New York native, Poster Posse artist, Robert Bruno has been on tear this year. His work and popularity has exploded and he has some phenomenal officially licensed stuff coming our way real soon. The man never sleeps and his latest piece is for a classic film that fan-boys can NEVER get enough of.
The Matrix came out in 1999. It was the brainchild of The Wachowski Brothers and it revolutionized the film industry. It was one of those films that completely changed the way we look at films. The special effects were beyond ground-breaking and really had an affect on how films were made from then on out.
We asked Robert about the project and here is what he had to say: When starting this piece I was a bit intimidated as the Matrix has always been one of my favorite films. I remember being blown away by the groundbreaking sci-fi effects and the origin of the slow motion ‘bullet time’ which is now used in so many films.
The Matrix by Robert Bruno
Having looked at the original film posters for the trilogy I decided to stay away from green, which is so closely associated with the matrix coding used in the films. I wanted to focus on the super mechanical, eroded feel that the first film had so I chose a grey blue and red palette. I tried to get as many scenes in there as possible without overwhelming the overall composition. Hope you enjoy it!
This poster does exactly what it is suppose to do, it makes me wanna watch this movie all over again, which is what I’ll be doing over the weekend! Be sure to follow Robert on TWITTER to stay up to date on new projects and check out his new and improved WEBSITE to see more of his incredible work.
