Who We Are
Union is an independent visual-effects facility founded in 2008 by Adam Gascoyne and Tim Caplan to provide a creative service for feature film and television productions.
Located in the heart of Soho, London, the studio is founded on a culture of originality, innovation and collaboration. Exceptional supervisors, producers and artists share their experience and passion for filmmaking and storytelling to produce imaginative solutions, quick turnarounds and stunning results.
The studio’s regular clients number some of the world’s top filmmakers, who return to Union time and again as a trusted technical partner and creative ally. The team works closely with clients throughout every phase of the creative process, from VFX design and previs to CG animation, digital makeup effects – gore is a particular Union talent – compositing and matte painting. Core specialties include CG environment work and invisible effects.
Union is proud to have been the sole visual-effects studio behind many prestigious film projects, including Three Billboards outside, Ebbing Missouri, Florence Foster Jenkins, T2: Trainspotting, Steve Jobs, Suffragette, The Lady in the Van, Far From the Madding Crowd, Philomena, 127 Hours, The Theory of Everything and Black Sea.
Television projects include Trust, Oasis and Outlander.
A significant highlight on the Union roster saw the company joining Danny Boyle’s creative team to deliver the short films for the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
As part of Access: VFX, the team are passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion in the VFX industry.
Union are also a member of UK Screen, the trade association that represents our industry.
Union has recently taken on additional space and increased its roster of supervisors. As a result, it is even better positioned to take on more — and more ambitious — new projects.
