Last week saw the launch of Unit Post in Soho, an all-Apple HD dry-hire facility with what it boasts are 'unique' bolt-on services.
Based in Carlisle Street and opening on 1 May, the facility will comprise of 10 suites all offering an Apple-based workflow that is fully HD 444 uncompressed. Uniquely, all Unit's suites will be available for dry- hire with clients being able to bolt-on additional services including editors, runners and HD decks.
Co-founded by David Peto and Luke Colson, Unit Post is one of the first UK post production facilities to provide an Apple-centric workflow with Final Cut Pro HD editing systems, Final Touch grading suites and storage on Xsan. In addition, Unit will offer compositing services with Shake and After Effects, which can be added where needed in any suite. An audio suite with ProTools will also be available for hire as well as a separate production office joined to one of the suites.
"Due to Unit's modular set-up everyone benefits, whilst being supported by the most technically advanced FCP and Apple equipment available," comments Managing Director, David Peto. "Plus by using bolt-on style pricing, our clients will find it easier to stay within budget by paying only for what they need and leaving out what they don't. Our client's suite and rates will be tailored to their requirements, both technically and financially."
