Work with top video production companies in Richmond

When your company is looking for an East Coast video shoot location, Richmond could be the perfect fit. The capital of Virginia is just far enough south to deliver mild winters, extending the spring and fall shooting seasons. Furthermore, it’s close to other cities such as Washington, DC and Baltimore, allowing you to bring in talent or gear from these locations without getting caught up in their hustle and bustle.

Numerous TV shows, film productions and commercial shoots have come to Richmond in recent years, taking advantage of the wide variety of locations nearby. The city sports a modern downtown, but is a short drive from numerous older structures, such as the eighteenth-century homes in Petersburg. The Virginia Film Office notes that productions have used the Richmond area as a double for Washington, DC or New York, and have filmed period pieces here about the Civil War and American Revolution.

Whether you’re trying to evoke an old-fashioned feeling or are more interested in contemporary sights and sounds, Richmond can deliver. Stately mansions can double for government buildings, while there are also a variety of industrial zones, some repurposed into cool contemporary spots and others giving off an aging, rusty aura. Once you’ve decided to film here, the best way to see the city and the surrounding countryside is to team up with a crew of experts.

Why film with a professional crew in Richmond, Virginia?

Even the most film-friendly region is best explored with professional assistance. Making the most of the local production infrastructure is a smoother process when you have access to experts who have made numerous videos in that region in the past. This is why you should team up with Crews Control for your Richmond video production.

All of Crews Control’s professionals know their respective areas. This could take the form of direct advice such as the best ways to get from the airport to downtown, or in bigger picture strategic matters, such as choosing the best season for an outdoor shoot based on climate.

In the Richmond area and Central Virginia as a whole, assistance from a Crews Control team could focus on finding effective transportation. As opposed to other cities with subway and light rail options, Richmond is largely a place for driving. Once you’ve created an itinerary for your Richmond corporate video shoot, you can work with your Crews Control professionals to find the perfect barbeque spot for lunch.

What makes Richmond a unique video production location?

No two cities are alike. When deciding whether to shoot a Richmond corporate video or seek an alternative location such as Washington or Baltimore, it’s important to do some research into the pros and cons of the region. Features of Richmond to consider include: 

  • A wealth of green spaces: One of the most exciting reasons to film in Virginia instead of a more built-up urban area is to take advantage of proximity to nature. The state of Virginia includes 41 state parks, some of which are just a short drive from Richmond on I-95.
  • Sporting locales: While Richmond isn’t home to a major league sports franchise, you will find plenty of athletic arenas nearby, in case you want to use a stadium for your shoot. You’ll find the Richmond Raceway auto track alongside a Double-A baseball stadium and USL Second Division soccer field.
  • A forgiving climate: Temperature data for the Richmond area reveals that even in the spring and fall, your production should have little trouble filming outside. From April through October, mean average temperatures are above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, allowing you to extend your shooting calendar beyond what may be possible farther north.
  • An artistic downtown: Not only does downtown Richmond have a modern city skyline —- suitable for great B-roll footage — it also boasts exciting street art on some buildings. These murals can give some extra personality to your shots and backdrops.

With a Crews Control team to guide the way, you can quickly find your way to the best spots in and around Richmond for your video shoot. Whether you’re capturing historically tinged footage on a Civil War battlefield or filming amid the bustling downtown restaurants, you’ll be sure to get some visuals worth keeping.

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!
