The Midlands

We set up Second Home Animation Studios in 2006 in an old railway arch in Digbeth. We have loved living and working in Birmingham and have enjoyed watching it change over the years. There is a huge pool of talent in The Midlands, and we love working with creatives from all over the region.

We offer a range of animation services, but stop motion animation is our true passion. We do hope you are enjoying our blog. If you’re reading this page, then you’ll see below all blog posts that are about (or refer to) ‘The Midlands’.
