(SPOILERS for the horror ARG. If you want to get immersed in the story without the behind-the-scenes start: HERE)
One of the people on the reddit AMA said "...I'm not buying this alternate character you're telling me that you've created as an experiment. unless you can explain why you're taking pictures of people three feet from their window."
This is gonna sound mad stupid, but I was not expecting anyone to think that "Alex" saying everything was fake was some kinda meta-ploy to throw people off the scent after his family-murder-finale.
I guess it really shouldn't be a surprise that people wanted some proof.
The idea of "Alex" invading people's privacy is just... real bad. And they were intentionally believable. And super creepy.
here's the proof that any photo I've posted as part of the ARG was done so with fully informed consent.

My wife and I painted the room together IRL, but the loud fight scenario was fake.
Also, the kid doing the photobombing behind the curtain is my son lol.
|The woman from the 2nd "people watching" pic, my wife. Our son tried to photobomb this one too, but didn't get fully in the frame. Compare to the original post: LINK|
The phone sex never happened, her phone wasn't even on... IRL, she was watching basketball or some shit.
|The woman from the final "people watching" post, my mom. Compare to the original: LINK|
She was actually doing some dishes, and I did accidentally use the flash but that just played into the story nicely.
