Find an award-winning video crew in Calgary

Today’s corporate video production landscape is much like Hollywood filmmaking. From pre-production planning to post-production special effects, creating a high-quality corporate video requires focus, effort and expertise. Given this level of commitment to professional polish, it makes sense for companies to take a cue from movie and TV producers and find reliable locations to film their videos.

Calgary, the largest city in Alberta, is a promising location to base your corporate video production. The city contains both sound stages and distinctive outdoor locations, and it’s also a hub for service businesses that help film productions, such as gear rental and visual effects.

Movies including Interstellar and The Revenant, along with TV shows such as Fargo and The Last of Us, have all filmed in Calgary. Your company’s next corporate video production can follow in these major productions’ footsteps and take in the area’s mixture of urban downtown and rugged wilderness. The ideal way to capture Calgary at its best is to work with a professional video crew.

Why film your Calgary corporate video with local experts?

Calgary offers a wide range of locations for filming in Calgary. If you film in the heart of the city, you can look up at gleaming skyscrapers. Travel a few miles out of town and you’ll find ranches, preserved western towns and rolling plains. Navigating between all these locations — and finding out-of-the-way gems — is simple when you have a local crew on your side.

Location scouting isn’t the only role a Calgary-based team can assist with. Area experts also understand the process of applying for permits and how the weather changes with the seasons. These insights help you draw up a realistic production schedule so you can capture all the footage you need to achieve your vision.

Teaming up with a local expert allows you to feel like you’re at home, even if you’ve never filmed in Calgary before. That, in turn, frees up your stakeholders and talent to think about their roles rather than dealing with logistics. Crews Control’s teams know their respective regions. In Calgary, we’ll pair you with experts who give you the answers you need to make the most of the city and surrounding countryside.

Our video production services in Calgary

When you work with an expert production crew, there’s no limit to the kinds of video content you can create. You may choose to craft seconds-long clips designed to go viral on social media or commit to a feature-length documentary with Hollywood production values. In today’s video-centric corporate media landscape, simple, off-the-cuff videos can coexist with complex productions, as well as anything in between.

This varied video content can fulfill a wide variety of different roles for your brand. To expand your company’s visibility and reach new audiences, there are external videos, such as product explainers, TV commercials and social media marketing clips. Alternatively, your organization can focus on internal content designed to boost loyalty and engagement among your employees, such as quarterly updates or training modules.

What makes Calgary a unique place to create a corporate video?

Every city has its own distinctive character, and that energy comes through on the screen. Even within Alberta, Calgary isn’t quite like other cities such as Edmonton. You and your Crews Control team can take full advantage of Calgary as a filming location, discovering traits, including:

  • The city contains multiple sound stages: Whether you’re hoping to film indoor shots for your corporate video, use a green screen or simply get away from the Canadian winter, you can harness the indoor studio spaces in the Calgary metro area. These facilities occasionally play host to Hollywood movies and TV shows. 
  • There’s a formalized permit process and insurance requirement: Since Calgary is a film hub, there are clear, well-developed steps to follow when applying for filming permission. Requirements include filing several documents: an information form, acceptance of terms and conditions and proof of liability insurance. Production leaders also have to complete a checklist regarding intended filming locations.
  • Plenty of arena space is available: Not only is Calgary home to an NHL hockey team and a CFL football team, it also hosts the annual Calgary Stampede rodeo. This means the city has ample arenas, stadiums and exhibition halls. If you need to film in a large venue, with or without a crowd, Calgary can deliver.
  • Downtown is lined with skyscrapers: Despite Calgary’s setting among the vast plains of Alberta, the downtown area is densely packed and home to numerous modern skyscrapers. This dichotomy between rural and urban lets you capture a wide variety of footage, all within a few miles.

Discovering Calgary is a process that will doubtless lead to more ideas for future corporate videos. With the aid of an expert Crews Control team, you can turn every one of those concepts into high-quality content.

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!
