Adelaide, South 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 program, 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.
