The Illusion Almanac: Creating The Matrix Resurrections

Announcing the publication of the latest issue of the filmcraft magazine The Illusion Almanac. Focusing exclusively on a single motion picture or streaming show and illustrated with a selection of stunning imagery, each issue boasts in-depth coverage of some of the craft disciplines involved in the production.

Issue 2 of The Illusion Almanac focuses exclusively on the visual effects of Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Matrix Resurrections. Creator Graham Edwards conducted around eight hours of in-depth interviews with key personnel including production visual effects supervisor Dan Glass and supervisors from lead visual effects vendor DNEG. Other VFX interviewees include Framestore, One of Us, BUF, RISE and Turncoat Pictures, plus volumetric capture providers Volucap, screen graphics specialists Studio C and linguist Andrew Glass who expanded the classic Matrix code set.

The Matrix is still one of my favourite films of all time,” says Graham Edwards. “Seeing the latest instalment in the cinema was like eating a big slab of the coolest cake around, and the icing on top was getting to chat with the entire visual effects team about how they brought Lana Wachowski’s vision to the screen. The work is phenomenal and I can’t wait for people to read about how it was done.”

The Illusion Almanac: Creating The Matrix Resurrections is available as an 90-page* digital magazine formatted for Kindle. Download it now from Amazon online stores worldwide – just search for ‘illusion almanac.’ No Kindle? No problem – the Kindle app is free to download for IOS, Android and desktop.
