ANYTHING BUT ORDINARY
SPORT = STORIES
Telling a story sparks a connection.
Stories give sport meaning beyond the action. Stories unite us, divide us, inspire & frustrate us.
With decades of experience in global sports broadcasting, we capture live events, create engaging content, go behind the scenes.
First5Media was founded to bring storytelling panache to sports production, at fair cost, with no corners cut.
Our founders have combined over 40 years’ experience at the heart of global sports broadcasting, both behind and in front of the camera, live and recorded.
First5 provides brilliant, thrilling production of any sports related event for any budget.
To every project we apply the First5 belief: that sport is never just a goal being scored or a finish line being passed, it is the world’s most exciting, emotional, compulsive live-action narrative, and it needs the most ambitious production values, most stylish storytelling and most agile use of developing technology to create the impact it deserves.
