STUDY VFX AND LEARN FROM WORLD-CLASS VFX ARTISTS

Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) and the University of South Australia (UniSA) have joined together to deliver accredited courses. In classrooms set up to mirror real-world production environments and with instructors who are working professionals, the award-winning visual effects studio rigorously trains students in the technologies and techniques they’ll need to succeed in an expanding global film industry. Since the program’s inception in 2015, dozens of aspiring artists have used the studio’s undergraduate and graduate-certificate courses, as stepping-stones to their first industry jobs…many of them at RSP.

When you study VFX through UniSA you will:

• Gain the technical and professional skills required to enter the global VFX industry
• Be mentored by industry leaders and professionals at Rising Sun Pictures (RSP)
• Develop your own demo reel shots under the guidance of RSP VFX artists
• Attend unique networking opportunities with RSP staff and the broader VFX community
• Work on feature film shots to real world deadlines in a production environment
• Learn from professionals and educators who are Houdini Certified Trainers

COURSES

Under Graduate
Media Arts Degree (Visual Effects Specialisation)

Post Graduate
Graduate Certificate in Compositing and Tracking
Graduate Certificate in Dynamic Effects and Lighting

Within each qualification, students gain exposure to professional practice standards through learning in a production studio, and using industry standard software under the supervision of experienced visual effects artists. Upon completion of the programs, graduates have a clear understanding of what it takes to succeed in this highly competitive and rewarding industry, as well as an invaluable connection to one of Australia’s leading visual effects companies. Together, these two graduate certificates and Media Arts Degree, provide students with the required skills and knowledge to seek and gain employment as an entry-level visual effects artist.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS:

“I really enjoyed my time learning at RSP. Not only for the actual learning side, including the films we worked on & aiming for high-quality with detailed feedback, or learning an actual studios pipeline, but for all the amazing artists I met. I had many interesting conversations, so many were willing to give advice & show interest that I was always learning new things. ‘The day in the Life chats’ are also a great opportunity to learn about every department, & getting a sit-down & 2 presentations by the recruiters gives graduates an extra step-up in knowing what to put in a job application. This course gave me a level of confidence in my skills that I’ve never had before & for that, I’m forever grateful. Thank you RSP for investing in the future of juniors & in turn the future of your company & the Australian industry.”
Monika Batchelor, Student, Graduate Certificate in Visual Effects, September 2016

“(I enjoyed) the whole experience. Having access to industry professionals on a daily basis. Having each department explained to us and how it fits into the production pipeline. Working on quality material for lessons, learning real-world expertise at real-world time requirements. Best exposure to future work environment you could have.”
Drew White, Student, Graduate Certificate in Visual Effects, July 2015

“I really enjoyed being included in the company, surrounded by awesome people who all had similar goals as myself – that’s both RSP employees and students alike! It was awesome having teachers who not only shared their skills, but also gave advice about the industry in general. I really got the sense that they cared in what we achieved.”
