Hollywood East is just a few months away!

By on January 9, 2013

In order for a young starlit, songstress or actor to chase his or her dreams of ‘making it big,’ it is common knowledge to head west in hopes of meeting the right people at the right time with the right set of skills under the Hollywood sign. However, for the much colder and less laid back coast of the United States a Hollywood East is in the works. The developers hope to make Hollywood East just as famous and useful as the original Hollywood.

Although Hollywood East was a term first coined by the press in Orlando, Florida once Disney MGM Studios was established, it is now used to describe the recent studio construction in the Massachusetts area. The term was first used in 2007 by the media when discussing the many tax incentives for filmmakers to bring their productions to the east coast.

The most recent development for Hollywood East is New England Studios that was started in 2012 and is set to be finished this upcoming summer. The studios will be able to host full film and television shows and are definitely prepared to compete with the best studios around the world. The studio is completely soundproof with four 18,000 square-foot stages. The stages also have the capability of being joined for large movie sets if needed. (www.nestudios.com)

Another major development is the Plymouth Rock Studios in Plymouth, Mass. The developers are proposing a state of the art earth friendly film and television studio campus. (plymouthrockstudios.com.) In addition to Plymouth Rock Studios, Southfield Studios were profiled in the Boston Globe in 2008 as a potential Hollywood East development. The studio is based in Weymouth, Mass. right on the outskirts of the greater Boston area.

In case you have been reading this entire article wondering where the Hollywood East sign will be located and what it will look like…here are the details. The sign is said to be located at Plymouth Rock Studios and will be created out of sustainable materials to demonstrate the company’s social responsibility. The sign will look similar but definitely not identical to the original Hollywood sign.

There is no need to look any further if you are trying to break into the entertainment business. In a short period of time, two, potentially three large studios will be up and running and constantly looking for help in every realm of movie and television production. There is no need to head west anymore, head north and you might just find what you’re looking for!
