Work with an expert video crew in Cape Town, South Africa

Corporate video is big business today. To compete in your industry, you may find yourself crafting increasingly complex videos with impressive production values. To generate this level of content, it pays to have a reliable place you can return to over time, an area that contains both impressive backdrops and convenient facilities. Cape Town, South Africa, can serve this role for your business.

Whether your organization is based on the African continent or you’re a Northern Hemisphere company looking for a shooting location that has reversed seasons, it’s worth seeing what Cape Town has to offer. The port city is located near the breathtaking Table Mountain National Park and picturesque vineyards but also contains a bustling and modern downtown core, allowing you to film either outdoor landscapes or more contemporary scenes.

Cape Town has become a filmmaking destination for Hollywood movie and TV crews because of its ability to offer “the world in one city.” When crews need a place to efficiently and affordably capture any tone or aesthetic, they come to Cape Town. Your corporate video production can unlock the same value, especially if you work with experienced crew members who know the region.

Why work with local video professionals in Cape Town?

Crews Control’s teams of video professionals all know the ins and outs of their respective areas. That means when you partner with Crews Control in Cape Town, you’ll gain insider info about the best B-roll and backdrop locations, as well as important logistics info. For example, if you need assistance translating from Afrikaans or Xhosa, the most popular local languages after English, your crew can help.

Navigating Cape Town also becomes easier when you’re dealing with professionals who know the area. Traffic between the city center and the outlying suburbs can be especially slow during workdays — your team can help you avoid backups to keep your video shoot on schedule. These professionals can also make recommendations about whether it’s best to rent a car or turn to alternative transport options such as MYCITI buses, a decision which may depend on how much gear you’re carrying.

In addition to their local knowledge, Crews Control team members come to every job with a high level of filmmaking expertise. Relying on your crew for both technical and creative input allows your internal stakeholders and talent to focus on their own roles, while giving you peace of mind.

Our video production services in Cape Town

When you’re deciding on the form and function of your corporate video, you have an enormous variety of options. Some organizations prefer to release long-form content, ranging from industry conference live streams to fully produced documentaries. In other cases, the ideal piece of video content is a seconds-long social media marketing clip designed to go viral. There’s room in a modern video strategy for both extremes, as well as any length in between.

Your videos, whether they’re long or short, polished or candid, can target either external or internal audiences. Public-facing content like product explainer videos, TV commercials and about-us clips can spread information about your brand to a vast amount of potential viewers in an easy-to-digest format. On the other hand, internal content types like training videos and messages from management can bring extra clarity to communications within your company. No matter which type of video you prefer, the right crew can help you create high-quality deliverables.

What makes Cape Town a unique filming destination?

Every city in the world provides a distinctive experience, with everything from the weather to the permitting process determining what it’s like to film corporate video there. The following are just a few important details about Cape Town you should know before you go, with input from Director of Photography Tim Wege:

  • A Mediterranean climate, Southern Hemisphere style: Cape Town’s summers are both the warmest and least rainy seasons, while its winter is defined by cold temperatures and precipitation. Keep in mind that the summer occurs from December through February and the winter corresponds with the Northern Hemisphere summer. To avoid either extreme heat and heavy rain, it may be wise to focus on spring and fall.
  • Impressive sustainability programs: Up through 2018, Cape Town suffered a long-lasting and severe drought. In the wake of that event, the city has become a center of sustainable and eco-friendly filmmaking. If your brand is environmentally minded, a green film project in Cape Town could be an exciting undertaking.
  • A national park with amazing views: Table Mountain looms impressively over the city, and its namesake park extends from near the edge of Cape Town to the greater Cape Peninsula. If you take a cable car to the top of the mountain you can capture breathtaking views of the whole area.
  • Permitting is centralized: While filming in areas such as national parks may require specific permits, the authorization system for Cape Town itself is relatively streamlined, and handled through the City of Cape Town Film Permit Office (CTFPO). At present, all commercial filming in the city does require a permit, so it’s important to apply in advance.

Once you see the many sides of Cape Town, whether you’re using it to double for another location or letting it portray itself, you’ll surely be inspired to come back and film more corporate videos in the near future.

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!
