This is an extensively-updated version of a flash I submitted previously. The general consensus was that it was pretty cool, but ruined by cheesy stick figures and poor sound quality. So, I listened, went back to the drawing board, and frame-by-frame erased the stick figures and drew regular bodies. I also found a better quality audio track, which had to be tweaked to match the original syncing.
The Animatrix SE (Special Edition), not to be confused with "The Animatrix" DVD created by the creators of the real Matrix trilogy, is an animated version of the original Matrix movie trailer. I wanted to create a stylized black & white version that looked more like traditional animation, where each cell is hand-drawn, instead of drawing a couple of objects and letting the computer rotate/move/scale them. I hope you enjoy!
