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 is fun and energetic! He was very excited to be visiting the studio and getting his beauty shots in.
Elle was nervous for her first time in the studio. However, a couple of treats would make anyone feel better!
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 had no problem following instructions during our shoot. He went above and beyond and deserves a round of a-paws.
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 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’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 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!
Stay tuned to find out who was selected by following us on our social channels.

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!

In addition to impressive animation talent, we got the chance to work with two of Boston’s top comedians, Lenny Clarke and Tony V, on a comedy video shoot for Boston Medical Center’s Stop Hunger Now campaign. Check out one of the final videos below and prepare to laugh :p
Our creative team also had the honor of helping to tell the inspiring true story of Noelle Lambert, a Paralympic athlete who competed in the 2021 Paralympic Games. You can learn more about Noelle’s story in the trailer we created below.
As a team of sneaker heads, we were excited to work with some of this year’s most stylish shoes. These top of the line running sneakers were super fun to photograph. We worked hard to bring out the beautiful details of each shoe.
Our Boston based creative production team also shot for Puma’s Nitro collection. We always work with the top-of-the-line stylists to prep the shoes for all of our shoe photo and shoe video shoots.
Our full service creative production team also shot multiple product videos and product photos in 2021. Our dedicated team of camera operators, our talented Director and Photographer, and our in-house Producers worked together to create content for a client’s new product line. We shot images of their office supplies collection in an environment and on seamless to give the client multiple uses.
Of course it wouldn’t be a year at Indresano Studios without appetizing food photo shoots and food video shoots. We especially built up our ice cream photography portfolio in 2021. Check out a few highlights below!
We also had many successful food video shoots and food photo shoots. It was hard to not eat all the yummy dishes, but somehow we resisted until after we got the shot. Camera always eats first!
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.
Our full service production studio used our CGI skills to put an artistic spin on National Grid’s beautiful energy saving products.

The Resilience video our video production team created to help tell Noelle Lambert’s story took a lot of pre-production planning, camera operating skills, talented direction and hard work. Take a look at some of the behind the scenes action below to get a better idea of what goes into creating a compelling video.
Noelle Lambert, Team USA Paralympic Runner, prepared for the on location video shoot by getting into her training mindset.
One of our many talented camera operators also got into the spirit of working out and used an exercise ball to capture the best angles for this video shoot.
Paralympic athlete Noelle Lambert stands strong, tall and proud for the camera. Noelle is the epitome of strength, resilience and courage.
Our video production team used creative lighting to give the final resilience video a no nonsense gritty feeling.
Noelle impressed our whole video production crew with not only her mental strength, but her notable physical strength as well.
We also captured B-Roll footage of Noelle in her element on the track with her running prosthetic. Noelle started her own organization called the Born to Run Foundation, which provides young amputees with specialized prosthetics that enable them to live out their athletic dreams. She personally understands the importance of a good running prosthetic and gives back as much as she can.
We also made sure to schedule an on location interview with Noelle’s running coach to shed more light on Noelle’s training process.
Noelle inspires all of us to realize “you can do anything you put your mind to”. She keeps her focus on her goals and trains tirelessly to reach them. Noelle will be competing in the Tokyo 2021 Paralympic Games representing Team USA in track. The future looks bright for Noelle Lambert.

Our studio had the pleasure of producing a comedy video shoot with two of Boston’s top comedians, Lenny Clarke and Tony V!
This video shoot was especially meaningful as it was for a great cause for Boston Medical Center & Greater Boston Food Bank’s Stop Hunger Now Campaign. We made sure to use the best equipment possible and top of the line audio equipment to capture the important message of the video.
Our Boston video production crew captured shots and audio from all angles on Castle Island in the Sullivan’s parking lot to make sure no clever line was missed. Lenny Clarke and Tony V stuck to the comedy script, but they also threw in a few “wicked” funny improvised lines.
Our crew moved to our second video shoot location of the day after a quick lunch at Sullivan’s. We packed up the production van and set up in between L Street Tavern and Sal’s for the next location of the video shoot. Our full service production team made sure to get the proper permits to close the road down for this comedy video shoot.
Boston comedian Lenny Clarke was cracking everyone up on set- including himself!
Boston stand up comedian Tony V did an excellent job on set. He delivered all of his lines perfectly and added in a few funny one liners as well!
Our team also got some great behind the scenes images with the comedy video’s two main stars! Here is our Executive Producer with both Lenny Clarke and Tony V.
Our video Director also got a quick bts shot with the two comedians.
Both of our in house studio producers also got shots with both Lenny and Tony on set.
This video comedy shoot was a huge success all thanks to our talented video production crew, hilarious comedy script writers, and top notch comedians.
In June, Indresano Studios cast a cute canine to be the dog model of a photo shoot for a new cleaning product on the market. Aura, the dog model, took to the staff and space at Indresano Studios right away, and it turns out, she was even more at home on set.
Aura took direction on set well, and followed instructions from her owner like a pro.
It was obvious she relished her new job as a dog model and loved the attention.
This golden gal knows where the toys are. If only she knew where the cleaning products were…
How could you say no to this face?
The day was a success, and Aura’s smile will soon be associated with the brand she’s promoting.
Aura was quite the celebrity even before the photo shoot. You can follow more of Aura’s activities on Instagram at the handle @Aura.the.pup
The Indresano Studios team has partnered up with Medicine Wheel Productions to host Medicine Wheel’s “Hand in Hand” event, which aims to bridge the culture gap between some of Boston’s at-risk youth and the Boston Police Department. It is a full day of bonding activities, eventually culminating in a photoshoot at Indresano Studios!
In addition to hosting the photo shoot, the Indresano team is producing a short video for Medicine Wheel’s promotional purposes.
Hand In Hand brings together Boston Police officers and young adults, most of whom have had negative experiences with police in the past, to try to understand and accept their differences by embracing their similarities; namely their humanity, and common experience.
Before the workshop began, our team interviewed a few of the young adults, as well as Medicine Wheel Director Michael Dowling and Director of Public Art and Advocacy Richard Dinsmore to learn a little more about what this program is and how it has helped the two communities become closer together.
Each young adult is paired with an officer, then the workshop begins with a meditation period. Following this, each participant writes an “I Am” poem about identity.
Partners then create a mold of their clasped hands, which is later turned into a bronzed cast. These hand-in-hand statues are then displayed at Medicine Wheel, and at any events that Medicine Wheel hosts.
After a short dinner, participants then head to Indresano Studios to get their portraits taken.
Thank you to Boston PD, and Medicine Wheel and the young adults of Medicine Wheel for letting us be a part of this important day! We’re excited to help spread the word about this amazing program.

In search of brick walls and iron bars, we at Indresano packed up a full studio’s worth of video equipment and brought it all to a stunning location in the heart of Boston.
Our heavy-hitting Sony F5 allowed us to capture this Lifestyle/Product video shoot in stunning 4K RAW. We used a very special ARRI lens to capture macro details in our client’s apparel at a phenomenal focusing distance of 3 inches!
After an extensive casting call, our client was thrilled with the performances that Kyrel (Maggie Inc.), Christian (Model Club), and Alicia (Dynasty) brought to the shoot.
The three of them had contagious energy that lasted through the entire day — not an easy feat for an all-day shoot!
Of course, our on-set producer was carefully documenting the day for posterity. Check out our Instagram for more sneak peeks from this shoot as well as others!
Our media pipeline allowed our client to preview and rate clips as the shoot progressed. This way, our editors were set to get down to business as soon as the media was ingested back at Indresano Studios.
That’s a wrap! A great video is comprised of awesome creative, great talent, a fantastic location, and a fabulous team. To see more of our video work, check out our website at www.indresano.com/video-production. To see more of our work, check out our main website at www.indresano.com.
