Tips for Shooting a Video in Miami

South Florida offers a diverse backdrop for shooting a production; including: South Beach, Star Island, Key Biscayne, and other historic sites throughout the tri-county area. If you are a video producer looking to film in South Florida, here are some tips from our Miami camera crews, about location destinations.

Traveling. Miami is very spread out, unless you are staying on South Beach and shooting on South Beach, a car rental is necessary. Unlike metropolitans like New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago where you can use other forms of transit, a car is necessary for a Miami production.

Sea Bound. One of the beauties of South Florida is the ocean. Get your camera crew in Miami on a boat to shoot the ultimate, unique scene on the water. After all, you can shoot a city scene anywhere, get a real feel for Miami from the view of the sea.

Hit the Landmarks. Like most cities, Miami is known for its signature staples that are unique to the city. Some of these famous Miami landmarks are locations like South Beach in front of the Colony Hotel, the Hispanic flavor of Hialeah, and the beauty of Downtown Miami / Bayfront Park.
