Blue Sky skips to Connecticut

Animation house on the move

Digital animation producer Blue Sky Studios (“Ice Age,” “Ice Age: The Meltdown”) plans to move from White Plains, N.Y., to the Greenwich American Center in Greenwich, Conn., bringing 300 new jobs to Connecticut.

The company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fox Filmed Entertainment, cited Connecticut’s recently passed production tax credits and DECD (state Dept. of Economic and Community Development) incentives as major reasons for the relocation. Under the new program, production companies are eligible for tax credits of up to 30% on production expenses or costs incurred within the state.

Blue Sky expects to relocate all of its employees in late 2008.

Upcoming projects include “Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!,” starring Jim Carrey and Steve Carell and set for a March bow.
