You’ve been tasked with getting a video produced for your company or organisation. You want to impress your boss, so you reach out to a quality vendor, like Grizzly Bear Media (Great choice!). During the early discussions, you have been asked whether you want your video produced in a studio or on-location. So which one is for you? 

When deciding between shooting In-Studio or On-Location the answer is usually pretty simple. Studio. Well, most of the time. There’s far less pros to shooting On-Location than one might think.

While there are distinct advantages to each option it really comes down to control. If control was the only factor, then a studio far exceeds the capabilities of shooting on-location 99.9% of the time.

On-Location shooting can be inexpensive, can feel more authentic (representing your brand), and doesn’t normally require set design, however, it can take a great amount of time and effort to schedule, and lighting and audio can be impacted due to the less controlled environment.

Is it raining? Is it too bright? Are people being too noisy? Is your venue available? Will your customers be impacted? These are questions you will need to ask yourself when deciding which is right for you.

In-Studio shooting is much more convenient and controlled, with lighting, sound and set design on-site. Rain, hail and shine, you can shoot in a studio, leaving it as a preferred option for many of our customers. Some reasons against In-Studio shooting however include that it can be a more expensive option, and can be inauthentic, of course, depending on your needs.
