I had a nice visit from John Rosman from OPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting) a few weeks ago.  He wanted to talk to me about the legacy and impact of the Patterson/Gimlin Film 50 years after it was obtained down in Bluff Creek, CA.  We spent a couple hours in my garage looking at the film, talking about the creature and its movements, and looking at casts.  He was very interested in the subject, and had read a bit before coming over to do the interview.  (Informed reporters do interviews that are much more enjoyable.)

The article he was working on just came out today.  There is a video component as well, so be sure to click on the article to check out the interviews of me in my garage, and of Dr. Jeff Meldrum in his lab via Skype.  

Film Introducing Bigfoot To World Still Mysterious 50 Years Later

Although it’s been decades since the Patterson-Gimlin film turned a Northwest legend, Bigfoot, into a household name, the footage and stories behind it still remain fascinating 50 years later.

The filmmakers, and namesakes of the film, are two former rodeo men from Yakima County in Washington. One, Bob Gimlin, still lives there. Roger Patterson died in 1972. They shot the footage off the banks of Bluff Creek in Northern California.

Bigfoot is seen on film for less than one minute, but one frame — 352 — has pretty much become the universal symbol for Sasquatch. And that famous giant walking ape is actually a she; her name is Patty.

But what might be most surprising — after a half century of advancement in film and costume technology — is that this footage has yet to be officially debunked.

I recently spent some time with Rictor Riolo on his video platform, “After Hours with Rictor.”  This is the first of two one-hour interviews, the next to be published on Wednesday, April 23rd.  Enjoy!

Fox News in North Carolina recently paid colleague and friend of the ‘squatch, Mike Greene, a visit.  They were largely interested in the thermal footage that likely shows a sasquatch that Mike obtained in 2009.

N.C. Man Claims He Has Picture of Bigfoot

ASHEBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — 

A man that once worked as a fraud investigator claims he has captured an image of North American folklore.

Mike Greene, a former chief of fraud investigation in New Jersey, claims he captured video of Bigfoot in the Uwharrie National Forest over a year ago.

“In the middle of the night, I was awakened by what I call, ‘Darth Vader’ breaths,” said Greene. Greene said he was able to capture a thermal image of Sasquatch that night.


“The image is the first comprehensive thermal image of a Sasquatch… even though I admit that it’s blurry,” said Greene.

In the video, Greene claims you can see a big creature come out of the woods and grab a candy bar that was set up to attract the Sasquatch.

“It can’t be anything else, I mean, it literally can’t be anything else,” said Greene.

Greene said many people have said the image is just a guy in a fat suit or gorilla suit, but he claims the thermal image proves it’s something different.

“The heat signature – which is what you’re looking at…the heat signature would be completely different. It would be splotchy,” said Greene. “You could put a guy in a Bigfoot costume and fool night vision, because that’s just like a video camera. But if you put a thermal image on him, that’s going to look completely different.”

After seeing the video, Greene was convinced he had captured video of the much-discussed creature Bigfoot.

“Yeah, there’s no doubt about it,” said Greene.

Greene admits that he, and the rest of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, are surprised there has not been better proof after several years of searching and many attempts to get a glimpse of the evasive alleged creature.

“We have, in the organization, maybe 200 game cams out looking for Sasquatches. We haven’t got one lousy picture of a Sasquatch, which doesn’t make any sense, unless you think that maybe these things are so smart that they either see the game cam,” said Greene.

Greene said there is no doubt he caught one of the rare images of the increasingly evasive creature.

“Clear as a bell, absolutely unequivocally, no doubt what it was – to me, anyway,” said Greene.

A majority of scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a legitimate animal, in part because some estimate large numbers necessary to maintain a breeding population.

Greene said fossils of a sasquatch-like creature have been unearthed in China. He claims the creature came over the land bridge that used to exist between Asia and Alaska..
