CANTON, Miss. (AP) - The owner of a video production company has bought Mississippi Film Studios.

Rick Moore, who owns Ridgeland ad and branding agency Mad Genius and production company Eyevox Entertainment, bought the Canton facility. A price was not disclosed.

The 43,000-square foot building includes a 35,000 square-foot sound stage.

The Clarion-Ledger reports Eyevox is Mississippi's largest privately owned video and film production company with an 11,000-square-foot facility, including a 4,000-square-foot studio, in Ridgeland.

Mad Genius and Eyevox merged in 2009, combining facilities, services and personnel under the Mad Genius flag. Eyevox Entertainment, Mad Genius' creative property division, has helped produce films and television shows with producers across the world.

Canton's convention and visitors bureau operated and managed Mississippi Film Studios before Moore bought it.
