“”The eagle snatching baby video fooled me, but it was a hoax…
A blog post on the Montreal animation school Centre NAD website claims that the video was a hoax created by their students. The post states:
The “Golden Eagle Snatches Kid” video, uploaded to YouTube on the evening of December 18, was made by Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault and Félix Marquis-Poulin, students at Centre NAD, in the production simulation workshop class of the Bachelors degree in 3D Animation and Digital Design.”
According to the post, “Both the eagle and the kid were created in 3D animation and integrated in to the film afterwards.”
In all seriousness, I’d like to get my hands on Normand, Loic, and Felix, as well as their professors. If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I take a VERY dim view of hoaxers wasting OUR TIME by their foolish attempts to claim 15 minutes of “fame”.
Shame on them!! What a group of losers.
