Work with the best France film production companies in Nice

When people think about the Cote D’Azur in France, they think about sun, sand — and film. This glorious stretch of Mediterranean coastline is the home of Cannes, one of the premier destinations in the cinema world and site of the Cannes Film Festival. It also contains the city of Nice, which is a distinctive and promising place to film your next video.

If your company is interested in consistently producing high-quality corporate videos, it helps to focus your production efforts on a location with ample filming locations, great infrastructure and skilled crew members ready to go. Nice can become this type of spot for your business.

The city of Nice’s Local Film Office is eager to have crews work in and around the city, and points out how many different sides of the city you can capture on film. The sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean are stunning enough, but then there are the centuries of architecture to serve as backdrops. Whether you’re hoping to film Roman ruins, Art Deco facades or modern art installations, Nice can suit your purposes.

Top visual spots in the city include the forts Mont-Alban, which dates back to 1560 and Mont-Boron, which was finished in 1887. The city is also home to the distinctively Gothic-revival basilica of Notre Dame and numerous impressive buildings from the Jazz Age, such as the Palais de la Méditerranée and the Excelsior Régina Palace hotel.

When it’s time to turn these beautiful locations into video sets, you should partner with a skilled and locally versed filmmaking crew and production service provider.

Why partner with top France film production companies in Nice?

In today’s video marketing landscape, consumers are bombarded with great-looking content. How can you make sure your offerings break through? Filming in a stunning location like the Cote D’Azur is a good start. However, the quality of your camera crew will also determine how well the finished product comes out.

When you work with Crews Control as your production company, your video production team will not only bring technical and artistic filmmaking skills, they’ll also come to the project with in-depth knowledge of the area. That means when you hire a Nice camera crew, these professionals will know the best ways to navigate the city, the best angles to shoot its most iconic landmarks from and the most efficient way to secure a filming permit.

Teaming up with Crews Control is a way to gain access to expert filmmakers with professional-grade gear, all without adding salaries to your budget or spending out of pocket for equipment.

What makes Nice such a unique filming location?

Nice’s location along the Mediterranean sea as part of the French Riviera makes it a truly distinctive place to shoot a video. With that said, getting to know Nice is much the same as learning about any city — you need to know the best times are to film, as well as what part of town is ideal for your shoot, and you must secure permission from the appropriate authorities. The following are a few hints to keep your Nice video shoot on track:

  • Plan around festivals: The climate in Nice is very welcoming — the Film Office boasts that the city sees 300 days of sun each year and an average annual temperature above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. However, while the weather may not disrupt your plans, festivals might. The city hosts several major celebrations each year, including the biggest carnival in France. You can either plan to avoid the city then, or turn the party into a backdrop.
  • Arrange your travel: If your personnel are coming in from far away, you’ll likely want to fly into L’Aéroport Nice Côte d’Azur, France’s second-largest airport. Trams or buses can get you from your plane into the city center. With that said, by train is often the best way to move through Europe, and there is a train line that will get you from Paris in 5 hours 30 minutes, as well as one to Cannes that takes just 26 minutes.
  • Understand the permitting process: There are different processes for permit issuing depending on whether your shoot is a small job or a larger production that requires specialized equipment. The City Film Office helps with the process and offers suggestions such as arranging parking ahead of time in the city center and avoiding loud noise during off-hours.
  • Seek out green spaces: While coastal locations like Nice are mostly known for their beaches, the city is also home to a variety of parks. Whether you’re taking in the flower gardens at Cimiez monastery or staking out part of the 3.5 hectare botanical garden, you can get mileage out of Nice’s green zones.

The best way to stay aware of everything you need to know about Nice is to work with an expert film crew well-versed in the area’s unique traits. Crews Control personnel fit neatly into this role, providing all production service offerings you need.

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!
