Career Profile Junior Pipeline Technical Director at Rising Sun Pictures

After completing a Bachelor of Computer Science at university, Simon Walsh wanted to improve his visual effect skills and get into the industry, so chose to study screen and media at TAFE SA.

For Simon the course provided him with insight into the industry, relevant skills and key contacts.

“It's very different from university; it's much closer to a workplace and has a focus on industry relevant skills.”

Now working at Rising Sun Pictures as a Junior Pipeline Technical Director, Simon is putting the skills he learnt at TAFE SA into practice.

In pipeline, Simon works on parts of the whole project or film with many of his current jobs still in production. So keep your eyes peeled for his name in the movie credits soon.
