Find an award-winning video production company in Dubai

Serving as a hub of luxury and activity, amid massive, modern skyscrapers, the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates acts like a magnet for wealth and glamor. You’ll find the world’s tallest building — the 163-floor Burj Khalifa — towering over the skyline, and the city is sandwiched between mesmerizing deserts and sunny beaches.

You’ll know you’re in a very distinct locale from the moment you arrive, because Dubai International Airport is home to the world’s largest terminal, which doubles as the second-biggest building in the world by square footage. The airport is home to an Apple Store and a Hard Rock Cafe, among other international chains.

The stunning vistas, elaborate architecture and fast-paced nightlife make Dubai an exciting place to film your next corporate video, provided you’re working with a corporate video production company that has the experience and expertise to make the most of the setting. 

Locally based Crews Control teams who understand the region can ensure your Dubai video production runs smoothly from start to finish, whether you’re planning to film extended live event videos, create numerous quick marketing clips for social media posting or produce anything in between. Filming brand videos with a video production agency on your side is an ideal way to reach your target audience, internal or external.

Improve your Dubai video production with an expert crew

Getting the most out of a Dubai corporate video shoot means acclimating quickly to local conditions, ranging from the desert climate to local cultural norms and the UAE government’s film permitting process. The air of luxury and the government’s welcoming attitude toward overseas business interests has made Dubai a video production hotspot, but you should still plan carefully to make sure nothing slows you down.

If you’re traveling to the UAE from outside the region, you’ve likely booked a limited time in Dubai. This makes it especially important to have a well-designed strategy and stick to it, so you can be sure you capture all the necessary footage during your stay. Knowing how to operate in hot weather is also a must, as is picking the season for a shoot.

Even something as seemingly simple as a dress code misunderstanding can slow down a video shoot. Local dress norms for public spaces vary slightly from place to place, but generally don’t allow any casual clothes. Men will have to avoid shorts and tuck in their shirts, while women should avoid skirts above the knee, sleeveless shirts or leggings.

With a video production crew on your side, you can spend less time on delays, and more time creating top-quality marketing video content.

When you’re operating in a varied and opportunity-laden environment like Dubai, you have innumerable options for the types of training video, promotional video and digital marketing video content you can create.

What makes Dubai a unique filming location?

Every location in the world has distinctive features that crews will have to plan around when operating there. Dubai is no different, and Crews Control teams can help you thrive there, with their knowledge of how to handle local factors such as:

  • The climate and weather: Dubai boasts tremendous heat most of the year, and a short rainy season that lasts from December to March. In the summer, crews must be ready to work around 100-degree Fahrenheit days, largely by filming in the morning or at night. Hydration is also a must at any time of day.
  • The permitting process: Filming indoors, in a private place with no buildings visible, is the only kind of shooting that can go on without a permit. Every location in Dubai, on public or private property, requires a permit.
  • Visa approval procedures: While it’s free to receive a visitor visa into the UAE, getting through customs with film gear will require your personnel to already have a permit for filming. Customs agents will want to see that your company is approved to film before letting you in.
  • The best filming opportunities: Skyscrapers such as the Princess Tower, Burj al Arab and Burj Khalifa make perfect backdrops or B-roll features. As for other distinctive sights, some of them are located right in the airport itself — Terminal 3 boasts two zen gardens. For a more natural look at the UAE, you can book a sojourn into the desert and film the majestic dunes.

Crews Control video and media production teams with a background shooting in Dubai can point you in the right direction, taking the lead on everything from securing permits to pointing your crew to the best restaurants.

Our Dubai corporate video crews: Experience and gear

Having an experienced video crew on your side can help you bring your ideas to life creating company films and other digital marketing content, from on-location film capture to video editing in the studio. Seasoned professionals from a corporate video production company know how to keep a shoot on track, even when unexpected circumstances make their presence felt.

All of Crews Control’s directors of photography have at least a decade-long history in the field, so you can trust their know-how. Furthermore, our team members in Dubai know the city and the region, allowing you to deal with geography, permitting and more as if you were a local.

In addition to personal experience, Crews Control teams bring the latest and best gear with them on shoots and in the studio. This is an important consideration, because when you’re capturing sights as impressive as the Burj Khalifa or the burning desert sands, you’ll want to ensure the tools you’re using are able to really take in the grandeur of the scene. Our producers have the latest equipment from Sony, Panasonic, Canon, JVC, Thompson (Philips), Hitachi, RED and Arriflex.

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!
