Australian UFO Wave Website Admits UFO Footage is Faked

A day after requesting comment and publishing a video analysis submitted by a ufowatchdog.com reader, the website originally posting often too dramatic UFO footage has come forward claiming it all to be an experimental digital video project funded by the Australian government. A person identifying himself as Christopher Kenworthy has taken credit for producing the video clips that appeared on the Australian UFO Wave 2006 website.

Kenworthy claims to have received funding from the Australian Film Commission for his project, which he originally proposed as "the art of illusion" by manufacturing fake UFO footage "not to trick people with visual effects, but to create emotions and sensations that would be impossible without digital technology. It is a genuine art event, rather than a simple deception."

A statement on the website adds that the videos were created to "give people a taste of the drama and excitement of a UFO Close Encounter," to supposedly "improve research into videos of genuine UFOs," and to "show skeptics that they often rely on faith rather than evidence."

Kenworthy claims that very few people suspected the clips were manufactured, but ufowatchdog.com observed there were numerous researchers in the core of serious UFOlogy who were laughing and shaking their heads at many of the clips, and not taking the website at all seriously. Most noteably, the video clips of a supposed alien, a UFO "attacking a car, a box formation of UFO lights, and a video supposedly shot from a plane's in-camera system were regarded as bogus just by their appearance alone.
Is this a private fight, or can anyone join in?

And I'll bet there were many other people who took the website very seriously, without bothering to observe, investigate, or even think rationally. Many UFO sightings may be genuine, but it does everyone a huge disservice to blindly believe every claim that is made.
