Film Family Tree – Where films come from

April 17, 2012

This is my ‘Film Family Tree’. I chose to use the film ‘Matrix’ as  a starting point and from there found films that have influenced it in terms of style, concept and philosophy. It had roots in both sci-fi features as well as Japanese Anime, as well as surrealist films such as The Truman Show and Alice in Wonderland. The pale blue bubbles are the end of the tree, as they are the television shows and films that have in turn been influenced by the Matrix and other films of a similar genre.

I found researching the Tree really interesting, as I found out not only more about the influences and concepts behind films such as the Matrix, but it also allowed me to find out more about films and animations I may not have known about before.
