“Matrix Resurrections” honors the legacy of the earlier films “The Matrix,” “Matrix Reloaded” and “Matrix Revolutions” whose journey began in 1999 and will set standards in the modern science fiction genre just as the first bullet time effects from “The Matrix” once did.
To fulfill the vision, camera systems and new processing methods had to be developed specifically for the film. As a technology provider, Volucap worked closely with Dan Glass and Lana Wachowski to develop new processes to bring the aura of the earlier films into the new digital age.
Some scenes of “The Matrix Resurrections” were recorded in the volumetric studio, while most shots were filmed directly on-site using camera systems especially made for the film. Volucap achieved this by constructing mobile volumetric camera systems on tracks, cables and cranes. The first handheld camera system was also used operating simultaneously with eight film cameras. A highlight was the world’s first volumetric underwater studio which was built in the space of two months in a seven-metre-deep pool.
