UNIT Studios continues its creative hiring push, having recently moved to their new bespoke designed home on Berners Mews, by adding yet more talent to the growing longform team having previously brought across Dan Pagan as EP of TV & Film early this year to head things up and grow numerous creative opportunities as well as building on key industry relationships and UNIT awareness.
The most recent key hire sees Duncan Cook previously from Glassworks, join the team as a UNIT TV & Film Producer.
Owner & Founder Adam Luckwell and Partner Amanda Luckwell are thrilled to welcome Duncan as he is so well regarded in the industry and ensures an exciting next chapter further bolstering the long form offering.
During his many years working at Glassworks Duncan initially produced some fantastic spots for such accounts as: NatWest, Weetabix, McLaren and Apple all of which allowed him to cultivate his passion and skill for VFX production.
He then looked to move across focusing on longer content by producing the CG and VFX for Charlie Brooker's highly anticipated Black Mirror Seasons 3 - 5, earning a Televisual Bulldog Award and two BAFTA nominations in the process.
A personal highlight of Duncan's would be his responsibility for all VFX shots throughout Netflix' first feature length interactive journey, Bandersnatch. From shoot attend via, amongst other challenges, plenty of head-scratching continuity concerns, through to final delivery. The project included full CG environments, mind-bending hallucinogenics, CG body parts, even full photo real humans - the results of which speak for themselves.
