In 2019 RISE was asked to dive deep into Stanley Kubrick's world: Based on the bestselling book by Steven King, "Doctor Sleep" picks up the story first brought to the big screen in the cult classic "The Shining", decades later. Supervisors Benjamin Burr, Florian Gellinger and their teams recreated iconic environments in great detail, researched in an effort of VFX archeology, like the Overlook Hotel, the bloody elevator seen from various angles and the snowy hedge maze.

"Doctor Sleep" is now out on DVD, Blu-Ray and all Video-on-Demand platforms.
The work at RISE Stuttgart was kindly supported by MFG Filmförderung Baden-Württemberg.

#Berlin announces new funding program for the German capital's #visualeffects industry!

As shooting with large crews has become unthinkable in 2020 and most likely beyond, #VFX provide a necessary tool to maintain the same visual esthetics audiences around the world have come to enjoy while keeping teams and talent safe from harm. It also enables more productions to afford dragons, fairies, aliens and robots on their payroll.

Thanks to the amazing support of the Berlin Senate, and the regional film fund Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, films can now claim 20% on all local VFX spend.
This can be combined with the German Federal Film Fund's DFFF II fund and will help strengthen the digital backbone of German film making.

Berlin launches €2m funding programme for city’s VFX sector

Grants of up to €500,000 per project will be awarded to cover 20% of the production costs

This spring we were invited to help bring one of our favorite TV shows to life, the 3rd season of WESTWORLD by masterminds Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan for HBO.
Our VFX supervisor Jonathan Weber and his team designed everything from flying gunship drones to the Rehoboam super computer, digital make up effects that literally crawl under your skin, both when playing with fire and helping otherwise perfectly healthy actors pretend to be unarmed. RISE added more mayhem to one of the physical final showdowns adding blood and muzzle flashes.
