You have a well-rehearsed script, a plan of action, a great crew and staff that’s willing to appear in your professional business video. Now all you need is an optimal spot to shoot it.
The right location can have a significant impact on any video. Not only does it make shooting and editing more manageable, but it also convinces the viewers that you are serious about the message you want to convey.
Looking for ideas? Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered!
Read ahead for some expert suggestions for where to shoot your next professional business video.
1. Local Media Center
Want to avoid all the hassles that come with finding the perfect spot for a video shoot? Easy. Use a media center!
This is where your local TV shows are shot, making it likely that they already have a set and all the props you need to shoot your professional video. Sure, it could be slightly more expensive to rent out the space, but the results will be worth it.
A key advantage of shooting here is that the video’s sole focus will be on its main subject. Fewer movements and no noise mean that there are better chances of achieving your goals.
2. A Coworking Space
If you want a relatively cheaper yet professional location for your video, consider coworking centers. These provide a clean, bright, and modern work environment that looks good, is large enough, and can be quiet. You can even get inspired by other professionals around you and may get a chance to collaborate with other businesses.
Besides providing the space for rent, they also give rental equipment to make the process easier for you.
Coworking centers are perfect for video shoots if you want an office location, but yours isn’t available or easy to film in. Usually, you can just get a day pass and use the space.
3. Your Office Premises
Does your video aim to highlight your brand? Or are you shooting a recruitment video? In either case, the optimal location is your office.
One of the best things about using your own space is that you don’t need anyone’s permission to put up a camera, especially if the entire building’s yours. It is a safe and easily accessible location where you can also work late if need be. You will also get plenty of natural b-roll for edits, along with complete control over sound and visuals.
Imagine how comfortable it’ll be for you and everyone involved to shoot in a place where they spend most of their day.
You can sit at your desk, show off the floor area and introduce your star performers in real-time if that’s the plan.
4. An Appropriate Outdoor Location
When it comes to the outdoors for shooting a video, you have unlimited options for private and public spots that’ll look good on film. Generally, there are no rules, but you may be required to take permissions and make payments to reserve the area for a day shoot in some cases.
Filming outdoors is relatively straightforward, with natural lights and visually appealing backdrops making it easy to cut down on the need for lighting and shooting equipment.
Depending on your video’s theme, you can choose airplane hangars, botanical gardens, and oceanfront locations with a vibe that matches the content.
Video spots are crucial in creating a video’s impact as the background adds to your idea’s delivery and reinforces how much it matters to you.
The right location sets the tone and needs equal thought and attention as any other aspect of a productive shoot. While there are many spots where you can shoot a professional business video, consider what blends naturally with the video’s theme when you select one.
