Trickster is a small Live-action short film based on the Matrix movie, it’s a fan-made film to see how far we can go with our skills in Film making and Visual effects.
The project was born in 2013 when Antonio, a friend of mine, suggested to make a video with a Sentinel 3D model that i made some time ago for fun. I was hooked since the beginning with the idea, i wrote a small synopsis and then a 3 page script, the project started to grow more than i expected. At the beginning we only thought of making a small visual effects integration video and then we ended up with a 3 minute live action short film.
This project was made in Colombia, and it was shot near Bogotá using a GH3 Camera and some Rokinon Lenses.
I want to thank Alejandro Ramírez for helping me along the project until the End with his enormous talent, and the talent of his musician and sound team (his website: alejandroramirezrojas.blogspot.com). I also want to thank William Rodriguez from 8088.net/ for his unconditional help offering several tools that we used in post-production. Thanks Brigitte you did a great Job being the sole actress of this short, it was fun to work with you. Daniel, Felipe and my brother Diego with their useful help at the shooting day. And thanks Esteban and the rest of the visual effects team that helped me as well with the postproduction.
