Enrich your video projects with an award-winning Boston camera crew

For companies based in and around New England, all roads seem to lead to Boston. The city is the natural first place to look when working on a video production. Whether you’re looking for live footage from a corporate event, shots of bustling downtown activity, interviews with your employees, or B-roll of recognizable Beantown landmarks, an experienced Boston camera crew can help you capture the best shots.

Boston is not just a centuries-old urban center, an educational hub and a common spot for corporate offices — in recent years it has begun to attract film crews working on major motion pictures. These professionals know that the streets of Boston can provide versatile footage featuring a number of different natural and manmade backdrops. You can take advantage of this range for your next corporate video project.

Crews Control provides the kinds of experienced camera crews that take any video production to the next level in terms of quality, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. For a short-form shoot or extended engagement, these professionals can become valued members of your team.

Taking care of behind-the-scenes priorities  — such as securing the right permits or finding a place to park — is a potentially underrated part of running an effective Boston video shoot. Since Crews Control teams know their city and possess years of industry experience, they can confidently handle all prep work, including getting your production in compliance with all COVID-19 health and safety practices.

We’ve been helping companies with their Boston video productions for over 30 years. When you hire a Crews Control production manager, all this expertise is in service of your project.

Why work with an expert Boston camera crew?

Boston is a compelling and versatile place to film corporate video, but getting the perfect shots is far from automatic. To find the best local locations, stay on schedule and keep in compliance with local laws, it pays to have a Boston camera crew on your side. Crews Control Crews, each with an average of 20 years of video production experience, are ready to help.

Driving and parking alone can easily derail a production trying to stay on a tight schedule. Experience and poise are important when you’re trying to unload a truck full of equipment in the narrow streets of South Boston or on the steep cobbled alleys of Beacon Hill. Nearby locales such as Harvard Square in Cambridge make for perfect filming backdrops, but they come with their own challenges, such as crowds of students and difficult traffic patterns.

Iconic shots abound in Boston. From the swan boats in the Public Garden to the Citgo sign near Fenway Park, you can use these as compelling B-roll or backdrops for talking-head interviews. A skilled Boston camera crew will know the best times and angles to film in these locations, and be able to pull the necessary permits.

As more Hollywood film productions move to Boston, it’s natural for professional gear rental services and studio facilities to follow. Crews Control teams will be able to connect you with the best local support businesses, ensuring your finished project comes out in impressive quality, without going over budget.

What makes Boston a unique filming location?

Over decades of completing corporate video projects in Boston, Crews Control production managers have discovered hidden sides of the city, learning the best ways to make the area look great on film. In addition, they’ve found out how to avoid the pitfalls that can slow down a Boston video production or inflate its budget. 

The following are four points to keep in mind while filming in Boston:

  • Don’t neglect required permits: Shooting permits are necessary to film in Boston. This includes capturing B-roll in public spaces. Some parts of the metro area are harder to record video in than others. Harvard University, in nearby Cambridge, has a notoriously strict permitting process, one that the school enforces aggressively.
  • Work with the relevant film boards: The Massachusetts Film Office offers resources for predictions hoping to set up in the Bay State. The organization can point you to good locations, work with police for crowd control, help you work with permitting authorities and more.
  • Know the angles for the best skyline shots: The Boston skyline is versatile, and can be filmed from several directions. You may be especially eager to get views of Boston Harbor or the Zakim Bridge to add a sense of place to your footage. Boston Harbor beauty shots are best captured in the morning, whereas Back Bay looks great in the afternoon.
  • Have a parking plan in advance: With street parking so scarce in Boston, it’s important to have a strategy regarding how to get gear to a shoot location. One of the most effective tactics is to remove all needed gear from the van and then have one team member park the vehicle in a garage. Of course, this means a one-person video shoot isn’t feasible.

Crews Control professionals have seen it all in their years of shooting high-quality video. This makes them valuable additions to your team, ready to take on any unique challenges that come with shooting video in the city.

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!
