Career Profile Matchmove and Layout Lead at Rising Sun Pictures

"I studied Advanced Diploma of Screen (specialising in CGI and Visual Effects). I am currently the Matchmove and Layout Lead at Rising Sun Pictures (RSP).

Since finishing my course at TAFE I've worked on The Great Gatsby, The Seventh Son, The Wolverine, I, Frankenstein, Sharkar's Ai, Anzac Girls and most recently X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

During my studies I was taught industry standard software, cutting edge techniques and acquired lots of hands on experience. Towards the end of my last year at TAFE, my lecturers contacted RSP and showed them my work. Luckily enough I was offered two days of Camera Tracking training at RSP. After that training I was given the opportunity of another two months of training.

Due to the flexibility of TAFE's assessment criteria I was able to continue training at RSP while I finished my qualification. A few days before gaining my qualification I was employed at RSP as a Camera Tracker on "The Great Gatsby" and I've been at RSP ever since. If it were not for the wonderful people at TAFE I would not be where I am today!"
