Careers in design, film-making and visual effects have never been more in demand than today.  Adelaide is helping to create content for some of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster films.

A culture of creativity and innovation is helping to generate new enterprises and bring leading companies to Adelaide South Australia.  In the visual effects sector (VFX) Adelaide is home to world-renowned production houses such as Mill Films (Technicolor) and Rising Sun Pictures.

There is also a growing independent games industry with Odd Games, Mighty Kingdom, Team Cherry and Team Fractal Alligator having an international impact in mobile and PC gaming. Monkeystack, a leader in serious games, is currently expanding across Australia from its Adelaide headquarters.

Adelaide is also home to a growing augmented, virtual and mixed reality ecosystem, including the development of augmented reality applications by global defence company SAAB Australia, Microsoft’s first Australian enterprise partner for its HoloLens augmented/mixed reality technology.
