Post house UNIT has hired post producer Kirsty Ratcliffe.

Ratcliffe began her career at animation house Passion Pictures before moving to The Mill London. Whilst at The Mill she produced the Halifax TV commercials featuring the Hanna-Barbera characters Top Cat and The Flintstones which involved 2D flash animation. 

She has worked on large scale VFX projects including the latest instalment for SSE directed by Academy directing duo Conkerco, which involved designing and modelling a new hero character.

She has also worked with top ad directors including Martin De Thurah, Frederic Planchon, Dom & Nic and CANADA and with London ad agencies including Lucky Generals and adam&eveDDB.

Most recently Ratcliffe co-produced for Nexus Studios, a 2.5minute CG packed, opening film for Google’s 2018 Annual IO Developer Conference directed by FX Goby which involved a team of over 50 artists. 

On joining UNIT Ratcliffe said, “I couldn’t be more excited to have joined UNIT. The management team have an incredibly strong vision with great things happening now and on the horizon. It’s also incredibly refreshing to work with a team that really empower women in advertising.”

UNIT Managing Director Daniel Sapiano said, “I had the pleasure of working with Kirsty at The Mill and she is genuinely one of the best producers I’ve worked with. Her knowledge, attitude and commitment is incredible and she is without doubt one of the nicest people you will meet. Kirsty is another great hire for Unit and I feel very proud that we are attracting people of her calibre because they share our vision.”
