Work with the best video production companies in Philadelphia

Philadelphia is one of the gems of the eastern United States, a bustling city steeped in history that offers a wide variety of filming opportunities for brands. Whether you’re hoping for a leafy suburban backdrop, a fast-paced downtown shot or classic red-brick row houses, Philly delivers.

The City of Brotherly Love is home to plenty of iconic sights, from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell to the stairs in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, immortalized in “Rocky.” Philadelphia has hosted major film productions helmed by directors including Michael Bay, Peter Jackson and M. Night Shyamalan, taking advantage of the city’s versatile character. Philadelphia can even stand in for New York, while being easier to film in.

A corporate video production in Philadelphia can range from a series of short social media marketing clips to a lengthy explainer video or training video with impressive production values. To realize your goals, you simply need to team up with a professional video production service.

Why work with expert video crews in Philadelphia?

Everything from permit applications to parking and navigation goes more smoothly when you’re working with video production service professionals who know their area. Crews Control teams operating in Philadelphia understand the ins and outs of the city, and can use their know-how to bring your project in on time and under budget.

In addition to local understanding, Crews Control experts bring technical filmmaking knowledge. Few companies have the personnel available in-house to create video content with full professional production values. Crews Control fills this gap, allowing your brand to shoot elaborate videos without adding salaries to the payroll or purchasing your own filming equipment.

If you want to ensure your shoot has the proper permits, learn the best angles to shoot the iconic Philly skyline and receive tips on which cheesesteak is superior — Pat’s or Geno’s — working with a Crews Control Philadelphia video crew is your best bet.

What makes a Philadelphia video production unique?

Every city has its unique dos and don’ts — iconic B-roll locations to film, highways to avoid during rush hour and much more. In Philadelphia, some of the most important facts to keep in mind revolve around the city’s many historic landmarks and national monuments, but there’s much more to know. Our directors of photography have plenty of suggestions, including:

  • Understand when you’ll need a permit: Areas overseen by the National Park Service, such as Independence Hall and the many monuments surrounding it, have their own film permitting process. The current rules are in flux due to a court ruling, meaning crews should pay close attention. Simple B-roll shots downtown don’t tend to require permits, but the production should have insurance.
  • Don’t expect to find street parking: On-street parking in Philadelphia can be extremely hard to come by, and even when crews find a space, it could have very strict time rules. The best bet for a production may be to use a small van and park it in a commercial garage.
  • Know the union rules: Philadelphia is home to many performing arts venues, which make great filming locations. You should be aware, however, that working in these areas means working with union crews and stagehands. Coordinating with the Greater Philadelphia Film Office is a way to set up a shoot in such a theater.
  • Find exciting B-roll angles: The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s steps are an iconic B-roll location, and the surrounding area is filled with similarly compelling views. The Eakins Oval and Boathouse Row are other great shooting spots, but it’s worth noting that, like Independence Hall, they are overseen by the park service. As for skyline views, it may be best to not shoot from the “Rocky” steps but instead head over to Fairmount Park’s Belmont Plateau.

There are so many sides of Philadelphia to see. With a Crews Control producer team on your side, your video shoot can discover them in a smooth, easy way.

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!
