Sylvanic 2005

The Natives call it Sylvanic?? That term comes from”Latin” so that is extremely unlikely.

And the long since removed Sylvanic video #1:

Let’s not forget the Toddster ran a production company, and called for actors shortly before Sylvanic Video #1.

Being accused by a “Standling,” of taken a photo cap and manipulating the info… when in reality I got the picture via the media who did not alter it, who in turn got it from Todd.

And finally some analysis of the TS “Survivorman footage:” Short but sweet and to the point:

**** Update November 24th, 2014****

To clarify.. perceptions based on attendance at Todd’s lecture are based on the photo shown, not on actual attendance. Upon watching the video it would appear that it seemed a bit more crowded.

As far as being many offended, maybe a wrong choice of words, but I have heard several in some small groups boycotting the Summit due to Standing’s appearance. The actual number is unknown.

As far as Standing stating his sister was not a make up artist, which is not a point brought up on this blog yesterday, it was his wife Louise, (for a long time thought to be his sister.) Louise claims only to be a cosmetic make up artist.

The person who pointed this out to me actually taught me a valuable lesson on perceptions. We are not always perfect, but we admit to any mistakes or anything that can be misconstrued. Thank you.


Well there seems to be nothing Earth shattering from Todd Standing’s presentation at the Sasquatch Summit in Washington over this past weekend.

Here’s a lesson for all the newcomers, especially the ones who weren’t around when Todd Standing decided to show up.

See hoaxers are at their weakest when they first begin their hoaxes. Here is an example to that as Todd starts making grand claims in 2005.

 

It is hard to believe in this day an age that there are many places left in the vast mountain ranges of North America that are left untouched by man. But there is. The name may have changed in the last century but the legend remains the same. Sylvanic, as it is now called by the natives that have know of its legends thousands of years before civilization enveloped this continent, is a well hidden canyon nestled deep within the depths of the rocky mountains. This website explores the mysteries and folklore that surround this enigmatic rivers pass that leads to an ancient valley. A large unbroken chain of mountains encircles this valley and it is said that the sacred pass is guarded by the shadows of the mountain. A group of 4 people went into this valley on a February weekend in 2005 to document as much information about Sylvanic as they could. What they found was shocking…

                                                                                      Sylvanic.com at its inception May 2005.

This area called “Sylvanic” was NEVER known to any local Natives, and the pass was supposed to be a two by two hole in the mountain range. Sounds like stuff of fairy tales. But the it was followed by the long gone Sylvanic Video 1 which can be viewed here.

Todd admits to be in Sylvanic video 1 and his sister was operating the camera.

“As far as the dog he was just acting terrified.  That dog would have died before it went another step into sylvanic, so we just left him behind with our cameraman.

I guess i am the dude so what did i see?  To be honest i was more concerned with my little sister.  She recorded the video footage and she was just standing there while this thing was growling at her.  My first instinct was to grab her and run.  People have asked me why didn’t we continuing recording.  The answer is about 1 second after the video 1 footage stops i grabbed my sister to pull her back away and she dropped the camera.  We ran about 200meters before we stopped.  After about 10 minutes we went back to pick up the camera and that is when we explored behind the trees where we found the cave full of hair.”

                                                                                      Todd Standing, May 7th, 2005

 

Cave full of hair? Why didn’t he collect some samples??

In the same series of statements, Todd Standing also states he was going to take a Botanist due to there being a possible new plant discovery, a paleontologist, and a biologist. This all dates back to 2005. 

 

“Sorry conspiracy but i have a full compliment going on this trip with me already.  I will take you next time.  For now i have my cameraman two PHDs ( One a Biologist and the other a paleontologist) my original guide(without his dog), myself and a crazy friend.”

                                                                                   Todd Standing, May 9th, 2005

“The botanist that took pictures of what she thinks is a new species of plant is going back to sylvanic in about 4 weeks( Before me and my group)  so we will she what she comes back with.”

                                                                                   Todd Standing, May 18th, 2005

Several days later, Todd is talking about how much hair evidence he going to attain from the cave.

“But as i have said before that cave was full of hair so this time i will bring a garbage bag and stuff it full of hair.  If you would like maybe i could even send you a piece?”

                                                                                  Todd Standing, May 25th, 2005

How did that work out… I don’t know there was never any follow up. Mrs. Bigfoot must have cleaned the cave perhaps. 

But you see it is very common for a hoaxer to weave a complicated web of lies and stories. Todd has long gotten a pass on the “Dan Hamilton Incident,” he wrote about on Sylvanic nine years ago. Having no evidence to support such claims of the man whom disappeared in the mystical Sylvanic along with a picture he posted of someone gone missing in the 30’s.

But no one knows where this mysterious “Sylvanic” area is, not the aboriginals that several Canadian researchers have inquired, nor the geological surveys.

But if this area was so “evergreen” with Sasquatches, why would Todd take over and area of another researcher?

According to David Rodriguez on his blog  as reported by a Canadian Taxidermist by the name of Ken Walker claims that a Bigfoot researcher first took Standing into his research area that Standing eventually usurped and is the geographical location that Standing used to take Les Stroud, Jeff Meldrum, John Bindernagel and Sonya Zohar.

According to the article Walker was described…

“Ken Walker is a world champion taxidermist from Alberta.  He has his work on display in institutions like the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History (Panda), and other museums, he has received a multitude of awards for his work.  Here is another good Article on Ken Walker.  Ken is someone with actual integrity, unlike what has been generated from Standing… Ken is an avid outdoorsman and hunter.  Ken has a very good reputation and he also has a sincere interest in bigfoot.

                                         Dave Rodriguez, “The Sasquatch Voice Blog,” November 22nd, 2014

Over time and scrutiny other strange stuff began surfacing, like the Outstanding Production website,  where Todd uses the alias Todd Rockwell. Why would Todd Standing hide the fact that he was a major part of a production company? There may be a  non-Bigfoot related reason why, however it seems dubious.

Or the departure of filmmaker Kenneth Barr and Idiom films working with Standing.

Due to professional differences I have disassociated myself completely from Todd Standing and The Sylvanic Project as of November 1st, 2007.

There will obviously be speculation on what has lead to my departure and it is something that I will not go into here, my reasons are my own and is due entirely to Mr. Standings behavior and conduct as of recent. I no longer wish any association, no matter how remote, to be construed between Mr. Standing/The Sylvanic Project and myself nor my company.

Todd Standing No-Kill?   Not from this statement.

My biggest problem is Tracks, hair, Blood, Feces, Video… Will never be enough evidence. I need a body or a piece of one.

                                            Todd Standing Statement on the Sylvanic Forum  August 13th , 2007

 

And the film he is showing this week? Does this sound familiar?

  • We have gathered an enormous amount of entirely unique documentation about these animals, which has now been compiled into a 40-minute documentary.
  • We have been touring our documentary around North America in an attempt to educate people about our findings and begin to enhance pubic understanding of the reality of this species.
  • At every showing I discuss in detail how important it is that no one ever attempt to incapacitate, provoke, or kill one of these animals. For their safety as much as these animals.
  • At every showing there is a petition for anyone to sign that will ensure species protection for these animals.
  • At every showing between 80-90 percent of people that attend sign our petition.
  • At every showing all the proceeds go to the local humane society. (This is an animal rights issue and I have always been an animal rights activist)

If you have seen the documentary prior to May 4th/2007, it has been totally redone. Over 90% of the film is new, the Bigfoot Videos 2 and 3 are less compressed and now almost perfect original quality.

Is it a coincidence the film he was showing this past weekend again only 40 minutes?

Seems like a lot of new was old.

All the credit goes to “Sweaty Yeti” from the Bigfoot Forums… (A special thanks to Andrew Webster and Joshua Kitzakaze for bringing this to my attention.)

Check out two pictures that Standing had circulated in the past as being a real Sasquatch…

Sweaty Yeti, provided the community with a GIF that shows that it looks like a little manipulation is here at play.

Notice the blur on the foliage which disappears or appears with however order you look at the pictures from?

It would also explain as we called in in 2010, the different angles of light sources. Either this Sasquatch was very photogenic or came into a studio for a photo shoot.

CGI layering folks looking like from composite photos or videos. The subject in the film is a clay model as evidenced by the following picture.

 

Fake nose

 

Unless the upper lip separates from the nose, which it does NOT in a primate, guess what? That line should not be there. In fact in the close up you can see the lines of the layer of clay used to construct this fellow.

Fact is the method would have been to construct the face first and the nose would have been added in afterwards. All consistent with a clay model.

Just who is Todd Standing?

We pointed out in an earlier blog about my first gut reaction to Todd Standing’s alleged head shot of a Sasquatch and how my gut reaction just doesn’t sit right.

Well first of all it is on good merit.

See why in the world would Todd Standing use an alias while being the main figure at a production company? More matter of fact his sister Louise is using an alias as well.  (Yes he has a sister Louise).

Here’s a screen shot of the old production company site:

And we know Standing aka Todd Rockwell had his own faux Facebook page:

Aug31

Apparently Todd also has a sister, Chantel.

The question is why would you hide your real name from a legitimate business? unless it is a ploy to set up for your REAL business of Bigfoot hoaxing.

Of course the above ad when revealed several years ago, and some work done over at Ghost Theory, Sylvanic Video #1 disappeared.

It was very clear  that Todd had put an ad in a paper looking for actors prior to the release of Sylvanic one.

But I also believe in my opinion, that the actor thing was not going to work out, and his first original goal was a “Blair Witch”  style Bigfoot “Documentary.”  I also think that Sylvanic 1 was actually Louise Standing playing the voice of the girl in the video.

Whatever the case, the early, less practiced deceptions and aliases should be an alert that Standing was not trying to hide himself from the Bigfoot world, but rather attempting to hide the fact he was fronting a production company is HUGE.

Now take a look at that “Bigfoot” head, and tell me why is there no shots of the body, or it walking into picture? If it’s handheld why no shaking?

It reeks of production company work, my thoughts are CGI with a mix of real photography, and not very good at that because the fact that in both the video and captures the focal point seems at several different depths, at which the layers were focused improperly.

If this was one fluid piece, such as an a real photo or video or animatronic head captured by video, there would only be one focal point per frame of video or picture.
