L.A.-based FuseFX has acquired Rising Sun Pictures, a high-profile vfx studio headquartered in Adelaide, Australia. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Rising Sun will still operate under the same brand, and co-founder Tony Clark will continue to lead the studio. There will be no operational changes and the team will look to hire more staff. Responding to a boom in demand for its services, the company recently took over the building next to its Adelaide headquarters and refurbished it to create space for 80 artists.
Founded in 1995, Rising Sun has worked on films including Captain Marvel, Dumbo, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Rabbit, and Alita: Battle Angel. Cartoon Brew has profiled its work on X-Men: Apocalypse and Chinese action feature Animal World.
