Unit is restructuring its facilities and hiring more staff to fill separate creative offerings for offline editing, audio and finishing.

It has created Cut, Mix and Finish departments that will be overseen by a senior central production team.

“We realised that these core post production elements require a different creative talent pool, which is why we have reformulated into three distinct groups,” explained Unit chief executive Adam Luckwell.

“Producers get bespoke creatives, more manageable budgets with one final bill and an end to the culture where different houses on different parts of the project blame each other for mistakes.”

The latest Unit recruit is Richard Harris, a former director at Golden Square and founding employee of The Mill, who joins as lead Smoke artist.

Luckwell is in talks to hire other “heavyweight finishing talent” in the next few weeks.
