Career Opportunities: Launch of first Actors Door Studio feature film project, Rise!

Launching the website for Rise!

Advancing the careers of ADS graduates and students

This week the Actors Door Studio reached a new benchmark with the launching of the website for Rise!, the first feature film currently being developed in collaboration with our Film Acting and Film Production program.

The project is the creation of ADS studio director, Fay Beck. Fay will also produce the film with Martina Avogadri through their film production company, Aberrant Gene Films. Rise! will feature select ADS graduates and alumni as cast and crew. The production is excited to have on board animator and previsualisation artist Juraj Zuban, a graduating student at ADS. Juraj has worked on many Disney, Marvel and Amazon titles including The One and Only Ivan, Artemis Fowl, Aeronauts, Maleficent 2, Spiderman Far From Home, Dumbo, and Christopher Robin. Another graduating student, Delphine Volny, is also onboard the project. Delphine has an impressive portfolio of films she has worked on as VFX co-ordinator which includes most notably, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Passengers, Pacific Rim: Uprising, Dumbo, and more recently, Artemis Fowl. Additional crew involved in the art department include Graduating student, Ashlin Green, who has worked as VFX co-ordinator on titles such as Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Good Omens, Avenue 5 and Four Kids and It. 

Juraj Zuban created the visualisations for the film

In late September a proof of concept short film, Marava’s Purge was shot as a first step towards realising the feature film project. The proof of concept will aid the production team, which includes current and former ADS students, in attracting collaborators and investors to the feature film project.
