Rising Sun Pictures Taps Patterson to Lead New Film Production Division


Mark Patterson
Rising Sun Pictures has hired Mark Patterson as head of production and development for its new production division, Rising Sun Entertainment. Patterson, who has a deep background as a film producer, executive producer and development executive, will develop film projects with Rising Sun participating as either producer or co-producer.

“Mark has a lot of experience as a producer, he knows the market well, and he is well respected in the Australian film community and internationally,” said Rising Sun Pictures CEO Michael Taylor. “We are very happy to have him help us with this new venture.”

Rising Sun Pictures is looking to partner with productions companies, both in Australia and internationally on film projects with a strong visual effects component. It will also develop its own original film projects. “This is a great opportunity for Australian and international producers to partner with a world-class visual effects producer and use its experience to assist in developing, financing and producing films,” said Patterson.

Patterson most recently served as producer on The Dragon Pearl, an Australian/Chinese co-production set for release later this year. Rising Sun Pictures produced visual effects for the film. His other credits include the films Innocence and Human Touch. He served as executive producer for the television documentary The Remarkable Mr. Kaye and produced the feature documentary Kalaupapa Heaven.
