Rising Sun Pictures

Three, two, one, action!

It’s not often that Adelaide gets to compete with the likes of Hollywood in the film sector. It’s even less often that Adelaide locals can live in SA but still work in the film industry. So when Rising Sun Pictures are hiring, it’s best to take it when you can.

Rising Sun Pictures, an Adelaide-based film studio with clients ranging from Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros. and Netflix, are on the hunt for a production assistant. This person needs a vested interest in the world of visual effects and an enthusiastic attitude.

This is an entry-level contract position, and you can apply through LinkedIn.
