Sonalysts Studios three sound stages exceed expectations for privacy, sound control and construction.

Working heights of our stages range from 35 to 42 feet, each with a full catwalk system allowing the crew to work from the floor up or the catwalk down.

Over the past few years, we have hosted a number of features, including “Killer”, starring James Woods, “Amistad”, directed by Steven Spielberg, and “The Bronx is Burning”, an 8 part made for TV mini-series produced by ESPN. We also hosted “Deal or No Deal” with Howie Mandel, this past summer.

We are conveniently located between Boston and New York—along the shores of Long Island Sound, in Waterford, Ct.—in beautiful Southern New England.

The State of Connecticut offers a very generous 30% tax rebate incentive for filmmakers doing business in the state.
