Award-winning crews for your Mexico City video production

When you’re considering where to shoot your next corporate video, there are plenty of reasons to look to Mexico’s capital, Mexico City. This huge metropolis offers temperate weather year round, and backdrops that combine centuries of architectural development, from the pre-colonial to the ultra-modern.

Companies in North America can make Mexico City a premier destination for video shoots, building content to fuel their social media marketing strategies and helping them reach their audiences. The city is close and accessible enough that travel isn’t a problem, while also allowing these companies to give their videos a unique style.

Within Mexico City, you can discover structures from the Aztec empire, alongside a vast array of modern museums and galleries, each potentially serving as a key filming location. While collecting B-roll, your team can capture iconic local sights such as the massive Ángel de Independencia statue and cathedral.

Mexico City is laden with promise for corporate video creators, but to turn its potential into a great finished product, it pays to work with an experienced video production company.

Running the perfect Mexico City video production

Not every company has the personnel on staff to make a professional-quality video. In fact, most don’t. This isn’t a problem, because there is a way to create a vast array of corporate video content without adding salaries to the books or paying the up-front costs for gear. Your company can team up with a Crews Control crew.

Not only do Crews Control’s creative professionals understand the ins and outs of high-quality film production, they also know their regions. If your business is filming in Mexico City for the first time, your Crews Control director of photography will help you settle in with knowledge about where to capture the best B-roll, how best to navigate the challenging parking situation and even which of the city’s countless world-class restaurants you should try. Producers can also arrange for an extra security and loss prevention presence on location to keep personnel and gear safe at all times.

Crews Control teams know how to ensure their productions comply with local laws, and their understanding of local weather and geography allows them to draw up well-crafted schedules that will keep your production on track, no matter how complex it is.

Unique filming factors about Mexico City

What does it take to capture the very best of Mexico City, without experiencing unexpected delays or difficulties? When you work with Crews Control as your chosen video production company, our directors of photography can clue you into every part of the process, from applying for a filming permit to dodging the rain. Our experts’ tips for Mexico City productions include:

  • Choose your season carefully: Average temperatures in Mexico City are warm year round, so you can theoretically capture outdoor footage anytime. With that said, there’s another major consideration: rain. From May to November, the city experiences a rainy season, and the frequent showers could slow down your shoot. It’s useful to plan extra time into your schedule or focus on December-April for outdoor shots.
  • Know when you’ll need a permit: Open-air filming without street disruption is free in Mexico City. Your crew simply contacts the local authorities via the film commission. However, for shots on public transportation or those that obstruct streets, sidewalks or bike paths, you will need to pay for a permit.
  • Consider alternative transportation: Finding a parking space is hard in Mexico City. Finding a free parking space in bustling areas such as downtown, Condesa or Roma is nearly impossible. Unless your team is traveling with a large amount of gear, traveling by a rideshare app may be much easier than driving your own van.
  • Take advantage of the unique architecture: Mexico City has many great locations to shoot B-roll, but downtown is potentially the best. Here, you can locate well-preserved buildings from both the era of the Spanish conquest and the pre-colonial period, allowing you to give your video a unique sense of place and history.

Mexico City covers a massive area, and navigating it for the first time can be intimidating. It pays to work with regional crews who know the city inside and out.

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!
