What do you love most about your job?

'Second Home, First Love' is our motto. First things first, my team is what I love most about the job. I'm privileged to work with such a focussed and talented bunch of people who give their all to each project. To say that every day is different is something of an understatement. One day we might be asked to design a CGI tour around the human genome, the next making talking bananas made from plasticine. Animation is about creating an illusion of life in the inanimate and the conceptual. My favourite part of the job is looking into a set and feeling like you're looking into another world.

What inspired you to start your own business?

It was a mixture of accidental circumstances, serendipity, a change in the weather and a dogged determination to make our own mark.

Why should our clients choose you?

For the very simple reason that every penny spent will end up on screen, guaranteed. The phone normally rings when clients want something a bit out of the ordinary. We're known for our innovative approach to every project, but don't take our word for it:
'Second Home Studios are the perfect mix of technical acumen and all out creative flair,' Tony Jopia. Creative Director, Sony Europe.
