Crowd funded Australian movie, Rise, was released recently and Tourism Media got a special thanks for their technical support and advice.

Jack Higgins, one of Tourism Media’s editors, was the chief editor for the film and TM’s Digital Expert, Matt Sawyer, was also brought in as a colourist and digital consultant.

Rise is based on a true story about a young man falsely accused of rape.

Here’s the synopsis:

“Stripped of his career and his freedom, Will is forced to survive maximum security jail. The film centers on an unlikely friendship formed with Jimmy, a hardened armed robber and the legal battle by a prominent lawyer who must compromise status and wage to prove his innocence.”

One of TM’s founding directors, Nick Joy, volunteered his experience and expertise to help make the project a success.

Here’s the trailer:
