Work with an expert film crew in Jakarta

Today’s companies are competing in an entirely new media environment, where video productions are becoming ever more ambitious and visually impressive. To stand out amid these impressive offerings, your brand needs an advantage. For instance, you can find a reliable location to film your videos, a place with impressive, diverse backdrops, strong infrastructure and a forgiving climate.

If your business is located within a short flight of Indonesia, the capital city of Jakarta, on the island of Java, could become your ideal video production destination. The city of 10 million residents combines a modern, skyscraper-laden downtown with centuries’ worth of historic sites, from the Merdeka and State Palaces to the more recent and massive Istiqlal Mosque. Jakarta as it exists today sprawls over a vast area created by conglomerating many towns and villages over the years.

While Jakarta’s stunning sights and tropical location make it an exciting filming destination, you will have to follow legal procedures to gain filming permission there. Whether you’re exploring Indonesia for the first time or are making a habit of shooting footage in the country, it pays to work with locally-based video experts.

Why do you need an expert local crew in Jakarta?

Getting permission to film content in Indonesia means obliging a few specific rules. To ensure your project isn’t caught up in red tape from the beginning, it’s extremely valuable to team up with professionals who know the reason. All video productions require a partnership with a local fixer, so creating that connection is essential.

You’ll also need to obtain visas for your stakeholders and talent from the Indonesian embassy in your respective country. Obliging these rules is an essential start to your Jakarta film production. Once you’re in the city, local experts can keep providing assistance, helping you navigate the massive city’s many neighborhoods and find the best locations to shoot footage.

Crews Control works with local crews who understand their regions and are able to provide helpful insights. From navigating visa and permit issues to providing translation and navigation advice, it pays to have access to experts who know their way around. These professionals are also at the top of their industry in terms of filmmaking acumen, providing your brand with top-quality video production ability without adding salaries or purchasing gear.

What’s filming in Jakarta like?

Once you and your Crews Control team have received permits and visas to film in Jakarta, what will you discover? The city contains sights and sounds you won’t find anywhere else in the world, all in a distinctive climate due to its location close to the equator. Once you start scouting around in the Indonesian capital, you’ll quickly find:

  • Breathtaking islands nearby: While Jakarta itself is a bustling metropolis with 10 million residents, it’s surprisingly close to tranquil seaside destinations. For example, you’re a short boat ride away from the beachside of Pulau Macan on the “thousand islands” of the Kepulauan Seribu.
  • Traditional cultures on display: To give your video a truly local flavor, you can travel to Setu Babakan, where the Betawi heritage is preserved and presented. Traditional music, dance, martial arts and cuisine are all present in this area, letting you create content that is undeniably made in Indonesia.
  • Warm weather all year round: Due to its location in the tropics, Indonesia doesn’t experience the standard four seasons. Rather, you can plan your shoot around the dry and rainy seasons. Dry season extends from April to October, and the average temperature in both seasons hovers above 80 degrees Fahrenheit by the coast.
  • Divided city regions: Counting the islands of the Kepulauan Seribu, there are six areas that make up greater Jakarta. You’ll find massive skyscrapers in the central city, historical sites by the coast, cool and breezy green spaces in the south and much more.

With such a distinctive and bustling city to film in, you and your Crews Control video crew can thrive in Jakarta, creating content that will empower your strategy for years to come.

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!
