Post Production and VFX Studio Unit has hired VFX Supervisor Nuno Pereira for longform and shortform creative.

Pereira’s experience as VFX Supervisor straddles Feature Films, TV series and high profile Commercials.

He has previously held senior VFX roles over 20 years honing his craft at established VFX and post houses across the globe including The Mill, MPC and Prime Focus amongst others – working on a mix of projects across Commercials, TV and Feature Films.

His experience has seen him collaborate with high profile clients such as Netflix, Amazon Studios, HBO, SKY, BBC, Google, Apple, Sony and Playstation.

Some of his VFX credits include: “The Rig”, “Avenue 5”, “Britannia”, “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2”, “The Chronicles of Narnia”; “The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader” and “X-Men First Class”.

His most recent work includes Universal’s “Genie” and Netflix’s feature film “No One Gets out Alive” for which he was the main VFX Supervisor.

His work on the series BBC’s “Supersized Earth” and Sky’s “Britannia” have awarded him an RTS and a BAFTA nomination respectively.

At UNIT, he will be responsible for overseeing and growing the CG / VFX department for both short-form and long-from productions and he will “also further grow the artistic talent within UNIT and guide junior artists with his focus on a new generation talent pathway.”

His move comes after the studio unveiled its new UNIT Margaret Street home.

Ian Luxford MD comments: “Nuno has experienced the full gamut of requests, from CGI futuristic cities set in outer space, to photo-real creatures and everything in between. He has such a wealth of project experience working on Harry Potter to X men features – this has developed his extreme calmness and honed his understanding of the creative and technical challenges our team faces on a day to day basis. I am delighted to welcome Nuno and I am excited to watch him lead the team into the next era further elevating our creative output”.

Nuno Pereira, new UNIT VFX Supervisor says; “I am very excited to join UNIT at this time. UNIT is growing both in size and quality of offering and currently going from strength to strength. The approach of an end-to-end offer under the same roof is really enticing and it will allow me to collaborate and develop creative work across multiple departments in a seamless fashion. UNIT’s craft and talent is second to none – a very nimble mid-sized studio, with a solid footing on all fronts: from Commercials, to TV series, to Feature film. That completeness is something quite unique in our industry which I’m really keen on pushing and developing further”.
