A single, big-budget Hollywood blockbuster represents the sum total of thousands of man hours of work, endless rehearsals, and hushed conversations between actors, producers and directors about the direction of the film. This of course means that statistically, some pretty interesting stuff happens behind the scenes of most films that we, the public, never really get to hear about. Join us as we take a look at the filming of The Matrix franchise to discuss some of the more unusual things that happened when the cameras weren't rolling. Without boring you about the details of the book, which amongst other things discusses the idea of any sufficiently realistic simulation being indistinguishable from reality, it's considered an important, yet fairly dense piece of postmodern philosophy. There's a scene in The Matrix where a fully laden attack helicopter explodes into the side of a building in super slow-motion, causing the ripple of an explosion to travel across the front of the sheer glass building before it all shatters simultaneously. The Wachowskis wanted to make that scene the "definitive action scene" and tasked their special effects team with studying everything from the physics of fluid dynamics to how various glass reacts to being exploded by a helicopter to make it look as accurate and awesome as possible.
