Here’s where I am this evening:
Answer after the jump.
Managed to crank out a few more today. In the middle of working on the New Asia Customs patch.
Here’s what my library looks like right now: 49 symbols!
Here are the BKGs:
I’ve been on a Total Recall kick lately, and here are some of the fruits of my labor:
Years ago, I had replicated the “New Asia” background extra’s passport cover.
Whilst accurizing that yesterday, I undertook making the UFB seal, so I could make a UFB passport cover…
Having that done, I realized I could easily alter it to replicate the seal seen on the money.
Once that was done, I wondered how easy it would be to replicate the whole bill…
A little Googling revealed that the man on the 1000 is the director’s father (Loren Wiseman, and you can even see his signature to the left of his portrait), who I obviously couldn’t find a good photo of… Barack Obama, on the other hand….
The laurels around the UFB seal on the monetary seal are from the UN logo.
The artist Photoshopped out the president’s US flag lapel pin.
I suspect the UFB seals on the real bills are hot foil stamped.
There appear to be two different kinds of 1000 bill; they have different bottoms.
Not sure who the third guy is, but I’m leaning toward the Dalai Lama.
The Arabic on the bills is particularly wonky; the letters aren’t connected properly.
The Chinese is also suspect, as it appears to repeat itself.
The bills appear to be the same size and shape as US dollar bills, just oriented vertically.
Below, you can see my pieced-together-from-screencaps ‘guide’ on the left, and my replica bill on the right.
Yesterday, I revised my New Asia passport cover, and created Colony and UFB passport replicas.
Screencaptures from the 2012 film, “Total Recall,” showing Quaid’s false UFB and Colony passports.
Before the film was released, we got a look at one of the background extra’s passports:
Here is my replica, based on that photo. You’re gonna need to print this on cardstock, and cut-out the covers and glue them together. The size is a guess, based on the size of a real passport. The inside is blank, as I cannot get a clear image of the fake ones we see on screen. Looks like we’re gonna have to wait until it’s available to rent.
