The 15,000-square-foot production facility is the most advanced in the Southwest and boasts a 4,000-square-foot production stage — the largest in the state — and video production capabilities that rival any studio in Los Angeles or New York, according to a Aug. 15 press release.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey; Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane; Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio participated in the official ribbon cutting with Mr. Parsons, the release states.

The VIP guest list was rounded out with several local government officials, members of congress and the Phoenix Film commissioner, Phil Bradstock.

“My goal is to always build the best, and the technology and equipment we have at Sneaky Big is the most advanced in the world,” said Mr. Parsons in a prepared statement.

“We can cut records, make movies, shoot television shows, make commercials and even produce live events from anywhere in the country. Not many folks can do that.”

The main stage boasts a 40- by-73-foot Cyc wall, top-of-the-line virtual reality systems and 4K capabilities. Additional features include a production control room optimized with state-of-the-art audio and video equipment, five editing suites and a color correction suite fully stocked with the most advanced equipment and software on the market, according to the release.

“We are looking forward to both continuing our relationships with current clients and partnering with new customers to produce top-quality results,” said Marianne Curran, CEO of both Sneaky Big Studio and Big Yam, The Parsons Agency.

“This is an exciting time for both Sneaky Big and Big Yam as we see what amazing work will be created in the months and years ahead.”
