DS Jenn Townsend, Morecambe Police’s Family Liaison Officer, is working late as usual when an arson attack is reported. She races to the scene to find horror unfolding for a broken family, the Metcalfs. As they face an overwhelming loss, Jenn must gain their trust to help Manning and the MIU uncover the truth of what has happened. Back at home, Jenn’s got troubles of her own as, along with Chris, she tries to get to grips with the realities of having a house full of teenagers and a blended family.

UNIT was approached by ITV and ‘Tall Story Pictures’ to undertake the VFX for Series 4, Ep 1 & 2 of The Bay. The Bay is a ITVx crime drama starring Marsha Thomason as DS Jenn Townsend, DS James Clarke (Andrew Dowbiggin) and DC Eddie Martin (Thomas Law.).

UNIT provided shoot supervision on location in Morecambe and delivered 45 VFX shots across Ep 1 & 2 of the series. These shots consisted of screen comps, clean up and invisible VFX. The highlight for us was helping to create the dramatic opening scene in Episode 1.
