Find an award-winning crew for your Helsinki video production

Filming ambitious corporate video content has become a major effort for companies today. It can pay to build your brand’s filming infrastructure to meet audience expectations and stay competitive. But where should you base your productions? It helps to have a safe, reliable and convenient place to shoot video, whether on location or in the studio. If your company has easy access to northern Europe, Helsinki can serve as your base of operations.

Helsinki is the capital of Finland, a country which consistently wins high marks for sustainability, security and the happiness of the populace. In the summer, temperatures warm up and the city’s high latitude leads to constant daylight for outdoor filming. In the winter, the city becomes a frosty winter destination, defined by its famous saunas.

Numerous local and international movies and TV series are filmed in Finland, which means Helsinki has the infrastructure — such as sound stages and gear rental services — to enable even the most ambitious corporate videos. Whether you’re working through the dark winter on a sound stage or capturing location footage under the midnight sun, Helsinki is an exciting place to create content, especially with local crew members on your side.

Filming in Helsinki with the aid of video experts

While Helsinki can be a remarkably friendly place for international crews — the currency is the Euro and English is widely spoken — there is always value in working with professionals who understand the region and have worked there before. This is the experience Crews Control delivers: All our crews have knowledge and expertise around specific regions, so you’ll immediately feel like a local.

In Helsinki, for example, these well-versed team members can help you stay in compliance with filming regulations, such as the rules for drone operations. You can also work with Crews Control experts to get the best tips on how to navigate the city. Is your production small enough to travel by train or tram rather than van? What’s the best way to reach the 330 small islands in the harbor? These are the types of questions local experts can answer.

Experienced local professionals can also point out the best B-roll locations, and recommend the best way to use the seasons to your advantage. That could mean maximizing short daylight hours in the winter or finding the best hours to film when the sun never sets.

Unique factors about filming in Helsinki

Helsinki offers a distinctive landscape. The city is dotted with green spaces but, like so many Scandinavian cities, it’s built around a port. Both the trees and the water could become essential parts of your video’s backdrop, along with the architecture, which ranges from centuries-old row houses to postmodern public buildings. The following are a few ideas to keep in mind when filming in the Finnish capital:

  • You’re never far from nature: Finland is the most forested country in the world, and Helsinki shares this character. The city is made up of 40% green spaces, meaning you can always find a picturesque landscape to film. The centerpiece of these natural wonders is Keskuspuisto, the city’s 1,000-hectare central park.
  • Permits are relatively simple to obtain: The Finnish permitting system is built on the Everyman’s Rights principle, which stipulates people can access public land and waterways. Situations when you do need permits, arranged through local film offices, include shots that need to reroute traffic or ones that take place on private property.
  • Historic sites encompass a variety of eras: When you need to capture another age, Helsinki can deliver. Suomenlinna Sea Fortress is a World Heritage site with centuries of history and the Open-Air Museum of Seurasaari showcases traditional Finnish rural life. Fast forward a few centuries and you’ll find Linnanmäki Amusement Park, founded in 1950.
  • Helsinki can host large industry conferences: One of the most promising settings to film corporate video is a large-scale event or meeting, with employees all in one place to appear in your content. The Helsinki Convention Bureau points out that the city’s compact size, simple public transit and beautiful, sustainable conference venues make it a viable destination.

There’s plenty to see in Helsinki, and lots to capture as part of your next video shoot. With a Crews Control team on your side, you can make the most of the opportunities presented by 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!
