Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Stills from the film

Shot from a film may be granted a real shot in the form of pictures and videos. This is one of the easiest to confirm options fraud, but one of the most difficult to identify because it often happens that the object is unremarkable and the film should be well remembered for his identification. On special effects for films usually work the whole team of professionals such as computer graphics and other fields, so if you don't know the movie, then fraud is often indistinguishable from the original.

Mounting

Photo editing began to be used almost immediately after the advent of photography techniques. They were divided into methods of photomontage without manipulation of the image after receiving the photo and retouching of the photo itself or its negative (plate, film, etc.)

Objects in motion, captured on a long exposure

Most often this artifact is called skayfish if the lens gets a passing bird or insect. It is based on the discrepancy between the speed of the video and the frequency of the flapping of insect wings. Essentially, each video drops a few strokes of the wings of an insect, which when viewed looks like "arrow", provided with long protuberances. The motion of the insect by its translucent body seems to "boom" and vibration of the wings give the appearance of bumps.

Pareidolic illusion

A variety of visual illusions (the so-called "sensory illusions additions"); is the formation of illusory images, as a basis which are the details of the real object. Thus, the vague and obscure the visual image is perceived as something distinct and defined — for example, figures of people and animals in the clouds, the image of a man on the moon, "a hidden message", audible when you reverse the audio recordings, the shadows formed by leaves or complexes of objects in certain lighting (sometimes at a certain angle).

Deliberate falsification

This version includes any falsifications that imitate unexplained phenomena both from the outside: practical jokes, flash mobs, fake news, witness fraud, staging, etc.

There are many ways to make something similar to a ghost or a flying saucer from improvised materials, without using video and photomontage.

Many homemade things made for the sake of a joke, a practical joke or a direct imitation of a mystical being or event can be taken as unexplained not only in photos and videos, but also in reality.

Studio effects for your

There are a number of programs for processing photos and video that put the final image from the list to remove phone photo or video. For the selected image you can adjust the size and location of the facility, in some programs you can change the contrast, color, transparency and other simple settings. Video and photos obtained by such programmes are often not only used for entertainment, but not rare issue for paldino survey of unexplained phenomena.

I'm about 80% certain this is from a scene in a movie. I've seen the movie. Can't remember the name. Think it was Mr. Mystery on Netflix.
