BOSTON VIDEO & PHOTO PET CASTING

Do you ever look at your pet and wish they could help you pay rent?

Indresano Studios hosted a Pet Casting Call Day earlier this month to find the paw-fect pets for a commercial job. We had the pleasure of meeting several dogs and cats that were ready to put in the work and become stars!


Here are just a few of our four-legged friends:

Coconut

Coconut is fun and energetic! He was very excited to be visiting the studio and getting his beauty shots in.

Elle

Elle was nervous for her first time in the studio. However, a couple of treats would make anyone feel better!

Morrigan

Morrigan was our youngest dog in the studio! Her energy was infectious, and she got everyone in the studio excited for the day ahead.

Timber

Timber had no problem following instructions during our shoot. He went above and beyond and deserves a round of a-paws.

Arlo

Arlo came in camera ready on casting day. He was an expert when it came to posing in front of the camera. He made sure we got all his good angles!

Kona

Kona was so happy being in the studio and felt right at home! We can’t help but smile when we see his floppy ears and shining personality.

Scrappy

Scrappy’s name fits him perfectly! Though he may be small in stature, he makes up for it with an adorable face and powerful pose.

Luca

Luca loved having the spotlight! He thought the food was delicious…even though he did have a hard time keeping it in the bowl.


These pets brought their A-game to our casting day! Our in-house team worked tirelessly to make sure these pets had a fantastic time modeling on set. We were so excited to meet each one of them! 

This marks another successful casting call for Indresano Studios!

BOSTON NONPROFIT SPOKE VIDEO

Indresano Studios loved working with the people of SPOKE. Located in the Greater Boston area, “MW Productions/SPOKE activates the transformative power of art to heal divisions, strengthen community, and drive social progress.” SPOKE uses various forms of art as a way for young people to better understand themselves as well as increase their understanding of the world around them.

Their new building on Old Colony will give the people of Boston a safe space to create and heal together through all forms of art including visual media, dance, and poetry performances. SPOKE encourages youth to use art as a means of expression and to help strengthen ties within their community.

Our in-house team worked hard to create a thought-provoking video that highlighted the non-profit. We were there every step of the way through creating storyboards, conducting interviews, shooting, editing, color correction and sound design.

Meet the people who help keep SPOKE running.

Donut CGI

What better way to combine our strong background in food photography and our skills in CGI than to produce a Donut CGI video? For this CGI animation, we wanted the audience to be taken into an imaginary world we created entirely from Computer Generated Imagery, which gives a nod to classic children’s wonderlands like Candyland or Willy Wonka.

 

Our decision to focus on donuts we can owe in part to our sugar cravings, but it also was an environment in which we could play with inclusions and complementary foods, similar to how we capture food photography environments on set.

Under our director’s vision, our talented CGI team sketched a storyboard that went through multiple revisions. Once the storyboard was approved, the team worked on an animatic based on 2D drawings which you can see below.

The music was also very important for this project and we wanted something that expressed childlike wonder. The song we ultimately settled on was both catchy and fun for both kids and adults. We know we couldn’t stop humming it during the workday!

The next steps after the animatic involved 3D modeling, lighting, rigging and texturing. You can see some stills from the environment as it started to come together. These stills are from before final texture was added.

How to Stand Up to a Bully: Natalia’s World

Our in-house animation team for our series Natalia’s World has been hard at work this month! From writing scripts, to creating storyboards, to recording voiceovers at our studio — we’ve put our heart and soul into making this fun and educational animated series for children.

Our cartoon series follows spunky 9-year-old Natalia, who navigates life, school, friends and family! She has the help of her magical moral compass to guide her through hard decisions, as she tries to do the right thing. Our series is based on our director and executive producer’s children, Natalia and Michael, in real life!

We had the most fun recording voiceovers in the studio! Natalia (9 yrs) and Michael (5 yrs) were true professionals, adding flare, personality and excitement to their delivery of lines! Not to mention, they’re adorable!

We released our most recent episode “How to Stand up to a Bully,” where Natalia must figure out how to deal with a bully at school. It was exciting seeing all of our revisions, edits, and animations come together for the final result.

A huge thank you to Ultimate Self Defense in South Boston, for participating in the video and encouraging morals of strength and courage amongst young people! We were excited to have the owner, Andrea ‘Sensei,’ record voiceover for the role of the Judo Instructor in this episode!

Boston Home Inspectors

We had the opportunity recently to produce a marketing video for Boston Home Inspectors for their website and social media. We created a personable video that captured how this father-and-son business perform home inspections for everyone, spanning from experienced home buyers to first time home buyers. They service Boston and the Greater Boston area.

We did everything from creating the script, putting together a storyboard, interviewing the subjects, to the physical shooting and editing. It was rewarding seeing this video come to life, and how it embodied the loyalty and trust that the company has worked hard to create.

We shot this video over two separate days, capturing B-roll on location and interviewing James, the owner of BHI, and his two sons, Devin and Aidan, at our full-service commercial Studio in South Boston. We wanted to ensure that we illustrated the company’s mission and what they stood for. We captured the detail, thorough nature, and love that is put into each inspection.

We scouted three locations in advance of the shoot and on the shoot day we had James and his sons do walk throughs of each home, checking the houses for items they would look for on a regular inspection. We were able to capture the inspectors in their natural element this way.

We also deployed a drone to get establishing shots of Boston for the video. Our talented drone operator captured some nice shots of the city from the roof of one of the houses.

It was clear the inspection team was talented and hard working as they took us through their process and shared some fun stories of things they uncovered during their inspections. The inspectors were not afraid to crawl into dark basements or enclosed areas so our crew could capture some cinematic shots!

If you’re a first time home buyer, or are just looking for a home inspection, be sure to check out Boston Home Inspectors! And in the meantime, check out the marketing video below!

This year was filled with many fulfilling video projects like the video we created for South Boston Catholic Academy’s Set Sail fundraising campaign. Check out the full video below.

We also worked on many CGI projects, like the CGI video for the Louis Moinet Rosetta Stone Tourbillon watch below. We created this entire video using CGI. Everything you see here from lighting, texturing, rigging, and animating was done in house.

Our full service production studio used our CGI skills to put an artistic spin on National Grid’s beautiful energy saving products.

FURNITURE PHOTO SHOOT

Our studio specializes in product photography and we got to use our product photo skills in our latest office furniture photo shoot. Check out some of the images below!

Our talented set builders created and painted an office space in our studio space to achieve the clean and modern final result for this furniture photo shoot.

Our full service production team worked hard to style the props and furniture in the strongest possible way so that the beauty of the office furniture could really shine. Art direction and creative direction from our talented product photographer was crucial for this commercial product photo shoot.

The goal was to keep the set we built in studio as minimalist as possible to highlight the beautiful details of the products themselves. Our team knows exactly how to light products in order to highlight the best qualities and create strong final product images.

COMMERCIAL PRODUCT PHOTO SHOOT

Our Boston based photo and video studio specializes in creating eye-catching product photography and product videos. Our latest product shoot features a collection of innovative and beautifully designed office supplies.

This particular product photo campaign featured the office supplies in environments to give customers a better idea of how the products will look in real life workplace situations. The below product image features a portable power bank customers can carry in their purse.

Working from home has become much more common in the post-Covid corporate world so our creative team made sure to also capture environment images of the products in home settings.

Our talented prop stylist kept the props simple and minimalist yet realistic for this commercial product photo shoot. We always make sure the products shine in the final images by using careful art direction, lighting, composition and retouching in all our product photo shoots.

We also captured the stunning products on a white background to let the beauty of the products speak for themselves.

Our creative team spent quality time composing the best possible group shot for this family of products to show the whole family of products that come together.

The products that were shot in real life environments were also shot on white to give the client flexibility in how and where the final images are shown.

BOSTON’S BEST SHOE PHOTOGRAPHY

Our studio’s talented shoe photographer got to show off skills in one of our latest shoe photography shoots. Check out some of the final images below!

Puma teamed up with the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 to create the Faster+ collection. These spikes allow athletes to be faster, lighter, and more dynamic than ever. Our creative production team worked hard to highlight the impressive shoe technology in all the final shots, like the one below.

These innovative shoes have a lot of beautiful details including the captivating iridescent design on the bottom of the spikes. Our talented shoe photographer used years of lighting knowledge and expertise to show off the gorgeous design.

The bottom of the spikes is not the only impressive and thoughtful detail of the Faster+ collection. The fabric of the shoes also has a lot of eye-catching detail.

Our creative team used our Hasselblad H6D to get in even closer to highlight the spike’s beautiful design.

When all of the intricate details of the spike come together, it creates a powerful and impressive full picture as shown in the below profile shot.

Puma’s Faster+ collection is full of not only beautifully designed shoes, but technologically smart and well made spikes. Our full service production team is thrilled to have been able to capture this amazing new collection.
