'Trickster' - Short Film set in the Matrix Universe

Hot on the heels of hints that a new Matrix Trilogy is in the mix, here's a killer fan short called Trickster in which a lone female resistance soldier armed with one badass lightning cannon fends off a fierce Sentinel out to strip her spine. This indie fan short was written, produced and directed by filmmaker Felix Joleanes and packs a serious dose of Matrixy charm and excellent special effects. 

Here's what the creator had to say about his little tribute project:

"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. This is a non-profit project produced solely for the personal enjoyment of our team. 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."
