Rhythm & Hues Studios Setting up in Taiwan

Late last week I became aware that Rhythm and Hues Studios is intending to open in Taiwan. I heard it from my colleague and did a bit of reading up online.

A few links here: 

- LA animation firm comes to Taiwan

- Exclusive: VFX studio in Taiwan pact - Rhythm & Hues to launch film investment fund, production facilities

Even Taiwanese government is taking an interest to support this up and coming industry. From the scale of funds that the Taiwan government is intending to invest into the industry, it seems that they are quite serious about this, and they are looking to grow the full spectrum of capabilities for the facility there.

Exciting times. 

R&H Studios is a world-class award winning company involved in feature film visual effects and animation. Currently, it has studios in Los Angeles, Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur, Hyderabad and Vancouver.

Check out the films that R&H Studios have worked on here: http://www.imdb.com/company/co0075252/


  1. Visual effects are designed and edited in Post-Production, with the use of graphic design, modeling, animation and similar software, while special effects are made on set, such as explosions, car chases and so on. A visual effects supervisor is usually involved with the production from an early stage to work closely with production and the film's director to achieve the desired effects.

  2. Visual effects is that art form within the larger context of fashion arts. At the same time, visual effects is a story telling tool used by producers exactly as Alex describes. If we consider the fashion industry, there are innovators and style leaders driving the industry. Other designers' works are imitative and derivative. In VFX, we see trends and innovation in the art arising from inspired artists and new technologies and imaginative reinterpretation of film and visual effects conventions. The fashion trends in VFX are increasingly global, yet regional and national aesthetic preferences continue to be important.
