Bigfoot Entertainment has established at the SRP the first international movie studio in the Philippines. It entered into a long-term lease agreement with the City of Cebu for a two-hectare lot in 2008.
Phase 1 of the P billion-peso development has been completed. It consists of a quad shooting stage with complete support facilities – director and producer offices, star dressing rooms and suites, wardrobe rooms, hair and make-up, art department and camera and equipment rooms. The shooting stage has been fitted with a helipad.
The project's second phase will consist of construction of the fabrication and mill buildings where individual set elements or full film sets will be constructed. Bigfoot also plans to set up at the SRP its Executive Hotel, with 85 world-class, fully-serviced suites, a gym and spa, a cafe and business center. Bigfoot plans to fashion its SRP facilities into a destination evoking Hollywood's glitz and glamour with a host of classy restaurants, boutiques and sidewalk shops.
Bigfoot Entertainment is composed of Bigfoot Films, Bigfoot Studios and International Academy of Film and Television.
