Capitalising on a steady rise in international film and television production in Australia, Rising Sun Pictures, the Academy Award®-nominated, Adelaide-based visual effects studio, has expanded its operation 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 based in the area. 

The Sydney site will be fully secure and linked via a secure, private data link to the company’s main facility in Adelaide and its deep resources for visual effects design and production. RSP is currently working on a variety of projects for clients including 20th Century Fox and Paramount, among others.  

RSP co-founder and Managing Director Tony Clark says the Sydney office will be an important creative resource to current and future clients. He notes that the company creates visual effects for many international productions that also conduct all or a portion of their production activities in Sydney. Having a local presence will allow 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 will also support native Australian productions through its Sydney office. Many local filmmakers and producers are based on or near the Fox lot and use it as a shooting location, for editorial and other production and post-production activities. Australian productions form a growing portion of RSP’s work. “Our presence in Sydney will enhance the experience for all of our clients,” Clark says.
