Studio 9 was established in 2018. We specialise in creating short animated content using a hybrid of stop motion and digital techniques.
We met in 1995, on the first of day of Art College, and between us we have over 40 years’ experience working as creatives.
Studio 9 grew organically out of our collaborations.
It has become a place for us to bring all of our knowledge, skills and experiences together to make innovative work that engages and excites!
