Scoring Big in Sports Production
With a deep roster of capabilities – spanning from video production and live broadcasting to original productions and animations – SNEAKY BIG can go full-court press on any project that comes our way.
SNEAKY BIG has a solid track record in sports production, having worked with the Arizona Coyotes and PXG for several years. This year the team upped the ante with new sporting partnerships. We’ve rounded up an overview of some of our favorite sports projects and shared a little about what made them so special.
Alliance for American Football
SNEAKY BIG joined forces with The Alliance of American Football as the official studio home and production hub for games and commentary.
All the pre, post and halftime shows were hosted from our Scottsdale, Arizona studio. The team managed various levels of production for the live broadcast of games. Utilizing the power of fiber connectivity, SNEAKY BIG was able to drastically reduce the number of resources required, and costs, for a full on-site remote production. SNEAY BIG was able to host the in-game announcers, operated the Skycam and inserted graphic elements into the game — all out of our studio.
Although the league didn’t last, our partnership still stands as a testament to SNEAKY BIG’s ability to execute large-scale productions on a national level.
Spring Training Live
Teaming up with the multi-platform sports network, Stadium, SNEAKY BIG produced and broadcast Arizona Spring Training Live. The sports talk show aired on the OTT network five days a week throughout the season. Hosts Matt Gallant and Kate Longworth talked baseball and reviewed the day’s game highlights live with fans from baseball stadiums in Arizona.
Do Not Peek
Not every sport requires a physical field or court. Some prefer digital digs. In September 2019, esports veterans Scott Smith and Jason Baker launched Do Not Peek Entertainment and a unique partnership with SNEAKY BIG. Working with the SNEAKY BIG team, and out of our studio, Do Not Peek Entertainment produces original content and offers a variety of production services to developers, publishers, tournament organizers, esports team organizations, influencers and content creators across the gaming industry.
SNEAKY BIG was built to offer a wide range of capabilities to clients in any sector, and we are excited to expand our work into the world of gaming and esports. Do Not Peek is on the cutting edge of this booming industry, and we are proud to welcome them into the SNEAKY BIG family.
Grand Canyon University
Our team has kept busy this NCAA season broadcasting and producing Grand Canyon University Men’s Basketball home games. This year, GCU entered into a new partnership with KUTP FOX 10 Xtra and SNEAKY BIG to bring games to nearly 1.9 million households in the Phoenix market during the 2019-20 season. Along with global sports media tech provider, Deltatre, SNEAKY BIG is taking in-game graphics to the next level and delivering an exceptional experience to the remote GCU fanbase.
