What is a location shoot?

A location shoot is effectively footage that’s obtained outside of a professional studio and can take place indoors aswell as outdoors, weather depending of course!

Capturing footage on location gives a finished video a real sense of authenticity; bringing the subject matter quite literally to life for an audience. If you’re planning an event, day or night, a location shoot is an absolute must as there’s no better way of conveying the event’s atmosphere to viewers than filming the action as it happens.

In the corporate world, location shoots are ideal for giving audiences a ‘behind the scenes’ look into your business, or that of a client; from acting as a professional backdrop for stakeholder interviews through to showcasing world-class premises, equipment or customer service.

For clients with very specific requirements, locations may need to be sourced. Depending on the budget & brief, there are a whole host of private venues available for hire. Alternatively, many public spaces are free but require permissions to be obtained prior to filming as well as Public Liability insurance to be held by the crew.

Take a look at a selection of our recent interviews below to help give you some inspiration!
