How is management perceived at Rising Sun Pictures?

Pros

For the most part my fellow artists were great to work with. Kind, knowledgeable, patient. Some of the work that individuals create is amazing.

Cons

Doing low budget Chinese films that nobody will ever see. The production team are clueless! The management around production is terrible. Lots of politics. If you want to last, you need to make friends in high places, kiss butt and play along with the inane ideas of upper production management. They have lost A LOT of older staff. Very few people stick around at RSP. There is a high burnout rate.

Advice to Management

Wake up and do things differently. Get rid of these ego ridden production people and get people who know what they are doing. You have terrible people managing other people - that just causes a ripple down of pain and discontent.

What are co-workers like at Rising Sun Pictures?

Pros

RSP has a great team of people on the floor. Everybody is friendly and welcoming. Because of it's size you will get more responsibility at RSP than at one of the larger vfx studios.

Cons

Stuated in Adelaide, can be too quiet, small for some people's taste.

What is the salary like at Rising Sun Pictures?

Pros

Amazing pay. Excellent recruitment staff, but still waiting for tax return a year later. Left me high and dry.

Cons

Brutal, nasty HOD in 2D & comp. RSP will work you to death, 6 times a week, 15 hours a day. The former head of 2D (now at a nearby studio) especially, was cold, robotic and manipulative. The fact that he had clear favourites didn't help my motivation either. Still waiting for tax return a year later. I had to pay double tax in my country!

Advice to Management

Kudos to humane recruiters, but HOD's in 2D and comp made my life at RSP a nightmare that I want to forget forever. If you make your producers and HODs more humane, artists would WANT to push for you. Until then, you can never reach the heights of a studio such as Double Negative, who are dynamic and can adapt to stressful situations very easily.

Amazing pay.

What are working conditions like at Rising Sun Pictures?

Pros

After five full minutes of rumination I can't think of any.

Cons

Be wary before letting them drag you to Australia. They might gloss over the cost of living to give you a low ball offer. Also, the office is dirty, and during my time, they refused to run the A/C during blistering summers (too expensive) or buy enough toilet paper.

Advice to Management

If this place is only profitable when run to the lowest standards, perhaps it should shut down.
