Jurassic Park, Lord of the Rings, and ... Bigfoot?
A recent post on Blogsquatcher has me thinking. With the exponential advance of CGI technology over the last decade or so and its ever-increasing affordability, one can almost hear the clock ticking in the background. How long before a skilled CGI artist decides it would be both fun and lucrative to render a digitally hoaxed bigfoot video? One only has to look at a slew of recent films, television shows, and documentaries to see how far this technology has progressed. If done well by an artist who won't tip his hand by showing us too much, the image might appear flawless.
