  • Equipment

The quality of your equipment is going to be the quality of your film. Depending on what you want your video to look like, you’ll need to acquire the essentials like a video camera, tripod, camera light, lighting kit, shotgun mic, boom pole, wireless mics, cables, and laptops just to get started.

Pros and Cons of Filming in Boston


  • 35 Universities

Not only are these university grounds gorgeous, but they have also built a community of intellectuals and artists. MIT and Harvard are just a few of the 35 universities found in this small city.

  • Pedestrian friendly

Boston is great for walking and biking! Get from one shot to the next with ease in this very walkable city.

  • Rich history

There is a ton of rich American history around every corner in this city. Follow a map or just wander around and you’re sure to find something miraculous.

  • Sports fanfare

Need a lively crowd for your video? The fanfare for sports teams in Boston is unmatched!

  • Beautiful city

New England is known for its natural and historic beauty. There are plenty of aesthetically pleasing places to film in Boston at any time of the year.


  • High cost of living

Being the largest populated city in New England, Boston’s rent and cost of living has gone up significantly and will continue to grow as the city evolves.

  • Roadwork is dreadful

This is a city that is always under construction. Plus, the roads were built to be windy, small, and as a result, end up being confusing to follow. It’s easy to get lost while driving and you’ll inevitably find a road closed off for repairs.

  • Home games = traffic

Bostonians love their Patriots, Bruins, and Red Sox to the point of self-identity. So when it’s game time, expect every major road into the city and every street near these stadiums to be a complete mess.

  • Cold, wet, snowy

Slushy roads, wet shoes, Nor’easters. Boston is cold and nasty, weatherwise, during the chillier months. So bundle up when filming in Boston!

No trip to Boston is complete without visiting the 90-year-old, 500-pound green sea turtle: Myrtle the Turtle. She is a legend at the New England Aquarium alongside hundreds of other rare and beautiful aquatic species who attract thousands of visitors every year.

  • Fenway Park

One of the oldest and most beloved baseball parks in the country, Fenway Park is home to the Boston Red Sox. Walk Yawkey Way and take in the full immersion and majesty of a classic baseball experience. Hot dogs, beers, songs, and fanfare await!

  • Freedom Trail
