Melbourne has so many excellent video production locations that can really enhance the quality of your corporate video. It’s one thing to have a backdrop that looks great. More importantly, there needs to be coherence between the subject of the video and the setting.
Here are 4 of our favourite locations in Melbourne:
Red Bluff Cliffs
A beautiful location near Black Rock beach in Bayside Melbourne. A sheltered beach framed by large red sand dunes. The best time of day to shoot here is in the late afternoon when the sun hangs low in the west. The light is magical. This area has become a favourite among drone enthusiasts, who love shooting video around the cliffs, as well as flying the drone out to the HMVS Cerbrus ship wreck a few hundred metres off the beach.
What’s so special about Studley Park is that it’s an authentic Australian bushland location only a few kilometres from the Melbourne CBD. There are many picturesque spots where the Yarra River runs through the forest. This location is obviously a very accessible region for nature video productions. It’s also become popular for car and cycling shoots.
Albert Park Lake
From a video point of view, Albert Park Lake is powerful because you get the classic view of the lake in the foreground, and the Melbourne skyline in the background. This is probably the main reason that this location was selected for the Melbourne Gran Prix: An opportunity to showcase the city to a massive global TV audience.
St Kilda has always been known as Melbourne’s playground, and features many iconic, quirky and historical locations: The ‘mouth’ entrance to Luna Park, the St Kilda pier, botanical gardens and the beach – there are so many great locations for video in St Kilda.
