operate out of Fox Studios Australia and support productions located on the lot
and based in the area.

the company’s main facility in Adelaide and its deep resources for visual
effects design and production. RSP is currently working on a variety of

stages. “It will be very helpful to our clients to have an experienced creative
team on hand to assist with planning and shooting,” Clark said. “It will result
in a seamless workflow from shoot through to post production.”

local filmmakers and producers are based on or near the Fox lot and use it as a
shooting location, for editorial and other production and post-production
activities. Australian productions form a growing portion of RSP’s work. “Our
presence in Sydney will enhance the experience for all of our clients,” Clark
