If I was to create a movie in which there should be a scene with a hacker in front of his computer, I'd never hire professional designers and animators to create fancy videos that can be played back on the computer said hacker is working on. Instead, I'd just run make on the Linux kernel, unplug the keyboard and let the actor hit it as fast as he can. Should look professional enough.

    Some films and shows have caught on. I think girl with the dragon tattoo did reasonably well at portraying computer work/hacking although it's been a long time since I've seen that.
