Incentives Scorecard: Connecticut Offers New England Backdrop

Connecticut provides filmmakers with a New England backdrop and financial support. But while the state has drawn big-time TV production, the incentive has temporarily excluded motion pictures for fiscal years ending June 2014 and June 2015. Reality and gameshows have come, however, to take advantage of the generous tax credit, and Fox-owned animation shop Blue Sky Studios (“Ice Age”) continues to produce films that qualify for an animation credit.
