RANDY MURRAY - president
Randy Murray’s career began when one of his school projects was turned into a weekly rock-n-roll TV show for the local ABC affiliate. He worked at two additional TV stations before becoming a commercial director at Desert Production Center, the largest production facility in the Southwest.
In 1991 Randy and his wife Theresa formed Randy Murray Productions, RMP, a creative film and video boutique with a social obligation to use the power of story to advance the good in our world. In 2001 they purchased the old KPHO building and converted it into First Studio, a center for creative endeavor.
RMP produces a balance of original content, commercial production, and production services.
Clients range from the caring community such as United Way and Boys & Girls Club to networks including CBS, BBC and Discovery Networks.
