The Story of Keanu Reeves' "The Matrix" Costume

Kim Barrett Matrix Costume Designer

In this week's Academy Originals, costume designer Kym Barrett takes us through her process of creating Keanu Reeves' sleek Neo suit for "The Matrix Reloaded." It turns out making the costume was just as futuristic as the trilogy. 

"Often we're using 3-D printing, we're using all kinds of new textile technologies," Barrett explained, adding, "we're inventing machines to do things."
