Australian Impacts Business Rising Sun Pictures Bought by FuseFX
Increasing Sun Pictures, among the world’s best-known visual impacts companies, has actually been gotten by FuseFX, a U.S. results business owned by EagleTree Capital. The move comes at a time when Australian film and production services sectors are growing due to the nation’s action to the COVID-19 crisis.
The agreement was revealed on Rising Sun’s website. Deal terms were not revealed.
Rising Sun Pictures, which is based in Adelaide and Sydney, and has dealt with films consisting of “Mortal Kombat,” “Video game of Thrones,” “Thor: Ragnarok” and Chinese smash hit “The 8 Hundred,” said that there will be no operational changes to its service. Rising Sun co-founder Tony Clark will continue to lead the studio and it will still operate under the Increasing Sun Pictures brand name. The combined FuseFX and Increasing Sun business have almost 800 artists at 8 locations around the world.
“Our vision for Increasing Sun Pictures is to be a cornerstone component of the next generation worldwide full-service visual impacts business, and with the FuseFX partnership, we can attain this vision to guarantee that we remain at the leading edge of visual results production and stay a relied on imaginative partner to our customers,” stated Clark in a statement. “RSP will embark on an expansion strategy over the next couple of years, and we’re grateful to be partnering with (FuseFX creator and CEO) David Altenau and the group at FuseFX to assist completely recognize RSP’s potential.”
The relocation was invited by the South Australian state federal government. “South Australia is taking pleasure in a golden era in the production of movie, television and streaming services, and the choice by FuseFX to invest in Adelaide vindicates the Marshall Government’s ambitious technique,” said minister for development and abilities, David Pisoni.
Australia has recovered from the coronavirus far ahead of other parts of the world. International film and TV production and post-production work are being drawn to the nation by generous federal government rewards, which were expanded last year. Australia’s balanced out scheme currently provides a 30% rebate for post, digital and visual effects production. That is even more boosted by an additional 10% incentive on South Australian PDV work and by the still weak Australian dollar.
To accommodate the inflow, Rising Sun Pictures recently took over a refurbished structure next door to its primary Adelaide centers. That added 480sq m (5,167 sq ft) of space, enough for 80 artists, a cinema-style screening room, and sound-proofed conference and evaluation centers.
FuseFX was founded in 2006 by Altenau, Tim Jacobsen and Jason Fotter. It now supplies full-service visual impacts for episodic tv, function films, commercials, virtual and VR productions. The business has seven studio areas: its flagship studio in Los Angeles, as well as New York, Atlanta, and Vancouver. The company’s studios in Montréal, Toronto, and Bogotá are serviced by Folks VFX.
