... Would you care to elaborate on the mistakes you found in the flyer I had posted? I knew the photo wasn't exact, but I reconstructed all the text in adobe illustrator directly on top of a medium resolution image of an original prop, so everything should be spaced perfectly. But if there are any errors I would like to correct them, especially the "wrong fonts". Thanks.
Yes, of course I'll help you. So let's compare your flyer with the originals! Following you can see:
- the flyer with bright
blue background is a scan of an original flyer used in scenes with Eric Stoltz (with the inaccurate clock tower pic)
- the flyer with darker
blue background is a scan of a copy
of an original flyer screen used by Michael J. Fox. Actress Claudia Wells ("Jennifer Parker") use these flyer copies at her autograph sessions.
- the flyer with white background is yours.
If you compare your "CLOCK STOPPED AT 10:04" phrase with the originals, you can see your letters are too wide, particulary the letters "L", "S" and "T". And your number "0" is too thin. The edge on top left of the number "1" is vertical on the original, yours is transverse. The horizontal line of the number "4" is too low on your flyer.
The letter "C" of the large title letters: The beginning and the end of the letter is transverse.
The first three page numbers of the left columns are cropped at their right sides on the original flyer. It seems the designer of the original flyer commited a blunder. And the page number in the fourth line, right column, is a "7", not a "11". I think your mistake was to use for comparing the newspapers made in 1989 (second movie). But they are slightly different from the newspapers made in 1985 (first movie).
As you can see, the spaces between the letters on your flyer have always the same width: zero. To justify your text, you stretched only the spaces between the words. But as you can see on the original flyers, sometimes the spaces between the letters are stretched too.
I don't know, what a font you used, but the most accurate font for this text I found, is "Stratford Medium".
Comparing your phrase "Plans To Launch Tests of New Toll System Here" your letters seem to be too large (the drawing of the letters, not the font size). Look e. g. the letter "o" in the word "To", then you can see it.
Your Cent character is centered, but should be on the bottom. The slash in this character is larger and has a more acute angle on the original flyer.
Let's compare the words below the clock tower pic. Please note: The following comparing is just my own opinion. Maybe I'm mistaken.
First column: If I look on Claudia Wells' flyer copy, I recognize "murder" instead of "warded" on your flyer. The first letter of the word "renewals" is lower-case. The word "to" seems to have a dash at the end ("to-") and the last word could be an "if" or "of", not an "as".
Second column: Perfect!
Third column: Your Chairman "Pollak" looks more like a "Poliak" in originals. And the social organization seems to be "new".
And here is a resized (shrinked) pic of my selfmade clock tower pic. The blue background is just to show the lookout when it's printed out on a blue paper. My original has a white background. I've been trying to get a more copy-like lookout. If you compare with screen used flyers: The pic on the flyers looks more like a copy of a newspaper photo. It's not very accurate, if it looks exactly perfect like a newspaper photo.
I hope my annotations were helpful and you understood everything.
