Find an award-winning crew for your video production in Auckland

Finding a reliable place to film corporate videos can be a major leg-up for your business today, as companies compete to have the most exciting and engaging visual content. If your organization is based in Oceania — or if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere and want a location that’s experiencing summer during your winter — you can find a valuable locale in Auckland, New Zealand.

New Zealand is renowned for its beautiful landscapes, and has also been used by major movie studios to double for other countries around the world. Auckland can be an especially versatile place to film, as it’s one of the few places in New Zealand that can offer a sleek city skyline to complement the water views and abundant nature nearby.

Recent movies including M3GAN, Disney’s live-action Mulan and The Meg have all filmed in Auckland. The same combination of impressive outdoor locations and film studio infrastructure that brought these international productions to New Zealand can also empower your business’s corporate video shoot, especially if you work in tandem with local experts.

Teaming up with experts in Auckland

When you hire a Crews Control video team in Auckland, you can be sure these professionals are truly experienced at working in and around the city. This means your internal stakeholders and talent will immediately feel like locals. Whether you’re searching for a specific type of natural landscape or simply want to know the most efficient way to navigate downtown traffic, crew members based in Auckland can guide you.

In addition to pointing out great B-roll locations, your New Zealand video crew can assist with the permit application procedure. To receive filming permission in and around Auckland, you need to fulfill a list of requirements, especially if your shoot will disrupt traffic or require drone footage. Experienced Auckland film crews have gone through this process before and can help you do the same.

All of this local expertise comes along with technical and artistic filmmaking know-how. Crews Control experts can deliver an elevated level of professionalism and polish to your corporate video projects, without the need to add permanent salaries or purchase your own gear.

That may mean full-scale Hollywood production values, a candid, behind-the-scenes style or anything in between.

Unique filming factors around Auckland

New Zealand in general and Auckland specifically are truly distinctive places to create corporate video. When you and your Crews Control team first begin working in the region, you’ll quickly discover traits that will define the experience of filming and the resulting video. These include:

  • Diverse natural landscapes: Does your video need to depict beaches and cliffs? What about secluded waterfalls or vast forests? Or rugged, rolling hills? The natural sights around Auckland are as varied as they are breathtaking — and all these areas are around an hour or less from the center of the city.
  • Dedicated soundstage facilities: Due to the number of movie and TV productions that visit Auckland, the city is well-equipped when it comes to indoor filming facilities. You can reserve time in these dedicated spaces to capture effects shots or interiors, or to keep filming during the Southern Hemisphere winter. Auckland Film Studios covers 10.5 acres and has five stages.
  • A change of pace for northern companies: Do you want to film winter exterior shots in July? What about escaping the gloom in February and launching an outdoor shoot? Auckland’s Southern Hemisphere location makes it perfect for companies that want to get away from the prevailing weather in the Northern Hemisphere and take advantage of its reversed seasons.
  • Capable event venues: Industry conventions, corporate meetings and other events provide a great chance to bring people together in one location — meaning they’re perfect opportunities to shoot video. Auckland touts its status as New Zealand’s No. 1 meeting destination, with modern venues and thousands of available hotel rooms for your company’s team.

Auckland’s natural location and infrastructure make it a versatile place to shoot corporate video. No matter how grand your ambitions become, you and your Crews Control team can accomplish your filming goals there.

Prepared, Creative, Professional and on the 10 scale an 11

I’ve been producing and directing videos for Broadcast (NBC/ABC/CNN/C-SPAN) and Corporate for over 30 years – and Matthew and Dan were one of the best crews I have EVER worked with.




The footage was well done.

Just got out of the edit. Tim did a great job. Considering the talent we gave him to work with, I would go as far as to say he’s a bit of a magician.

Thanks for the help!



Thanks for the great shoot yesterday.

Everything was great and I wanted to let you know that our Executive Producer said the footage we got from the different regions was the best footage he had ever seen come from remote crews that we didn’t have control over. That is a great compliment coming from him.

I appreciate all your help and look forward to working with you again!
