US “LOOK” PROP CURRENCY / MONEY

 

prop cash/ fake money

February 4, 2011

When looking for prop cash, several options have been available to the industry. Some products we have found available on the market, are either printed larger 25%+ than actual bills, or smaller (75% of an actual bills size). Other safety measures include printing actual US bills in black and white, but again not one to one scale. Although this complies with US law, the finished product looses it realism when filmed, unless camera angles, lenses, and post production editing is used. The other readily available product is custom designed notes. Once used almost exclusively by large productions, bills were unique in design, and made exclusive to each production. These look like cash, not necessarily US, but will have unique attributes, wording, and design. This later method was commonly used, but in later years, the audience has become more educated, and is looking for more realism. 


Our “US LOOK” currency has been custom designed by our company prop artist.  Actual images of US currency were used during the creation and layout process. Our artist spent over 2 years building our product line from scratch to emulate actual currency on stage, or on film, yet not be able to pass in public. Our bills are coloured (matching closely the colours used on actual notes), and cut one to one scale.




Again our company focus is to supply independent or student film and theatrical productions with professional props at reasonable rates. Our currency has been broken down into 2 distinct products:


  1. 1)BLANK FILLED BUNDLES -  These bundles have a double sided bill on top and bottom, and blank bills in between. Unlike other products on the market, each blank filler note has a custom border printed in the same colour as the top and bottom notes, so the bundle does not get the “WHITE” sided look. These bundles are fillers, used in the “briefcase” scene, or for filling a bank truck, bank vault, casino etc. 

  2. 2)100 NOTE BUNDLE -  These bundles are 100 double sided bills bundles together. This allows for the bundle to be flipped through, or broken down and split apart.


We both rent and sell this product.

We carry $10.00, $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00 “US LOOK” bills
