Skip to comments.Sam Bacile And His Low-Budget Anti-Muslim Movie: Is It All A Hoax?
Posted on 09/17/2012 5:22:04 PM PDT by Renfield
...Bacile claims to have made "Innocence of Muslims" on a budget of $5 million with the help of 100 Jewish donors, but one look at the film clips on YouTube will call that claim into question. The movie appears to have been shot using a consumer-grade DV camcorder with amateur actors, fake backgrounds and cheap sets. The lighting and sound are of equally low quality. In Hollywood dollars, $5 million may be considered low-budget, but if the filmmaker really spent that much money on this shoddy work, it's his donors who should be doing the protesting.
Meanwhile, efforts to uncover the film's anonymous funders have so far turned up nothing. Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent for the Atlantic, tweeted on Wednesday: "I would love to know more about Mr. Sam Bacile, whom no Jew I know has ever heard, and his 100 mysterious backers."
That's assuming there even is a film. In early July, two 13-minute clips were posted on a YouTube account by someone with the username Sam Bacile, but no one has come forward claiming to have seen the finished product. Moreover, IMDb lists nothing for the project or Bacile himself, to say nothing of the supposed 59 actors and 45 crew members who worked on it....

George Romero shot the original “Night of the Living Dead” for less than $300,000.
And its far superior to this amateur-hour train wreck.
Sam Bacile not to be confused with his brother I.M.Bacile.
I don’t think there is a real movie—in the end this will have been made only to cause the outrage in the Islamic world. It was done as A) a scam, B) part of Obamas re-election, C) to get the USA to help Israel, D) as part of some bigger plot. Maybe I need to switch to de-caf.
Is It All A Hoax?
I watched the 14 minute clip (there is a 20 minute one also).
It is blatantly obvious that someone took the original video, and did some audio dubbing, especially when the main character is asked “what is your name” and he responds “Mohammed”.
IMHO, the original video must not have made mention of Muhammed’s name. SO... someone dubbed it in before uploading it to YOUTUBE.
HOWEVER, it is not what sparked the rioting and murders.
Anyway it’s a good hoax showing the islamic lunacy , the fake “arab spring” and the failed ObamaSS’ policy
Hoax or whatever, it is his right to make it and distribute it.The rage should be against the muzzies who are going ape**** over the truth. They are what they are, the sooner the world realizes this, the better
It’s a great hoax, if indeed it is.
We need one of these “films” every year or so, to put the Troglydytes in the mid east on to the streets and get them rioting.
How to control the Arabs? Keep them weak, divided, and agitated. Shouldn’t be hard to do - its their natural inclination.
Stupid American Imbecile
People getting killed as a result of these actions do not matter - abridging rights is all that matters.

ACAB is an acronym shared by the Muslim Brotherhood and OWS.
That was my first thought a week ago. I think I speculated accordingly here. I have no idea what to beleive. All I know for sure is we are standing knee-deep in b.s.
I know how to spell believe, typing is another matter...
This is Jew-hating disinformation. The real story - as much as is known - is easily available on FR and elsewhere on line.
O'Really had an Islamic woman on tonight, she said the riots don't have anything to do with Islam or religion at all. Charles Krauthammer said the riots are about Obama's failed promises after his inflammatory Cairo speech.
i agree. this doesn’t pass the smell test.
...for many reasons.
a convicted fraud, turns government snitch.
he’s on probation, which he seems to have violated.
yet, both he AND LIBERAL GOOGLE,
both REFUSE to remove the video,
that incites riots globally ?
and, there seems to be no real movie.
and the actual footage is clumsily dubbed.
simply to make it “offensive” to Muslims.
...does the government snitch on probation,
seem to have a real interest or past history,
in this subject, like Pipes, Gellar, Spencer, Bostom?
there are LOTS of videos on youtube,
that are MORE offensive.
(like Anne B., burning her bacon Koran.)
...but, if Obama needed one video,
that the owner WOULDN’T remove.
(perhaps as a reason to release the “Blind Sheikh”???)
...this would fit the bill.
Occam’s Razor. i’d be happy to hear something else,
that would fit why this government snitch on probation,
would do this in the first place,
and then, (along with LIBERAL Google),
REFUSE to remove it.
