After Neo’s sacrifice, the conflicts between the humans and machines continued in several levels. The Cypherites were an organization of humans that betrayed Zion, Just like Cypher they wished to be connected back to the matrix. Blue Dreamer is the last remaining Ship of the Cypherites, it was commanded by Veil, who was one of the most important members of the traitors. A Girl called Maruth was part of the crew as well, AKA Trickster, she had the mission of spying the cypherites and capture or kill the leader of the organization. Veil somehow knew that her life was in danger, so she tried to meet the machines to deliver herself and her crew to re-insertion into the matrix. Maruth responds by killing all the crew, but when she tried to finish Veil the ship lost control and crashed somewhere outside in the surface. Maruth is the only survivor and her only hope is to be rescued by a Ship from Zion before being found by the sentinels.
User Reviews: This short film is very well made, the shots are nicely framed, the whole piece has a great atmosphere and color to it. The effects are what stands out the most for me. There are several shots were difficult tracking had to be done and the results look beautiful.
There really isn’t much of a story as this is a very short video but the cat and mouse style chase between the human an the machines manages to give the film a very nice pace.
I really dig the VFX work done here as it is a fan made short but it looks totally professional, Hollywood worthy certainly. The shooting location really does help as it totally looks like a post apocalyptic world. Speaking of which, love the color script also, the gloomy, dirty atmosphere from the films is faithfully preserved.
Also, looking at the making of blog I realize that the weapon the girl has is CG. Very impressive!
