 [TRAILHEAD] Marble Hornets

hi there folks!

i'm new here (been lurking some time earlier during the cloverfield ARG) and i hope i am doing everything right with posting this here, please correct me if i am wrong.

found the following on youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/user/MarbleHornets

some guy looking through tapes from a friends student film project. he's telling his friend dropped the project after becoming increasingly stressed and irritated. since then he had no contact with him and there were some strange occurences involving a "tall, slender man".

theres also a twitter here:
http://twitter.com/marblehornets

could this possibly be the start of a new game?
i think this looks pretty promising. whats your opinion?

greets,

I'm kinda creeped out by the videos already. Can't wait to see where this one heads.

Definitely looks like it could be something. I'm going to send him a DM on Twitter asking how many tapes there were/any info on the movie he was making.

The man you see standing outside in video Entry #1, sure looks a lot like "The Observer" from Fringe.

Sounds pretty cool, I think I'm going to follow it Smile Anyway, did you guys already saw entry #2? Do you also think that was set before the events of entry #1?

I'd say so, Hanna. Perhaps the man even entered the car unnoticed while Alex was out filming and chatting with himself.

I've never seen the Fringe but looking at photos online... there does seem to be a resemblance, although it's hard to tell for sure with only one blurry shot.
What is The Observer like?

Well, that was nicely *heebie jeebies* since I just had to view it in HD with zoom.......

and then slowly he turned as the camera went to black. OK, already waiting for the next vid.

I messaged MarbleHornets via youtube asking about how many tapes there were and the basic premise of Marble Hornets (the movie)

Quote:
Tons of tapes. It would take a while to count them properly, which isn't really time I have. If I had to guess, I'd say upwards of a hundred. Alex shoved them all in plastic bags so they're not filed in a way that would make them easy to count.

If I remember correctly, Marble Hornets was about the main character coming back to his hometown and recalling events from his childhood. Alex was big into those kinds of movies. Pretentious film student stuff. I was on the set a few times, maybe three or so. He had given me a script but I can't find it now.

But I do know that a good bit of filming took place around his house, which is in a heavily wooded area.

Thanks for your interest,
J.


UPDATE: When I asked him how Alex seemed last time he saw him this was the response:

Quote:
He had lost a lot of weight the last time I saw him. He looked sickly, and was very short with me. Pretty unlike him at the time.

-J

Now, I know I'm not the only one who was reminded of Tim Gunn in #2.
...that being said, I've never been so afraid of Tim Gunn in my entire life.

On the Marble Hornets Twitter feed, he said he forgot to eat. It seems like the tapes are already taking their effect.

Edit: oh! oh! new entry! The thing about Alex having a camera on him at all times.. almost like he thought he was being stalked? Maybe that's why the original guy in entry two was so freaked out.

Perhaps to catch more of the Man. He must have kept being troubled by him, or was eager to catch more of him on tape after the first encounter.

he may well of been filming himself fearing for his safety and wanted to get proof if anything happened to him
