An award-winning crew for your Toronto video production

If you’re planning an ambitious video production in Canada, Toronto looms large as the obvious choice of location. As the country’s biggest metropolis and a hotbed of art and culture, Toronto has the production facilities and filming locations your company needs to produce a top-quality corporate video and related branded content. Note that over 70 film festivals and numerous Hollywood productions are based in Toronto: this is a city with the talent and infrastructure for video production, no matter how ambitious producers’ goals are.

TV and film productions in the city have included major-studio movies such as DC’s Shazam! And Suicide Squad, as well as hit shows from the Handmaid’s Tale to Star Trek: Discovery. In addition to providing studio spaces for these more fantastical works, Toronto has played itself in series including Kim’s Convenience, while also standing in for other major metropolitan areas.

Toronto is a beloved filming location for big studios because it can give so many looks. Since the city is in a temperate climate, it looks different in all four seasons. Whether you’re most interested in sunny waterfront views, atmospheric snow, flowers in the spring or blazing-red maple trees in autumn, Toronto can deliver.

If you want a modern cityscape, there’s the skyscraper corridors extending out from downtown or the always-busy Yonge-Dundas Square. There’s also an unprecedented amount of parks, and even an old-world castle, Casa Loma, which has appeared in numerous Hollywood blockbusters.

Perhaps your executive team is in town for a convention and you’re interested in live streaming panels, filming talks and  creating other event video marketing materials. Maybe multiple customers have corporate offices in Toronto and you’d like to create testimonial videos to attract potential clients. Or if you’re interested in a fully acted series of promotional clips, you can choose to work with local talent on one of the million-plus square feet of studio space in the city. The options are wide-ranging and exciting.

What makes a Toronto video production unique?

Toronto has skyscrapers, suburbs, parks and everything in between — but how do you capture them best on film? The city is home to countless sound stages and post production facilities — but which are best? The skyline is beautiful — but where can you shoot it from? With an expert Toronto video production crew, you can film with confidence.

Crews Control video personnel deliver the level of knowledge and insight that will keep a production moving smoothly, whether you’re creating explainer video content for potential customers or a training video for your own team. The following are a few of the tips our producers have picked up over their time filming in Toronto:

  • Know when you need a permit: Small-scale film predictions — for instance, two people filming b-roll in public — don’t need permits in Toronto. However, larger shoots with professional lighting do need to get approval. Furthermore, it’s important to notify managers and security services at buildings when you’re filming interiors.
  • Pick out top-quality b-roll locations: Sometimes, the best way to see a city is to get out of it. Case in point: a great view of the Toronto skyline comes from the Toronto Islands. If you’re looking for shots of downtown hustle and bustle, Bay Street and Queen Street West are winning choices.
  • Watch out for traffic: Toronto is a major metropolitan area, and that means it’s choked with traffic at rush hour — and sometimes at all hours. For multi-day shoots, you may fare best from a travel time perspective if you can book a hotel in your neighborhood of choice and not drive to the shoot at all.
  • Be aware of who else is filming: A video production that doesn’t plan ahead may end up being interrupted by yet another production. Since so many videos, TV shows and movies film in Canada, you should make sure your chosen locations are free of other crews at the times you want to use them.

When you have a Crews Control production team on your side, you can make the Toronto film infrastructure work for you, capturing the footage you need without expending excessive amounts of resources. The presence of these experts will help you create a high-quality final product.

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!
