As if you needed further convincing that the so-called archival documentary footage in alien abduction flick Fourth Kind is falsified - now, a production insider confirms it.

An insider who worked on Fourth Kind tells io9:

I can assure you it is totally fake. The interviews were shot in High Def on a soundstage with actors and then made to look like bad home video. The college logos and video break-up was added by a visual effects team.


According to this same insider, the film ran overbudget in post-production. Fake footage can be pricey!
