To demonstrate that a CGI Matrix film was possible, Square Pictures created a short. They took the Aki character from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, gave her a haircut and a different outfit, and animated a fight between her and a "Sentinel" robot from the Matrix series. The finished "Final Flight" also drew on the technological and artistic assets Square had assembled together for their Final Fantasy movie. See more »
Set just before the beginning of The Matrix Reloaded, the crew of the ship Osiris escape a flurry of Sentinels by escaping to the surface where they see the massive drillers begin their descent into Zion. The crew must warn the city before it's too late.
This could have been a spectacular short, but they just don't know what to do. A chunk of the running time is made up of a superfluous fight scene right at the start, and there really isn't much story. The visuals however are amazing (director Andrew R. Jones designed the SFX for Titanic and Superman Returns), even for 2003 standards the motion capture is very photo-realistic.
It's just a shame that it doesn't amount to much.
