Find an award-winning crew for your Zurich video production

Corporate video production is only becoming more competitive and higher stakes as the years pass. This means your company needs to consider setting up a reliable base to shoot both on-location and in-studio content, somewhere with the views and infrastructure to empower your video marketing efforts. If you’re based in or near Switzerland, Zurich can become that destination for your brand.

Nestled under the Swiss Alps and surrounding Lake Zurich, the Swiss metropolis has long been a major business and tourism destination, and can accommodate video productions of all sizes. Whether you prefer the cobblestones and towers of the Old Town or the more modern sights and sounds of the industrial quarter, the city looks great on film — and with rugged natural landscapes nearby, you’ll never have to travel far to get the footage you’re after.

Zurich is well-served by public transportation options, allowing smaller production crews to move smoothly around the city, and the international airport is just 15 minutes from downtown. The combination of convenience and striking landscapes makes it a promising spot to shoot video — especially if you have the aid of a local professional video crew.

Working with local experts in Zurich

Crews Control’s teams of video professionals are all well-versed in the regions where they operate. That means when you call on Crews Control in Zurich, you’ll be matched with experts  ready to help you avoid rush hour traffic, find the best B-roll locations in the city or the Alps and help you with everyday matters such as currency conversion and interpreting.

Translation can be particularly important, and is closely tied to the process of securing film permits: Applications for permits must be filled out in German. It should be noted that the most commonly spoken form of German in the city is Alemannic Swiss German, with other locals speaking French, Italian, English and the Swiss-specific Rätoromanisch. Your Crews Control can chart a path through the many dialects and ensure you always feel at home.

In addition to providing regional insights, Crews Control teams are highly skilled at the technical and creative aspects of filmmaking. They can ensure your shoot runs smoothly, so your internal stakeholders and talent can keep their focus on their own roles and responsibilities.

Unique details about filming in Zurich

Every city in the world has its unique character as a filming location. Even within Switzerland, no two locales are quite the same. Fortunately, when you work with Crews Control, it’s easy to puzzle out the opportunities and challenges of each region. A few of the details you’ll encounter in Zurich, as explained by director of photography Roni Ulmann, include:

  • A pleasant summer, a frigid winter: Switzerland has a well-deserved reputation as a winter sports haven, but that does mean it gets cold. Unless you’re specifically filming a snowy B-roll, it’s likely best to stay away in the winter and focus on the June-August period. The rainiest months of the year begin in August.
  • Both new and old sections of town: Highlights of modern Zurich include the 36-floor Prime Tower, which looks especially impressive at sunset. Outside the industrial quarter, you can find the Old Town, which contains well-preserved medieval and Renaissance buildings.
  • A view from the Alps: Looking down on the city from the nearby mountains is one of the best ways to get a good overview of Zurich. The peaks of Käferberg and Waidberg are notable local mountains, and they provide excellent vantage points for capturing distinctive B-roll.
  • Excellent transportation options: Zurich has a fully developed transit network, all accessible through the same day-pass system. For light crews with a minimum of gear, there may be no need to rent a car or arrange for a van. If, on the other hand, hiring a driver is unavoidable, it’s best to be wary of the morning and afternoon rush hours.

With the aid of a Crews Control team, you can quickly turn Zurich into the site for high-quality corporate video production. Working on that project, you’ll doubtless pick up plenty of ideas for your next creative endeavor.

Our Zurich video crews: Experience and gear

One of the surest ways to keep your Zurich video shoot on schedule and under budget is to work with an experienced director of photography. When there’s an industry veteran on set to call the shots, you can be confident the day will proceed smoothly, even if unexpected circumstances arise. This is why Crews Control works with directors of photography who have spent at least 10 years in the industry and can put their expertise toward your objectives.

These experienced crew members have access to the latest and greatest in filmmaking technology to ensure they’re able to capture footage that will look great for years to come, even as audience expectations climb ever higher. Whether on location or in the studio, effective gear is another vital component in an easy, proactive video shoot. Crews Control teams use technology manufactured by Sony, Panasonic, Canon, JVC, Ikegami, Thompson (Philips), Hitachi, RED and Arriflex.

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!
