The Matrix Rebooted

The Matrix Rebooted was produced by Nik Nok Media in January 2011 as part of the Virgin Radio Fake Film Festival.  The premiere film project for director Amanda Konkin, it starred Ryan Caron, Alex Vandanathuvayalil, Brendan Albano and Amanda Konkin with original graphics by Michael J. Cohen.

Simulating a movie that was largely inspired by Baudrillard’s treatise Simulacra and Simulation seemed like the perfect way to pay homage to this modern classic! The Matrix is full of powerful images and creative filming techniques that were a lot of fun to explore in this 60 second recreation.
