Blair Witch Project - didn't the original start that type of paranormal activity style filming.
That's an interesting topic. A lot of people consider Cannibal Holocaust to be the first "Found Footage" movie. However, many others (like me) do not, as the actual found footage in that is not enough to make it a true Found Footage movie.
The Last Broadcast is generally considered the first Found Footage movie. Blair Witch was after that, and many people think Blair Witch was inspired by it. The "X" factor is The St. Francisville Experiment, which was actually made before Blair Witch, but released after it. So whether this was before Blair Witch is debatable.
I realize your question was probably rhetorical, but Found Footage is my favorite sub genre, and cuz it interests me I decided to respond.
