Find an award-winning crew for your Pittsburgh video production

Pittsburgh is a city that thrives on redefining itself. While it was once one of the hubs of U.S. heavy industry, built atop multiple rivers, the Pennsylvania metropolis has become associated with business and a high quality of life. The city’s bridges and green spaces make it an attractive place to walk around — and a great potential location for your corporate videos.

Pittsburgh comes complete with all the key elements of a major metro area, including a beloved central walking and dining area in Market Square. The city is also home to NFL, MLB and NHL teams, which means it contains world-class stadium facilities that could become filming locations and look great in B-roll.

From a skyscraper-creased skyline to plenty of lush waterside walking areas and a variety of arts venues, there are several different areas you can focus on when filming a video in and around Pittsburgh. The city is divided into 90 different neighborhoods, from the picturesque view of Mount Washington to the bustling downtown which thrusts into the point where the rivers meet.

Pittsburgh is ready to become your ideal video location, especially when you work with a team of experts who know the region.

What makes Pittsburgh a unique video production location?

What does it take to film ideal corporate videos in Pittsburgh? In short, you have to understand the unique factors that define the city. Where are the best locations to set up shorts for an outdoor video project? What are the best times of the year from a weather perspective? How’s the traffic downtown? Important best practices for filming in Pittsburgh include:

  • Know the permitting process: Some small video elements don’t require a filming permit in Pittsburgh. For example, filming quick B-roll shots or walk-and-talk interviews is allowed. However, more elaborate shots and filming on public property do call for permits. The Pittsburgh FIlm Office maintains a guide to the application process.
  • Pick your mode of transit: While Pittsburgh isn’t home to a subway, it does offer light rail and bus services. Of course, if your shoot is carrying a heavy load of gear, you’ll likely have to rent a van — there are over 200,00 parking spaces within Pittsburgh, and the city’s parking meters are linked to an app that will help your crew keep track of how long you’ve been in location to avoid tickets.
  • Discover interesting locations: The variety of interesting film backdrops in Pittsburgh may come as a surprise when you first see its modern skyline. For example, the Pittsburgh Film Office recommends shooting on the grounds of historic Hartwood Acres or at Carrie Furnace, a museum built out of an imposing steel mill.
  • Plan for the weather: Pittsburgh gets cold and snowy in the winter, which could end up interrupting your plans to film outdoors. The fall is an option for a video project, though. Average autumn temperatures in the city range from 46 to 63 degrees Fahrenheit.

When you have an expert Crews Control on your side, you’re ready to find all the best sights and sounds Pittsburgh has to offer, all adding up to a smooth and effective video shoot.

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!
