Expert crews to enhance your Seattle video production

Hemmed in by the Pacific Ocean and the breathtaking Cascades mountain range, Seattle is a beautiful city —  one that can be the perfect place to film your next corporate video project. Whether you represent one of the ambitious, high-tech companies based in Seattle or you’ve come from out of town, there are plenty of ideal filming locations in the Emerald City.

You’ve seen the iconic B-roll shots of Seattle before: merchants throwing fish at Pike Place market, ferries and fishing boats sailing into the harbor, the gleaming Space Needle in front of Mt. Rainier. When you work with an experienced Seattle camera crew, you can capture vistas like these and also go beyond them, finding underappreciated gems.

Working with Crews Control is a way to immediately add a level of expertise and skill to your video projects in Seattle and beyond. With one of our experienced production managers calling the shots and skilled video crew members on the job, you can complete your video shoots on time and under budget, no matter the type of finished video content project you’re aiming for: animation or in person, social media marketing or coverage at live events.

Crews Control teams, with their deep reservoir of video production training and local expertise, can find you the shots you need, whether you’re working downtown, in the city’s many green spaces or out in the wilds of the Cascades. These professionals are skilled at completing all behind-the-scenes work, including complying with COVID-19 health and safety practices.

Crews Control has been active in Seattle for over 30 years. And in that time, our crews have become ideal partners for ambitious companies seeking video production assistance of all kinds.

Work with the best Seattle video production company

An Emerald City video production can take many forms, depending on your business’s content marketing needs. You can capture compelling footage of bustling activity downtown for B-roll, invite a crew into your headquarters to film talking-head interviews for social media, shoot a full-length video on location — Seattle is the place to capture the exact kind of content your audience will react to best.

There are challenges that can keep a Seattle film shoot from proceeding as planned, especially if there isn’t an expert crew on hand. Most notably, there is the weather, defined by fog and rain in Seattle. You could also be tripped up if your production hasn’t applied for the proper permits for your chosen location. As long as you plan around these factors, they are likely to cause only minor delays. If you let them sneak up on you, however, they can slow your schedule.

At the beginning of any corporate video project, you have to decide on your working method. Will you handle all production duties in-house or work with expert creative professionals? Experienced professionals bring confidence, efficiency and experience. Every Crews Control production manager has spent at least 10 years in the industry, meaning they’re prepared to overcome challenges and seize opportunities as they come along.

Whether you’re a Seattle company hoping to make a quick video in your proverbial backyard or a national organization looking for a little Pacific Northwest flavor, creating a video with an experienced Seattle camera crew is a recipe for success.

Unique factors around filming in Seattle

Making your Seattle video production work means understanding the city’s advantages and drawbacks. This is the difference between a generic filming strategy and one that suits your location. Crews Control teams, with their decades of experience, are the perfect partners when you’re planning out shots and locations. Here are a few best practices our camera crews have learned in the Emerald City:

  • Work with the local film office: Your production can run into trouble if you haven’t acquired the right permits for your planned shots. Thankfully, these documents are easy to obtain if you work closely with the Office of Film and Music. This agency has plenty of resources for productions in the area.
  • Don’t count on sun: If you need an outdoor shot on a sunny day, you should be prepared to wait. Seattle, living up to its misty reputation, is cloudy over 200 days a year, and rainy approximately 150 days. You should waterproof your gear if you’re working outside. Of course, there is an upside — the rain keeps the local green spaces verdant.
  • Plan your driving routes carefully: Be ready for traffic in the Seattle metro area. Interstate 5, the main north-to-south route through the city, is often very slow at rush hour. Factor extra driving time into your shooting schedule to make sure your goals are achievable.
  • Know the best spots for iconic shots: It’s hard to miss the Space Needle, but where’s the best place to film it from? You can capture a great view from Queen Anne Hill. If visibility is good that day, you’ll get the Space Needle, city skyline and Mt. Rainier all in one frame. If you’d rather have up-close mountain footage, you can find natural wonders such as the Cascades and Mt. Rainier within a three-hour drive.

Crews Control production managers can use insider knowledge like this to keep your shoot moving effectively, while always capturing the city at its best. This keeps the production on schedule while ensuring the finished product represents your brand well.

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.

Thanks

Dan

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!
