About First Team Productions

First Team Productions is a full-service video production and distribution company based in Birmingham, Ala. First Team was founded by Phillip Rumore in 1991 as a mobile satellite uplink communications company. Rumore, who grew up in a legendary broadcasting family, saw a need in the Southeast for more satellite trucks with expanded video services to provide on-location TV links for local television and national network newscasts and entertainment shows. He launched First Team Productions with one satellite truck and soon became a pioneer in providing mobile satellite communications services throughout the country. First Team soon was referred to as the "go to" company when the important shoot could not fail.

Broadcasting is in Phillip Rumore's blood. His father, the late Joe Rumore, was a popular radio personality for almost half a century on Birmingham's WVOK-AM and several other local stations. Joe is renowned as a radio pioneer in the Southeast, and he was inducted into the Country Music DJ Hall of Fame in 1999. So, you see, First Team Productions is a natural extension of Phillip Rumore's heritage.

Within a few years, advancements in technology – primarily the invention of the DVD – presented First Team with new opportunities. Rumore recognized that a niche was developing in the marketplace for video duplication services. So he steered the company in that direction.

Today, First Team specializes in DVD duplication, DVD printing and packaging, audio and video format conversion, video production, video editing, production studio services, and A/V equipment service and repair.

The mission of First Team Productions is to provide our customers the highest quality of professional service. Customer satisfaction is our primary focus and our ultimate goal. If it needs to be done right, the First Team is at your service.
