This was the 5th scene we shot, as it was going to be fairly straight-forward.

The tricky part turned out to be getting the correct shadow across Neo's face. In the original he has a pretty obvious shadow that basically cuts his face in half down the middle. We managed to duplicate this with a second light source, but the light we used to get it was the wrong colour. A bit of time in post production managed to even that out, as you can see in the 200k gif animation below. The Matrix was very green or brown, so we tweaked the colours over to that.
