    About RISE | Visual Effects Studios

    RISE | Visual Effects Studios was founded in 2007 by Sven Pannicke, Robert Pinnow, Markus Degen and Florian Gellinger in Berlin. The plan was to focus with a small, hand-picked team on German TV and feature film effects – but that plan failed.

    Today, the award-winning company has roughly 100 permanent staff members in addition to 100 freelance artists in Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Cologne and London, making it one of the biggest VFX studios in central Europe. RISE has become "partner in crime" for directors like Tom Tykwer (Babylon Berlin, A Hologram for the King, Cloud Atlas) or Wes Anderson (The French Dispatch), studios like Marvel (WandaVision, The Avengers films, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy etc.), Netflix (, Dark Season 1-3, Stranger Things Season 3) and HBO (Westworld, Lovecraft Country). Its sister production company RISE PICTURES develops its own original content and co-produces films and series for an international audience such as Stowaway and Dragon Rider.

    RISE acts as collaborator for episodic series as well as television and feature film, from early concept to mastering, concept art and previs, every day on set, during effects production and animation, as an advisor for the Digital Intermediate process. Our supervisors are reliable, creative partners for directors, production designers and directors of photography alike – from the first to the final step of the way.
