The Art of the Matrix



In stock



Out of print. The dustjacket is worn, but the book itself is a sharp copy of a title rarely found without bumps and other flaws.

The full script presented with over 600 black & white storyboards by Steve Skroce, color storyboards by Tani Kunitake & Colin Grant, conceptual drawings by Geof Darrow. And three deleted scenes.

From the publisher:

One of the most successful films of all time, winner of four Academy Awards - Best Visual Effects, Best Film Editing, Best Sound, Best Sound Effects Editing - 'The Matrix' has proven to be nothing short of a phenomenon. The tale of Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves), a computer hacker forced to confront his special destiny in the salvation of mankind, challenged our perceptions of reality and expanded our expectations of what a movie could be.
