The Matrix Reloaded: Car Chase (Original)
This making-of piece divided into 8 segments (i.e. "Oakland Streets and Freeway" (10 minutes, six seconds), "Tour of the Merovingian's Car Garage" (2:08), "Queen of the Road" (3:16), "Arteries of the Mega-City: The Visual Effects of the Freeway Chase" (11:52), "Foresight: Preplanning the Mayhem" (6:29), "Freeway Truck Crash: Anatomy of a Shot" (5:33), "Fate of the Freeway" (1:26), and "Freeway Action Match" (14:22)) covers all elements of that sequence. We see parts of the shoot, preparation methods, the cars and the stunt performers, and the visual effects. "Anatomy" offers narration from Gaeta as he focuses on the execution of the truck crash. "Match" gives us a comparison feature; it shows the final footage on the bottom while we see relevant behind the scenes bits on the top. The latter include storyboards, video footage from the set, pre-vis pieces, and computer art.
