Selecting the perfect shooting location for your organisation’s corporate video can be a more challenging and complicated process than you may first anticipate. After all, there are many different competing parameters and priorities that you will need to consider for a shooting location, ranging from the sheer visual appeal of the site to the atmosphere and nearby transport links.

So with these factors in mind, here are some suggestions for what kinds of places you should consider when you wish to truly inspire with your choice of shooting location.

Historic houses

It’s no great surprise that many organisations wishing to cultivate a certain ‘old world’ aesthetic through their corporate video filming choose a historic setting such as Château Bouffémont.

After all, this venue is the quintessential French chateau, characterised by a combination of crystal chandeliers, grand reception halls, luxurious suites and all of the other trappings of an opulent and evocative historic residence.


Countryside settings

As remarkable as the above elements of our 19th-century property unquestionably are, however, no visitor can also fail to be entranced by the five hectares of greenery in which this resplendent abode is set, encompassing spectacular manicured French gardens.

All of this is to say little of the thousands of surrounding acres of the charming Montmorency Forest in the Val d’Oise. These areas in combination present you with a wealth of stimulating and intriguing places in which to shoot a suitably inspiring corporate video.


Major cities

The sights and sounds of a big European capital simply cannot be matched, and few metropolitan locations across the continent are as synonymous with glamour and high culture as Paris.

This is why you may more than welcome the opportunity to incorporate some of the ever-romantic City of Lights’ most memorable visas into your corporate video shoot.

Whether you like the idea of your organisation’s film including views of the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe or any other iconic or lesser-known Paris attractions, Château Bouffémont could serve as not only an enchanting stop-off point, but also a well-located one, a mere 40-minute drive from the centre of the city.


Almost anywhere else in France

If you have read this far, you have probably gained a sense of the magic of France as a corporate shooting location – to such an extent that you may be intrigued by the prospect of filming in places that are far from representative of what is stereotypically expected of this famously idyllic country.

While no single location can serve every conceivable set of corporate video shooting requirements, there is equally no doubt that Château Bouffémont ticks many clear boxes.

You may be initially attracted to this fairytale venue largely on account of its sophisticated and tasteful interior decor, exceptionally functional and aesthetically pleasing rooms, extraordinarily verdant surroundings or even simply its proximity to Paris.

Whatever your most specific requirements and preferences may be in relation to all things corporate video for a fashion show, product launch, business event or other key aspect of what your firm does, here at Château Bouffémont, we are continually on hand to serve you.
