Film corporate video in Cairo with the help of an expert crew

If your company is active in North Africa, Cairo can serve as an exciting location to film video content. As  a bustling metropolis located near some of the world’s premier cultural treasures, the Egyptian city has clear appeal for domestic and international video crews. Even the architecture of Cairo, including countless generations’ worth of mosques, churches and palaces, can tell countless stories on its own.

It’s important to note, however, that filming and photography in Egypt are strictly controlled and policed. Getting your video production off the ground is best handled in collaboration with experts who know the ins and outs of the permitting and legal systems.

By undertaking a Cairo video shoot, you can capture impressive footage that shows off your brand at its best. Whether your primary interest is in sleek, modern brand filmmaking or creating videos that incorporate the numerous local monuments dating back centuries, an expert video crew can capture your unique vision. 

Why work with expert video crews in Cairo?

Filming with a corporate video crew rather than relying solely on your own employees is a way to gain an infusion of expertise, local knowledge and gear, without adding permanent salaries or buying equipment out of pocket. Few companies have fully featured internal video departments, but audience members expect professional results.

In heavily regulated areas, such as Cairo, or Egypt in general, it’s especially important to be sure your crew members have ties to the region and understand how to work within the system. Securing permits to film, whether on public or private land, can be challenging. It’s best to entrust your shoot to true experts to reduce the chances of a costly delay.

Crews Control specifically pairs clients with video professionals who know the region where the shoot is taking place. This process of picking the right crew for the job allows you to capture all the footage you need in a timely and effective manner. From the local rules and regulations to the best spots for B-roll shooting, these crew members know all about their respective areas.

What makes Cairo a unique video production location?

Every city in the world comes with its own set of unique circumstances. By tapping into those distinctive currents, you can give your videos a sense of place that makes them stand out to modern viewers, who are inundated by video content. A few points to keep in mind while searching for filming locations in Cairo include:

  • Regulation is a complex matter: Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind about filming in Cairo is that there are numerous state departments and entities tasked with restricting and licensing filming. Commercial film producers have spent years navigating the bureaucracy, and even 2019 rule changes aimed at loosening controls on photography and videography only target “non-commercial” use. Getting through the red tape is a necessary step, and any shots that show less-than-flattering local scenery are especially likely to be denied.
  • Cairo is usually warm and sometimes extremely hot: Cairo’s desert location ensures that it’s warm year round. Outdoor shoots can go ahead in winter, with the average seasonal temperature hovering around 57 degrees Fahrenheit. With that said, on-location shooting in summer may be downright impossible, with a scorching average over 96 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Green spaces hide in the city: While the climate is hot, there are still oases of green in Cairo, including the impressively kept Al-Azhar Park. The park is a popular strolling location for visitors, and also home to the 800-year-old Ayyubid Wall, which was rediscovered in recent years.
  • World-class museums dot the landscape: Considering the tens of thousands of years of history associated with Egypt, it’s no surprise that Cairo’s museums are around the world’s most celebrated and well-stocked. Offerings range from the Egyptian Museum, the region’s oldest history museum, to the new and tech-infused National Museum of Egyptian Civilization.

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!
