Find an award-winning crew for your Winnipeg video production

What does it take to make a great corporate video? You need a clear objective, a visual idea and, increasingly, a reliable place to film your content. In today’s highly competitive visual landscape, it pays to choose one destination to visit time and again for on-location and B-roll filming. For companies within easy travel distance of Canada’s plains, Winnipeg, Manitoba can be that place.

Winnipeg offers a mixture of modern cityscapes and classic architecture, and Manitoba has appeared on the screen as cities including Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Detroit and Vancouver. Such a versatile spot can serve your corporate video production well, as it can project small-town charm or big-city hustle.

With a clearly defined permitting system and a variety of indoor studio facilities to use during the cold Canadian winter, Winnipeg can become a year-round destination for your corporate video needs. Whether you’re most interested in the downtown core, the rolling plains or the suburban towns in between, you can find the footage you’re looking for with the aid of an on-site film crew.

Working with locally versed experts in Winnipeg

Crews Control’s teams of video professionals know the ins and outs of filming in their chosen locales. That means when you turn to us in Winnipeg, we’ll pair you with crew members who understand how to navigate the city quickly, which seasons are acceptable for outdoor filming and which spots allow you to capture the best B-roll.

These experts can parse the regulations around applying for a filming permit. For instance, receiving permission to shoot footage isn’t the final regulatory step. Depending on your chosen location, there may be more work to do, such as arranging for road closures or notifying residents and businesses of filming in their area. Experienced video professionals will help you ensure you cross off every compliance checklist item.

In addition to their knowledge of local rules and geography, Crews Control team members are skilled in both the artistic and technical aspects of filmmaking. This means when you’re working with one of our crews, your talent and internal stakeholders can focus on their own roles, confident the shoot will run smoothly.

Our video production services in Winnipeg

Today’s corporate videos fulfill a wide variety of purposes. If you choose to produce internal videos in Winnipeg, you can opt for useful content like quarterly C-suite updates or custom training modules that promote engagement and loyalty. External content, by contrast, is designed to bring your message to a wide audience through video types including TV commercials, event live streams and product explainers. You can also produce both internal and external videos for a fully featured media strategy.

When working with an expert video crew, you have total control over the visual style of your content. Some video styles — including feature-length documentaries and commercials — look best with impressive, Hollywood-level visual polish. Other content styles, such as social media marketing clips, are well-suited to a casual, off-the-cuff appearance that conveys candid honesty. You can find an aesthetic that fits your brand’s overall objectives.

Unique factors about filming in Winnipeg

No two cities are quite alike as filming destinations. In today’s competitive video production landscape, it’s worth investigating your chosen location to find distinctive opportunities you can spin to your advantage. Once you and your Crews Control team arrive in Winnipeg, you’ll quickly discover facts including:

  • Manitoba can look like any place: As with several Canadian cities, Winnipeg is a go-to destination for movie and TV crews looking for a versatile home base. This has meant doubling as nineteenth-century Kansas City and Boston, as well as modern-day Chicago and New York. The nearby countryside has played the Pacific Northwest, the Midwest, the Arctic and more.
  • Winnipeg hosts multiple soundstages: If your video concept involves considerable indoor shots or green-screen work, Winnipeg can accommodate your shoot within one of its studio complexes. The first purpose-built soundstage facility opened in 1997, and it has since been joined by a second, measuring 187,000 square feet.
  • Drone filming has its own permission system: Capturing aerial footage of Manitoba’s vast plains is an exciting prospect, but you’ll have to abide by a specific set of rules to get your drone in the air. The Film Office requires productions to stay in contact about drone flights, and drones larger than 250 grams also need Transport Canada and NavCan permission.
  • Winter presents opportunities: While the winter months get too cold to film general-purpose footage in Winnipeg, there is an opportunity to capture beautiful, frosty landscapes. Wintery B-roll, including sights such as icicle-laden trees and frozen ponds and rivers, can add local character to your videos.

Whatever side of Winnipeg you’re most excited to uncover, you and your Crews Control team will discover plenty of fascinating locales to film. The potential of the city and its surrounding province will draw you back, time after time.

Our Winnipeg video crews: Experience and gear

Working with an experienced and skilled director of photography is one of the surest ways to keep your video production on track.

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!
