It's amazing the types of videos you can find on Youtube like UFO videos or supposed ghost in a house. The cheap see through compositing is simple to detect as fake but when it gets to the handcam looking stuff it becomes more difficult to detect. Heck, even the Haiti video went all around the world fooling newscasters and the people that saw it. I admit, it looked pretty real until really analyzed. Does anyone have any advice on how certain people create stuff so realistically? Are they using After Effects and compositing stuff from Maya and LW? What is your thought? Here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ot4AcNH6tYY&feature=user
Is it possible to make this in a computer and composite so seamlessly? Even if there was a trap door, the person would have to move really fast. Can you debunk a video like this that claims to be real with your animation knowledge and seeing the tricks of the trade?

In the youtube you linked, I think it's a physical trick, not a digital one. Just my opinion...

I can hear the "ghost" walking in the video... I think its a fake and not a good one...
