Adelaide, Australia — Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) and Flinders University today announce the completion of their inaugural ten-week training program in visual effects. Students from across Australia participated in the high-quality, work-integrated postgraduate programme, enhancing their creative and practical skills in a professional production environment.
Students spent time at the RSP Studio where supervisors guided them in developing skills in rotoscoping, camera tracking, match-moving and compositing whilst utilising high-quality training materials from a variety of feature films. The students undertook a live-action film shoot and used that material to develop work for their demo reels. Additionally, lectures and tutorials given by representatives from all RSP departments helped students understand the workings of the roles within a VFX company.
