“We recently managed to shoot down an object that was landing. We were monitoring the activity of a small capsule for nine days, where it was making the exact same course, around the same time [every day]. (…) We finally neutralized the object, stopping it from flying at the night of March 15, 2007. It happened not very far from the city of Tasso Fragoso, Maranhao, [Brazil]. Near the BR330 road. Two creatures came out of the object and resisted the capture, acting violently and trying to run away. They were both shot down. (…) During the time that we were taking the beings, I was left alone with them and took some photos with my cell phone. I didn’t have much time and couldn’t take many photos because my cell phone battery was going off and the stress of photographing the creature”.
Or so the story goes, according the the “testimony of a MIB” (in Portuguese). As it turns out, it was all the invention of the talented Brazilian graphics artist Philipe Kling David in his own blog, the “Mundo Gump“. As he quickly explained:
“it is my creation, 100% of it. Both the text and the images. In fact, everything happened by accident, I was plying with zbrush and ended up creating an alien. I decided to use this alien in 3dsmax and added some lightining and textures. Then I rendered and photographed the computer screen with my cell phone. Looking at the cell phone, I was impressed as to how it looked more real. Then my mind started to invent this whole X-Files story … Tasso Fragoso was a city chosen arbitraily on google Earth”.
It’s indeed very interesting how a virtual computer creation can look more real when an analogic, real stage — photographing a computer screen with a cell phone camera — is added. This alien is so good it’s comparable to the 20/20 Alien Autopsy recreation, made by special effects artists with a very detailed dummy (and which was later mistaken for a real alien).
