New York-based Five Films has inked a co-produced partnership with Arizona indie Sneaky Big.

Under the deal, Five Films (The Boardroom with Kevin Durant for ESPN+; The Circus for Showtime) will create original sports, e-sports and military projects with Sneaky Big in the U.S. and internationally.

With capabilities such as original programming, video production, live broadcasting, virtual and augmented reality, custom animation and post-production, Sneaky Big has worked with clients across a broad range of industries.

The company’s key focus is on live broadcasting, and it has worked as the live production partner for clients such as The Alliance of American Football, Grand Canyon University’s men’s basketball team and e-sports company Do Not Peek Entertainment.

Sneaky Big has also partnered with producers to develop original programming such as documentaries, mini-series, reality series and unscripted TV shows.

“Connecting with the audience and telling meaningful stories that provide deeper understandings and greater appreciations are the pillars of Five Films,” said Scott Boggins (pictured, right) and Craig Jenest (left), co-founders of Five Films. “Our partnership with Sneaky Big allows us to continue our passion of creating unique content for all to enjoy while also providing the unequaled opportunity to directly tap into the exciting and exploding space of e-sports.”

As veteran producers and showrunners, Jenest and Boggins’ other credits include Chain of Command (NatGeo), 24/7 (HBO Sports), Being Liverpool (Fox Sports), Sex & the City (HBO) and TRL (MTV), among others.
