Find an award-winning crew for your Palm Springs video production

When scouting for perfect video production locations in Southern California or the greater Southwest, you may find that it’s worth escaping from Los Angeles and taking a drive into the desert. Palm Springs, the tourist-friendly winter enclave in California, could be the perfect spot to stage your next corporate video shoot.

Palm Springs’ architecture is unique and stunning, designed to make the most of the desert location and near-constant sunshine. You can focus on opulent mansions and ranches, some of which are widely available to movie, TV and video productions, or train your cameras on the canyons, Joshua trees and mountains that ring the downtown area.

If you need to bring in equipment or talent from a big city, Palm Springs is conveniently located — it’s two hours from San Diego by car, slightly farther from Los Angeles, and four hours from Las Vegas. To add to this accessibility, the desert city has its own airport 10 minutes from downtown.

By getting away from the hustle of LA but staying in the region, you can meld uniqueness and convenience in your Palm Springs video shoot. To make the most of the beautiful surroundings, you can team up with a Crews Control video crew.

It’s Crews Control’s policy to pair corporate video productions with teams of experienced professionals who know their respective regions. This ensures that when there are unique factors to deal with — such as the potentially dangerous heat and dryness of Palm Springs — there will be experts on hand to guide the shoot to completion, on time and under budget.

In a location such as Palm Springs, where the population fluctuates widely from season to season, skilled local producers can also help with logistical matters such as finding lodging and food for the crew and talent on every day of the shoot.

In addition to local knowledge, Crews Control professionals can deliver technical experience regarding filmmaking, all the way through post production. To build an effective video production department in-house, you may have to allocate a large portion of your budget to full-time salaries and equipment costs.

Unique factors about Palm Springs video productions

Every location has a few distinctive points to consider. These range from climate and accessibility to local permitting processes. When you’re investigating the possibility of filming corporate video in Palm Springs, you and your Crews Control team can collaborate on this research process. Best practices for shooting in this desert oasis include the following:

  • Decide on your season of choice: Palm Springs boasts over 350 sunny days a year — but that doesn’t mean there are no seasons there. The local tourism authority notes that the city is busiest during winter, when the heat is somewhat mitigated and other parts of the country are frigid. If you want to film then, you’ll have to work around the crowds, whereas in the summer you’ll need a plan to keep your people from becoming dehydrated in the sun.
  • Do your homework on film permits: Every location in Palm Springs, except licensed film studios, requires video crews to apply for a permit. Producers have to request their permits at least three business days before the shoot starts, and the process goes through the Palm Springs chief film officer.
  • Consider indoor shooting: One of the advantages of shooting video in a location so close to Hollywood is the existence of film infrastructure. There are sound stages in Palm Springs that could help you capture special effects shots or get your crew in out of the heat.
  • Find your B-roll angles: Palm Springs is located in the desert, which means there are plenty of breathtaking arid views around town. There are also distinctive sights, including an aerial tram that runs for over two miles, as well as a variety of museums, modernist houses, a botanical garden full of cacti and a desert zoo.

Your skilled and experienced Crews Control video crew will assist you every step of the way, navigating through Palm Springs to figure out the ideal backdrops for your corporate video project. Once you’ve established a working relationship, you can come back to Palm Springs time and again.

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!
