Hire a New York video crew for your next shoot

New York is unmatched for its big city atmosphere. It moves fast day and night, featuring Broadway, Wall Street and so much more. But of course, the same frantic pace that makes NYC exciting can trip up your ability to film smoothly.

Choosing the city as your next filming location means taming its potential chaos, and that calls for an experienced video crew. In New York, you will typically need at least two people to get your production going. Between parking your transport vehicles, unloading gear and setting up, managing a shoot is unfeasible with only one team member.

Having expertise on your side can help when it comes to applying for the proper filming permits from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. The Mayor’s Office of Film and Video offers free filming permits, which come with special perks like parking passes. Running your shoot with all necessary paperwork in place is the best way to avoid running afoul with the police.

Whether you’re filming a corporate communications or marketing video for one of the innumerable companies headquartered in New York, staging a live broadcast of an event, interviewing passersby, shooting B-roll or taking on any other Big Apple video project, a crew with local experience can keep your shoot moving along, while also delivering the best finished project possible.

Crews Control’s New York video crews have taken on every kind of job imaginable and can put their experience to work on your project. Whether you’re planning on a single day of filming or an extended feature-length shoot, don’t pass up the opportunity to tap into this local knowledge. Insight about everything from parking laws to ideal outdoor filming locations can smooth the progress of your shoot.

What makes shooting video in New York unique?

What are the factors that differentiate an NYC video shoot from a film production anywhere else? Our experienced New York video crews have accumulated a multitude of insights you should consider, including the following:

  • Some locations require extra insurance: If your chosen filming location requires a Certificate of Insurance, it will take some time to secure the necessary coverage through the crew’s insurance provider. This takes time, so it’s important to check with the property manager in advance.
  • Gaining entry to buildings can be tricky: Shooting video in a grand New York skyscraper means getting all the needed equipment up to the right floor. To do that, your crew will have to scout out the freight elevator and determine its hours of operation so they don’t get stranded.
  • Be extra sure to get signed releases from pedestrians: When you interview the “man on the street” as part of your video shoot, it’s a sound practice to get signed releases, especially in New York. With plenty of documentary and feature film shoots in town, lots of people are familiar with how filming works and may take legal action if you use footage of them improperly or without permission.
  • Leave more travel time than you think you need: Traveling between multiple New York locations may look easy on the map, but will likely end up being far more time-consuming than anticipated. Traffic can strike any part of the five boroughs, at any time of day.

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!
