Stone House Productions, LLC is a South Norwalk, CT, based production company founded in 1996 by Cheryl Carlesimo, John McCally, and Craig Rogers. We've produced hundreds of television shows for NBC, Discovery Channel, Food Network, CNBC, National Geographic, WGBH, Discovery Home, Discovery Kids and Animal Planet. Our bread and butter is live action, non-fiction series production, but we have also produced specials, studio projects, animation, educational programs, interstitials, website content, CDs, CD ROMs, and even published books. Our genres include reality, science, history, lifestyle, and children's programming.
As a full service production house, we are typically involved in a project from pitch to post. We operate four in-house edit suites; and have shot at far-flung locations from the dino fossil beds of Wyoming, and the plains of Quebec City, to the peak of Mount Hood. We are equally comfortable producing in Standard or High Definition, and have delivered programming ranging from one minute segments to hour long prime time specials. And despite taking on some very prickly projects, we've never blown a budget or missed an airdate. Knock on wood!
We look at each project through the lens of "story", and allow the content to define the style. We work hard to make the process of producing TV a positive one, and take pride in the fact that so many of the clients, writers, free lancers, and talent we've collaborated with in the past are happy to come back for more. Over the course of our careers, we've been fortunate to have worked with many of the great names in acting and music: Susan Sarandon, Ben Stiller, Emma Thompson, Morgan Freeman, Ben Kingsley, Christian Slater, Kelly McGillis, Bobby McFerrin, Brian Eno, and Elvis Costello. Four career Grammy nominations, a Daytime Emmy nomination, a Humanitas Award, several Parents' Choice Awards, and two Ace Award nominations attest to the quality level of our work. We've also had a lot of fun in the process!
