Executions Staged? Or A Video For Great Misdirection?

Recommended Posts

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-07-29/hackers-claim-john-mccain-knew-isis-execution-videos-were-staged

Metabunk.org has attempted to debunk the hacker's claims...

The video shows a very brightly lit stage with simulated desert floor and a greenish backdrop. A film crew and multiple lights surround the stage, but they are strongly backlit. The video has no audio, and is very low resolution so no details can be made out. The kneeling man wears a head cover, to suggest that the head could be replaced by a computer generated image, or separately recorded video.

The video appears to be an attempt to replicate one of the "Jihadi John" beheading videos of 2014. In particular it appears to be an attempt to replicate the video of James Foley. None of those videos show actual beheadings, and instead show Jihadi John sawing at the neck with no apparent blood, and then they cut to a shot of a decapitated head posed on top of a body. This led to speculation that the videos were faked.

However we can tell it is not a video of the faking of any of the Jihadi John videos for a number of reasons.

So is someone faking videos for misdirection? Someone merely making a documentary?

I'm minded to think that a lot of digital content on the Internet is not, well not faked exactly, but centrally produced in some warehouse somewhere. Particularly some viral videos, various outrages, conspiraloon stuff and a good proportion of pornography.

Few people outside the industry realize how far CGI and green-screen technology has come on, and how ubiquitous it is now in TV and film production.

EG.

All I will say is that is perfectly possible that ISIS executions are being faked.

Most if not all of the Bin-Laden post-911 videos were clearly bogus. Al-CIAda redux?

There's a story that during filming Attack of the Clones Natalie Portman was sick when they were due to film a scene with her in it, George Lucas just told them to do the scene and just "add her in later".

That's just incredible.

ISIS execution videos are very well staged managed and story boarded, and the props are well made, which surprises me for a chaotic 'war' situation. I also don't understand the ISIS execution videos. I don't understand why none of them show the beheading. So more and more I don't believe them. That's not to say I don't think ISIS aren't killing people by beheading. But if it's during the video why don't they show the act for maximum effect ?

Someone has also realised that beheading is, to some extent, yesterday's news, since we have now seen burning, drowning, and explosive necklaces.

Regarding Green Screens. I always think their use highlights the actor/actresses skill. Acting in the absence of any setting or context.

There are plenty of ISIS videos that do show the beheadings and the shootings and as you note, for variety, the occasional mass drowning using the cage they burnt the Jordanian pilot alive in plus one chap suspended over a fire for a bit of a roasting. The explosive necklace was genocidal genius and they also do drive by executions, RPG executions and victims packed into a car for a thorough machine gunning. I suppose genocide has to be much more creative in this media age. Gassing just doesn't cut it any more.
