Make Your Next Montreal Video a Success with an Award-Winning Crew

When you’re planning to commit to corporate video, it pays to take the process seriously. With such a large proportion of brands producing video today, you must set your content apart. Having a solid, reliable filming location for your videos is one way to achieve such a level of quality. Montreal, the largest city in Quebec, is a perfect choice to become this spot for you.

Much like its fellow Canadian city, Toronto, Montreal is a frequent choice for Hollywood films and TV shows filming on location. This means there is strong infrastructure in place, from studio spaces to an organized permitting process.

What Montreal delivers that sets it apart is its unique mixture of features. Montreal’s French-Canadian character comes across in its architecture, such as the grand stone buildings in the Old Port and the elegant external staircases and balconies throughout the city.

You can capture breathtaking footage looking up at — or down from — Mount Royal, capture academic shots on the McGill University campus or use the modern skyscrapers of downtown to double for any city in the world. For North American companies, Montreal is a conveniently located and welcoming destination.

Why work with Video experts in Montreal?

Even in the most video-ready destinations, it still pays to have an expert local crew on your side. This is especially true for English-speaking companies working in Montreal, who may fare better with French-speaking assistance. U.S. businesses will also have to make sure they have the proper approval to film in Canada.

Local expert film crews can also help your team and talent navigate the city. Montreal is served by an effective Metro system, but driving can be a challenge, with frequent downtown construction leading to delays for the unwary and conditions even worse in the snowy winter. Local dilemmas such as this are easy to overcome with Crews Control professionals on your side — all of our teams are experts in their specific regions.

In addition to their local expertise, Crews Control video creators bring a high degree of video industry skill. In today’s video-saturated corporate media landscape, viewers demand professional-quality content. Working with Crews Control is a way to achieve the necessary degree of polish without adding full-time salaries or purchasing your own filmmaking gear.

What makes Montreal a unique filming destination?

Montreal is a world-class city with a little of everything — a bustling, modern downtown is flanked by old-world architecture and plenty of green spaces. Due to the city’s status as a filmmaking destination, it’s already set up for productions. When you and your Crews Control team arrive in Montreal, you’ll quickly notice traits such as:

  • Multiple film studios: If you’re not filming on location, for example if you’re in Montreal during a chilly Canadian winter, you can take advantage of one of the professional sound stages available in the city. These versatile facilities let you capture the exact shots you need.
  • A centralized permitting system: Permits to film and park crew vehicles in nine different Montreal neighborhoods are issued through the Montreal Film and Television Commission. This body also coordinates logistics, provides access to municipal buildings and property and enables public-private sector collaboration.
  • European style and architecture: You can capture a variety of building types on film in Montreal. For example, the cobbled streets of the tourist-friendly Old Port carry French influence. While not as Gallic as Quebec City, Montreal can deliver a look that’s hard to achieve in other North American cities.
  • Popular filming locations: The same versatile backdrops that have been featured in multiple Hollywood movies can enliven your corporate videos. Big-ticket films such as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and entries in the X-Men and Punisher franchises have set up shop in Montreal.

Once you and your video crew get started filming in Montreal, you’ll likely be inspired to work on dozens of exciting new ideas. Fortunately, the city is versatile enough to accommodate all your projects.

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!
