Morpheus: “You have to let it all go, Neo. Fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free your mind.”
Animal Logic worked closely with directors Andy and Larry Wachowski, producers Andrew Mason and Barrie Osborne, and production designer Owen Paterson to ensure that the company's design of the matrix code and production of one hundred effects would complement their vision.
It was a project they would collaborate on for 15 months. This included creating the highly recognisable matrix code; the three agents comprised entirely of code whom Neo sees in the hotel corridor; the creation of the trace programme in the opening sequence; the screen inserts for the various monitors and gadgetry appearing throughout the film; the white-hot energy of the gun lightning effect, and more.
