AND THE WINNER IS...

We are thrilled that Gravity won so many Oscars at the 86th Academy Awards, including the Visual Effects category, to Tim Webber, Chris Lawrence, David Shirk and Neil Corbould. RSP created the climactic re-entry sequence, and are honoured to have the work acknowledged as the year's best.

As we enter 2014, we're busy on a number of high profile projects, yet to be announced, along with our ongoing role on X-Men: Days of Future Past. Our venture into long form production continues with "Deadline Gallipoli", produced by Matchbox Pictures and Sam Worthington's Fullclip. The First World War drama commences shooting in the coming months and we are working with the team on the most efficient way to plan and realise the effects for the miniseries.

Please take the time to check out the interview with RSP's Art Director, Nick Pill - Nick's been with RSP Since Charlotte's Web and is our first point of call when working our clients to condense their creative ideas into actual images which our production team use as a visual guide to define the processes going forward through our toolset. He's also much more normal looking that his caricature suggests!

Australia remains a world-class destination for shooting and post, and the continuing fall of the Australian dollar brings greater value to productions who choose to work here. The upswing in activity around the studios certainly indicates that many are experiencing this - I hope you'll take the time to see for yourselves.

If you would like more information or would like to talk to us about a project, please don't hesitate in contacting us on +61 8 8400 6400 or by email, vfxinfo@rsp.com.au.
