For the first time, we tell you how it was done, where it was filmed, and what it shows
Sounding like something from an Indiana Jones movie, the video clip ignited the world into believing that something sinister was afoot, a shameful misappropriation of priceless objects from the fabled Hall of Records involving everyone from Dr Zahi Hawass to Edgar Cayce's A.R.E. (Association for Research and Enlightenment).
We can now reveal how this video was put together, where it was made, and what it really shows. We conclude that this footage is not what it seems, and does not show what it says.
The soundtrack to the video gives the impression of construction work taking place in the vicinity of the nocturnal activity. Yet, clearly, it is not original to the video, for it consists of five repeated cycles of ambient noises, each one 1 minute, 6 seconds in length. Those behind the video claim they messed around with its audio in order to protect the uniformed cameraman, whose voice features on the original soundtrack.

After lingering on this view for a few seconds, the camera lens moves slightly to the right to reveal a single-storey, L-shaped building, with a small parking lot containing a pick-up truck. Another single-story building, parallel with the street outside, is located on the far side of the parking lot.
Thus it becomes clear that the cameraman filmed the video continuously from a vantage point either in or on the building, which obviously overlooks all these features, including, presumably, the plateau itself.
street in Nazlet el-Samman where the video was taken turns out to be Abo Hool
El Seiady. The single-storey building and parking lot are easily matched with
corresponding features further along the same street. This match is confirmed
from a picture taken by the author very close to the same spot in 2008.
we now go on to establish what exactly the camera was looking at on the plateau?
Rodney Hale created an overhead projection of the location with the camera angles
of the various fixed points marked. Combining this with the suggested angle of
elevation of the plant machinery seen in the darkness, brought us to a more or
less precise spot on the plateau. This turns out to be an area immediately in
front of the Sphinx, on a road loop, close to where it joins a road leading down
from the Great Pyramid.
the nocturnal activity caught on video at 2am on April 28, 2010, can be determined
to have been about 220 yards (200 metres) away from the cameraman positioned either
on or in a building on the east side of Abo Hool El Seiady. But could we now identify
the property from which the video was shot? Using the angle of the single storey,
L-shaped building seen in the video we were able to gain an exact fix on the position
of the cameraman. It turned out to be a property where new agers are known to
stay as guests. I made inquiries and established that on the night the video was
taken a foreign national was staying here. I am told that he and his wife are
friends of the individual who first promoted the video as evidence of a conspiracy
at Giza just hours after it was taken on April 28, 2010.
Clearly, the secret diggings video, 5 minutes and 30 seconds long, was not taken by someone who had sneaked on to the plateau to capture on film priceless Atlantean artefacts from the Hall of Records being shipped on to a low loader by a heavy forklift vehicle. This fantasy scenario is at odds with the simple facts at hand, and they tell us that the video was taken from the comfort of a building well away from the plateau. If so, then why spin the idea that this man is now on the run and in fear of his life because he made this video? If this truly is the case, then what are the real fruits of his labours? Certainly not the video we see before us today.
Rodney Hale overlays the video imagery with the scene from the same building in Abo Hool El Seiady. The perspective right of the single-storey bulding is stretched slightly to account for the cameraman being slightly south of the position of the photo taken by the author from a roof top balcony in the same building. It confirms that the nocturnal activity of April 28, 2010, occurred in the vicinity of the loop road immediately in front of the Sphinx Temple.
Complete waveform of the ambient soundtrack for the secret diggings video of April 28, 2010. It is made up of five 1 minute, 6 second looped sections dubbed in afterwards.
Since the sound was a loop it could be a recording of anything and just dubbed on. I think it was possibly a sound recording taken from a nearby work site, as one hears a vehicle driving close to the microphone, an effect you just would not get when recording from a distance. So the sound is misleading.
The jumps erected by the Red Bull team in the period leading up to the X-Fighters event of May 14, 2010, are located in the same area as the nocturnal activity filmed on April 28, 2010.
The Red Bull team erected numerous structures in front of the Sphinx Temple, including scaffolding platforms, tall lighting towers and large portals supporting banners and signs. It is work that would have taken place night and day in the weeks leading up to the event. Perhaps the loud bang heard coming from the plateau at 10am on April 28 was a large piece of the design crashing to the ground.
all this is correct, then the video footage being spun as dramatic evidence of
a dark conspiracy at Giza is not what it seems. Nor can this nocturnal activity
have anything to do with the discovery to the southeast of the Sphinx of a 100-feet
(30-metre) deep shaft cut into the bedrock, which some have speculated might be
connected with the search for the fabled Hall of Records. Like the significance
of the secret diggings video filmed during the early hours of April 28, 2010,
such speculations are groundless, as are claims that a conspiracy is afoot at
a video of behind the scenes action for the Red Bull X-Fighters event at Giza
in 2010. Note the stands and light towers in the exact same area as the heavy
forklift vehicle seen in the nighttime video of April 28, 2010.
