Two decades have passed since The Matrix kung-fu kicked its way into cinemas and blew our minds, yet its huge, out of the blue success has lost little of its impact. The idea that major studio would give $63 million to a pair of relatively unknown film-makers to make an original sci-fi action film feels as unlikely today as it did in 1999, but that is exactly what happened to Lana and Lilly Wachowski. And it might not have happened it if weren’t for the siblings’ savvy and unprecedented use of storyboards — many of which are available to buy here at Prop Store. The Matrix wasn’t just remarkable for being a film that was storyboarded before it was green lit. It was a movie that was green lit thanks to its storyboards.
