news: SNEAKY BIG Grand Opening

August 30, 2016
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane, City of Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio participated in the official ribbon cutting with Parsons. 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 Parsons. “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 x 73 foot Cyc wall, top-of-the-line virtual reality systems and 4K capabilities. Also housed in the facility is a second 500+ square foot stage and recording studio. 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.

SNEAKY BIG is part of Parsons’ YAM Worldwide family of businesses along with BIG YAM, The Parsons Agency. Housed in the same 60,000 square foot building, the full service advertising agency also celebrated the grand opening of its new space during the event.

“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 SNEAKY BIG STUDIOS 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.”

During the grand opening, Parsons led select VIP guests on a behind the scenes tour of the studio, after which Governor Ducey tweeted that with each new venture Bob Parsons keeps Arizona on the cutting edge of excellence and ingenuity.
