Make the most of your Honolulu video production with expert crew members

Finding a location to film corporate videos has only become more important in recent years, as content creation has become more complex and audience expectations have risen accordingly. Honolulu, the largest Hawaiian city, can become the perfect video production location. The same forgiving climate and beautiful vistas that have made Honolulu a top destination can also deliver results for your brand’s content creation.

The Honolulu Film Office notes that the tourism infrastructure across the island of O’ahu helps video productions thrive — there are numerous transportation options and places to stay. Additionally, several recent movie and TV productions have used O’ahu as their filming location, from Godzilla vs. Kong and Jurassic World to the second Hunger Games and beyond.

When shooting your corporate content around Honolulu, you can capture the hustle and bustle of downtown or take in the lush natural landscapes that surround the city. Those contrasts allow you to create a wide variety of videos, while the warm weather extends the filming season well beyond other locations. With the right expert crew, Honolulu can become the perfect site to capture content for your brand. 

Why work with video production experts in Honolulu?

Crews who understand their region can lead your corporate video project to success, especially in a unique environment like O’ahu. Crews Control is a top partner organization for your brand, working exclusively with crew members who come to each job with local expertise.

From transportation directions to studio accommodations and more, these professionals can guide your talent and creative leaders to the best options on the island. If you’re bringing in personnel from the mainland, even arriving in Honolulu will take logistical expertise, and pairing with teams who have accomplished O’ahu video productions before can save you planning time.

In addition to local insights, Crews Control experts deliver a level of video production knowledge that can go beyond what internal crew members offer. Today’s businesses typically don’t have the necessary infrastructure to deliver video content that can meet viewers’ elevated expectations. However, teaming up with Crews Control is a way to capture this level of quality and stand out from the competition.

What should you know about filming in Honolulu

All cities have their unique traits that define them as filming locations. Honolulu is no different, whether you’re most interested in urban filming, shooting on a soundstage or traveling into the verdant forests and sunny beaches of O’ahu. You and your Crews Control video team will quickly discover distinctive facts about both the natural environment and the administrative climate, including:

  • Outdoor filming is possible year round: The island of O’ahu has average annual temperatures between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. While conditions are slightly colder in winter, it’s rarely truly cold. This allows your team more freedom when scheduling exterior shots.
  • Permitting is handled through a simple application form: The standardized form to receive filming permission in and around Honolulu contains multiple sections, accounting for every detail from crew vehicle parking to location details and beyond. The same document applies to corporate video and commercial film projects alike.
  • Cultural landmarks are everywhere: When you want to make sure your video honors its Hawaiian location, you can include distinctive local sights. This includes the ‘Iolani Palace, an ornate nineteenth-century mansion where the monarchs of Hawai’i lived, as well as their summer retreat, Hānaiakamalama, which is located on the Pali Highway between Honolulu and the scenic Nu’uanu Pali lookout spot.
  • Conferences and meetings provide filming opportunities: The natural beauty of Honolulu makes it a popular location for corporate gatherings. If your organization is holding a meeting or convention on O’ahu, you can use that event as an opportunity to collect footage, ranging from complete keynote speeches and panel discussions to fun behind-the-scenes clips.

Filming content in Honolulu and the surrounding area allows your team a great deal of choices and freedom. You can drive to any point on O’ahu within a few hours, allowing you to explore the region’s potential and make varied videos.

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!
