With newly increased German funding for visual effects companies at both the federal and state level, Rise Pictures is looking to be a partner of choice for international producers.
Rise Pictures is the production unit of Berlin-based Rise Visual Effects Studios, which has made a name for itself as a leading vfx player with its work on such recent films as “Captain America: Civil War,” “Black Panther” and the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War.” Ulrich Schwarz, Rise Pictures’s head of production, said the company’s “aim is to discover high-quality international films and TV series projects for co-production with a budget range of €2 to €15 million ) ($2.5 million to $18 million), or higher, especially with some unique vfx or CGI elements we could tackle.”

Especially attractive for the company are creatively unique projects “that have their own voice and are able to stand out in today’s crowded marketplace – material that delivers a visceral experience, so to speak,” Schwarz added.
As part of the Rise FX group, Rise Pictures is able to offer productions a crucial element: “visual effects at a fraction of the costs of traditional filmmaking” via co-producing and bringing in German financing and/or simply handling effects work.
