    Sep 2, 2010, 10:59 AM - Men in Black "first contact" picture folder, anyone ever make one? #1

    Hi

    I think I remember years ago there were some replicas made of the pictures Agent K show's J of their first contact with aliens. does anyone remember these? they were the photos of K giving the aliens flowers and some other things.

    were there ever copies made of this? or is it just wishful thinking?

    That would be such a cool addition to my Men in Black stuff... I never thought about it until now.

    I was able to 'extract' and clean up five of the photos from the movie. They are 8" x 10".






    Screen used:




    Now, if I could only find one of these plastic folders. The black one would be easiest to replicate as I can't print on plastic!

    I'm still trying to track down these damn folders. I know I have seen the plastic ones, I thought staples had them, but no luck on my end.

    They used to have the clear plastic ones (at least a few years ago - I've handed reports in in those for school)

    But the one in the movie just looks like your classic three holed paper jog (with the little bendable tabs) that I used back in grade school

    I had a link for where the folders used in the movie were sourced. The company is now out of business and I think I deleted the link. I can't find it anymore.

    I've created another three photos of the World Fair saucers and globe for the set. Although not screen seen, I just took some photos of the sites and manipulated them to match the rest by adding grain and messing about with exposure etc.

    So I have to chime in here.

    I am extremely skeptical of other people making paper props BUT Marcus makes truly amazing works of art. I own several of his works and he astounds me all the time with his talent. As I said in my PM, well done!

    IIRC, there was an auction several years back where MIB stuff was sold. There were photos of the front and back of the folders and you could make out the name of the company that made the original folders on the back.

    I tracked down the company at the time, but they'd stopped making those particular folders and when I checked back about a year later, the company itself was out of business.

    Great work... With a nice Visit Card and Id Cards, it will be a nice set... How about a planetary passport?!?

    Well, is your site updated, Kurtyboy?

    I think I should save some money and make a big order the next time...

    Don't suppose anyone can remember the name of the folder company name, or the name of the style of folder etc?
