Evans’ credits span everything from The Dark Knight to Harry Potter, Fast & Furious, and Mission: Impossible. However, the latest addition to the list is arguably one of the most anticipated franchise sequels ever: the fourth entry into Lana and Lilly Wachowski’s sci-fi cyberpunk series: The Matrix Resurrections. In Resurrections, Neo must once again escape from the computer-simulated reality of the title and save his soulmate, Trinity, from the clutches of the machines that created it.
DNEG acted as the lead VFX vendor on The Matrix Resurrections and split over 700 shots across its London, Vancouver, and India facilities, with Evans overseeing the work as DNEG’s VFX Supervisor. “The Matrix is such an iconic series, so it was incredible to get to work on it; I was thrilled when the project landed on my lap!” says Evans. “We had a ton of work to do, with a lot of focus on the film’s real-world scenes. That included fully-CG backgrounds, creature work on the newly introduced synthient characters, and a whole lot more.”
