thought to be faked. The Erickson people thought it was a fake. They sent this video around to a bunch of experts and the consensus was that this was some sort of a fake. Munns was one of those experts. Munns said it was a modified Wookie mask. Erickson decided not to buy that video. However, he did buy the other four videos which were all thought to be genuine.
So the question is whether Munns is referring to stills from the video that even Erickson thought was fake or whether he is referring to the famous Matilda footage which is said to be better than the Patterson footage. No one knows, and no one knows if Munns reviewed the footage that actually made it into the Erickson Project movie.
So Munns’ trashing of those photos does not in any way invalidate Erickson’s project, footage or documentary.
