Goldcrest to open post facility at Lionsgate Studios Yonkers

NEW YORK CITY — Goldcrest Post ( is teaming with Great Point Studios to bring high-end post production services to Lionsgate Studios Yonkers, which is owned and operated by Great Point Studios. Goldcrest Post will establish staff and operate facilities at the studio campus, providing a full slate of post services, including dailies, sound and picture editorial, color grading, sound mixing, ADR, visual effects and offline edit suites. The site, which slated to be fully operational by September, will service productions based at Lionsgate Studios Yonkers and elsewhere.

The new post facilities will complement expansive production resources at Lionsgate Studios, which include 1,000,000 square feet of environmentally-sustainable stages, office space, support areas, mill space and city street backlots. Lionsgate Studios Yonkers bills itself as “Hollywood on the Hudson.”

Goldcrest Post managing director Domenic Rom describes the venture as an opportunity to be part of a new era in film and television production in New York. 

“When I toured Lionsgate Studios, I was impressed by its design, scope and concept,” says Rom. “I saw it as a great fit for Goldcrest and our award-winning talent.”

“Goldcrest adds an exciting layer to Lionsgate Studios Yonkers,” adds Great Point Studios’ VP Chris O’Shea-Daly. “Having an established post production provider with a global reputation on-site extends our vision to be a turnkey experience for producers. Everything you need to produce great entertainment content is within reach.”

For productions based at Lionsgate Studios, immediate access to post resources has both practical and creative benefits. 

“We can assist producers on-set, near-set and remotely in a flexible workflow, ensuring a seamless path through post,” says Goldcrest Posts’s executive VP Mark Kaplan. “We’ll be there from the first day of prep through the final day of post.”

Goldcrest Post resources at Lionsgate Studios will include a theater for color grading, editorial conforming and sound mixing capable of finishing theatrical, streaming and broadcast projects in theatrical Atmos and Dolby Vision. ADR will also be available on-site, as well as visual effects, creative editorial suites and production offices. The site will be networked to Goldcrest Post’s home facility in Manhattan.

Goldcrest Post’s presence at Great Point Studios will provide a new resource for television and film productions seeking to take advantage of New York State’s generous tax credit program. The program enables production companies to recover up to 30 percent of qualified production and post production costs from the State. That threshold rises to as high as 45 percent for productions based in certain parts of Upstate New York, including Buffalo, where Great Point Studios also has stages.

At Lionsgate Studios, Goldcrest Post joins current tenants Mediapro, a global production and distribution company, and Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communication. Kaplan sees synergies between all parties in the studio complex. 

“We share values and interests,” he says. “We already see opportunities to work collaboratively, including broadening our support for underrepresented groups in the community.”
