The Second Renaissance Part I
I'll admit it - when "The Matrix" came out in 1999 (10 years ago!), I waited in line for 3 hours to get tickets to opening night. I didn't read any reviews or plot summaries of the film before I went, so without knowing what to expect, I was truly sucked in and became obsessed. "The Animatrix" is a collection of shorts from famous animators set in the world of "The Matrix". The shorts vary greatly from each other in style and tone, but they all celebrate the universe that the Wachowski brothers have created. My favorite is "The Second Renaissance Part 1," which serves as a prequel to the film and shows how the machines began their rule over humans.

I spend my time at Joost digging into our vast video library and finding the most compelling content to share with our users. I'm constantly surprised at the diversity and quality of our content - from our classic Godzilla film library to our insanely deep music video collection - there's always something interesting and unique to watch. I work closely with our partners and an amazing Joost team to come up with creative ways to package together and promote our content on-site and off-site - whether it's a video quiz about the original Star Trek series, a countdown of the best Naruto anime fight scenes, or our Joost music playlists. I've worked in TV production and digital video for the past 9 years, and I live in Manhattan with my imaginary dog Frankie.
