SNEAKY BIG Studios and Ariz. Agencies Partner to Complete Major Production

Share Article

SNEAKY BIG Studios, The Arizona Lottery, OH Partners and Trandel Media recently teamed up to produce the official “Welcome Back Willie” campaign for the Arizona Lottery.

The "Welcome Back Willie" campaign is running on TV, online and in print and welcomes back the beloved lottery mascot with a new look and feel. Thanks to local agencies and SNEAKY BIG Studios, this production, which took just a week from shooting to completion, was able to be handled, start to finish, right here in the Valley.

“Normally, a production of this magnitude would have been produced in a film capitol like Los Angeles, which takes the dollars out of Arizona,” said Chris Rogers, Director of Products and Marketing for the Arizona Lottery. “Now that we have these production capabilities with SNEAKY BIG Studios, we can keep productions of this scale in the state.”

SNEAKY BIG Studios is a 15,000+ square foot production facility located in North Scottsdale. Recognized as the most advanced studio in the Southwest, SNEAKY BIG Studios boasts a 4,000-square-foot production stage – the largest in the state – and capabilities that rival any studio in LA or New York. Owned by American entrepreneur and philanthropist Bob Parsons, SNEAKY BIG Studios was created to fill a need in the market and is further illustrating that Arizona is a force in the production industry.

"We think the best work gets produced through partnerships, so we are always looking for opportunities just like this," said Marianne Curran, CEO of SNEAKY BIG Studios. "Talk about an exciting time - that's now. No longer do talented agencies like OH Partners need to go to LA or New York to make a first-rate production - time to keep those dollars in Arizona."

OH Partners is the Agency of Record for the Arizona Lottery and concepted and directed the campaign for “Welcome Back Willie.” Through a true demonstration of partnership, and because all aspects of the shoot were handled onsite at SNEAKY BIG Studios, the agency utilized local crew and tapped into the talents of other local agencies like Trandel Media, who handled all producing and editing of the project.
