LOS ANGELES –– FuseFX, a full-service, award-winning visual effects company with studios in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Vancouver, Montréal, Toronto, and Bogotá, has announced its acquisition of Rising Sun Pictures (RSP), a world-renowned, high-end visual effects studio headquartered in Adelaide, Australia.
Rising Sun Pictures, founded in 1995 by Tony Clark, Gail Fuller, and Wayne Lewis, offers a full suite of visual effects services and has a long heritage of creating world-class visual effects for many of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster movies and streaming content. Over its 25-year history, RSP has established itself as one of the world's elite visual effects studios.
Rising Sun Pictures Co-Founder Tony Clark will continue to lead the studio and operate under the Rising Sun Pictures brand. Together, the combined companies have nearly 800 artists at eight locations across the globe. The partnership represents the combining of two great teams, both bringing world-class expertise from their respective fields.
There will be no operational changes to the RSP business and the team will look to add talent after a recent expansion of the Adelaide headquarters that provides the studio with a capacity of 270 crew.
