Adelaide-based VFX studio Rising Sun Pictures has expanded its operations by opening a front-end office in Sydney.
The new site will operate out of Fox Studios Australia and support productions located on the lot and surrounding area.
According to the studio, the Sydney site will be fully secure and linked to the company’s main facility in Adelaide via a secure, private data link.
RSP has worked over 100 projects including including X-Men: Apocalypse, Game of Thrones, The Legend of Tarzan, Gods of Egypt, Pan and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
It is also currently working on a variety of productions for clients that include 20thCentury Fox and Paramount.
RSP managing director Tony Clark said that the company creates visual effects for many international productions that also conduct all or a portion of their production activities in Sydney. He said having a local presence would allow RSP it to better support such productions in their early stages.
“It will be very helpful to our clients to have an experienced creative team on hand to assist with planning and shooting,” Clark said. “It will result in a seamless workflow from shoot through to post production.”
RSP said it also planned to support local productions through the Sydney office, noting Australian productions as a growing portion of its work.
