The Massachusetts state film tax incentive is all the rage right now, and movie makers have been flocking to the Bay State to get a piece of it. In our 2012 story “Hollywood on the Charles,” we wrote about why the movie industry is crazy for Boston, and in 2014, Massachusetts is finally ready for its closeup out in suburbia.
In the small town of Devens lies the brand-spankin’-new, state-of-the-art television and movie production facility, New England Studios. Opened officially in February 2014 and located just an hour outside Boston, NE Studios is the first and only production complex of its capacity in Massachusetts.
“Of its capacity” meaning this place is top-shelf and fully-loaded. Four 18,000-square-foot stages occupy the majority of the land—complete with NC25 sound quality, nail-able floors, grip and electric, and 42-foot elephant doors dividing each stage. Two floors of 30,000-square-foot office spaces are also available and include dressing rooms, hair and makeup, and high-speed WiFi. And just outside the complex are two 20,000-square-foot mill buildings for mechanics, construction and set storage.
