Our Approach

Every project is a partnership. We have years of experience in animation and we love what we do. We listen attentively and figure out what you want to do and the best way we can achieve it.

We have worked with broadcasters, super brands and everybody in between. No project is too small or too big for us. We work in a wide palette of styles – from light to dark, serious to silly, and from simple to sophisticated. We pride ourselves on being good to work with, light on our feet and adaptive to new styles and media…

The Second Home Studios Story

Our story is a bit like one of our projects, a partnership and idea that developed over time.

Chris Randall and Jim Turner created the company (Second Home Productions Ltd.) in October 2004 because of the increasing demand from theatre companies to provide unique onstage visuals for stage productions. The partnership brought together experience in animation and camera discipline, with Chris as Director and Jim as Co-Producer. These theatrical projects ranged from political satire with Follow My Leader to all-out spectacles of tornadoes and magic with The Wizard of Oz.

As the passion and demand for animation grew, Second Home Studios became a dedicated animation production house in 2008 with Chris as sole director. Jim followed one of his other passions and became a freelance live-action/documentary director based in Bristol but still remains a close friend of the studio.

In the course of its animation history Second Home has created a number of big projects and won numerous awards. With each new challenge comes the opportunity to break new ground, in the spirit of those early projects upon which the studio was founded.
