Work with an award-winning corporate video crew in London

Corporate video production is a serious, high-stakes business, with companies creating ever-more impressive clips. To compete in this tough environment, you can take a cue from Hollywood film and TV predictions and settle on a reliable repeat destination to shoot your on-location and studio content. If your company is based in or around the U.K., it’s natural to look to London.

London isn’t just the largest city in the U.K. and the capital, it’s also a hub for visitors from every corner of the world, tens of millions every year. Scattered across London’s storied boroughs, you’ll find numerous soundstages and production facilities, including iconic names like Pinewood, Elstree and Twickenham. Add in the diversity of on-location backdrops, from Big Ben to leafy suburbs, and it’s clear that you’ll never lack filming opportunities in the capital.

Since London is so sprawling and diverse, you can film video there set anywhere in the world, or create universal content that doesn’t draw attention to its location. You can also lean into the sense of place, using locations ranging from Trafalgar Square to the Shard to make it clear to your audience that your content has an unmistakable U.K. flavor. No matter what your objectives may be, an experienced local crew can help you achieve them.

Why find an expert London video crew?

Recording in London is exciting and enticing — who wouldn’t be drawn to the biggest, busiest metropolis in the U.K.? However, there are also challenges. The traffic is one notable issue, with navigating within the city being time-consuming and requiring careful planning. It’s worth having a locally knowledgeable crew on your side to make sure you can keep your shoot on track.

Acquiring filming permission is another area where experienced professionals can help you out. There isn’t just one filming authority to reach out to for a permit, there are 33 of them, one for each borough. Furthermore, the Royal Parks, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament are all managed by their own private agencies rather than their respective boroughs. A London film crew can help you untangle the web of permissions.

Crews Control works exclusively with local professionals who understand their respective regions. This means in London you’ll be paired with seasoned Londoners who won’t be intimidated by the scale and complexity of mounting a video production in the capital. These experts also bring creative and technical filmmaking competencies to the table, meaning your internal stakeholders can focus on their own roles, while being confident the video will be completed on time and under budget.

Our video production services in London

Today’s corporate video strategies cover a range of outcomes and use cases. Some companies are most interested in producing external content such as social media marketing clips, product explainers and TV commercials. This content can be a pivotal piece in efforts to increase your brand visibility and inform your audience. Alternatively, internal content such as custom training sessions and C-suite messages can improve the engagement and morale of your own team. As an advanced corporate video user, you can produce both styles of video.

When deciding on the style and form of your videos, the only limit is your imagination. Even within a relatively narrow use case such as social media clips, you can choose between polished, highly-edited clips and videos filmed in a candid, off-the-cuff style. With longer videos, there’s room to work in a variety of aesthetics, with some of today’s corporate videos taking on a Hollywood level of effects. A professional video crew can help you achieve whatever visual goals you decide upon.

What can you expect on a London video shoot?

Every city in the world has its own character and identity, and filming is easier once you’ve internalized these details. London is no exception — once you arrive, you’ll quickly discover distinctive facets of the capital, including these facts highlighted by Director of Photography John Palmer:

  • You need to plan around the weather: When people talk about blustery London weather, they’re being honest. This means you should have alternatives to your locations if they involve outdoor views, as you could end up waiting a long time for the weather to change. Even indoor locations with windows can be challenging, as the light from outside can be less than ideal on cloudy days.

  • The city is loaded with iconic B-roll sites and backdrops: London is home to sightseeing spots like Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Bridge and Piccadilly Circus, all of which are useful for B-roll. The very best footage may come from Greenwich, located near the Millenium Dome, Primrose Hill in north London or the Notting Hill area.

  • Travel by car is challenging: It’s best to avoid scheduling that will require your crew to travel too much in a single day because the roads are often crowded. The city’s population is large and growing, and recent public works projects have deemphasized car routes, adding to the complexity of moving people and gear. Among the city’s new policies is a potentially unexpected expense: A congestion charge for any vehicle driving within designated zones between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays, noon and 6 p.m. on weekends and holidays.

  • Gear and services are everywhere: In addition to the many film studios in London, the city is home to numerous shops that allow crews to rent all the gear they’ll need for a shoot. Your Crews Control director of photography may have a favorite gear source that can give favorable rates, or that is located conveniently for a specific shooting location.

Once you start to get used to working in London, the city’s scale may stop feeling intimidating as you unlock the endless potential of working in such a vast metropolis. With a Crews Control team by your side, you can see the capital at its best.

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!
