Boston Video Production Studio Helps Heal Community

In the wake of a devastating event that shook Duxbury to its core in January of 2023, Indresano Studios had the privilege of telling the remarkable story of Father Bob Deehan, the devoted priest of Holy Family Church. We witnessed firsthand how Father Bob emerged as a guiding light, offering solace and strength to a community in turmoil, showcasing the resilience and compassion that defines both him and our studio’s commitment to sharing impactful narratives.

The incident, which resulted in the heartbreaking loss of three young children in Duxbury, left the community reeling with grief and disbelief. Amidst the darkness, Father Bob emerged as a beacon of hope and strength, offering his unwavering support to those in need.

In our video, we witness the remarkable strength of the Duxbury community as they come together in the midst of hardship. Father Bob’s compassionate leadership and unwavering dedication shine through, showing the profound difference he made during these difficult times.

We interviewed Father Bob, alongside a police officer who was one of the first responders on the scene the day of the tragedy, the former nanny of the three children, an employee of the Holy Family Parish, and a parishioner from the church.

Stephanie Williams is a parishioner and a volunteer at the Holy Family Church in Duxbury, MA.
Matt Bensman is the Director of Family Faith Formation at Holy Family Church.
Duxbury native Friend S. Weiler Jr. was recently promoted to Deputy Chief of Duxbury Police Department.
Alyssa McNaughton, a former nanny, cared for the children involved in the tragedy.
Father Bob Deehan, having been ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Boston in 1983, serves as the Pastor of Holy Family Catholic Church in Duxbury.

One of the most moving aspects of Father Bob’s response was his ability to foster unity through prayer and reflection. The candle light vigil that he held was a source of comfort for many struggling to make sense of the tragedy.

Our video serves as a testament to the strength of faith and community, reminding us of the transformative power of compassion and solidarity in the face of adversity. We invite you to watch our video and join us in celebrating the remarkable journey of healing led by Father Bob Deehan and the resilient community of Duxbury, MA.

Non-Profit Videos in Boston (Part 3)

One of our passions at Indresano Studios is working with Boston non-profits to help show how their organizations go above and beyond for our community.

The Importance of Non-Profit Videos

Raising awareness and getting donors is one of the challenges that non-profits often face. Something that helps are videos that show exactly what your organization is all about.

Videos are a great marketing tool to have under a non-profit’s belt! Not only can they be used as the main attraction at an event, but they can be posted on your website, sent in email campaigns, and published across social media. It is an effective method of getting your organization’s name out there and raising awareness, which goes hand in hand with getting more donors.

This blog is the 3rd and final part in our series here we highlight our studios collaborations with non-profits across the New England area. Check out part 1 and part 2 of our series to see what we’ve covered so far! Let’s recap more of the non-profit videos we have made for South Boston Community Health Center (SBCHC) and South Boston Catholic Academy (SBCA), as well as a video we made of Boston’s empty streets at the beginning of the pandemic.

About South Boston Community Health Center

We were thrilled to help South Boston Community Health Center (SBCHC) and its team of Youth Ambassadors spread the word about getting vaccinated.

Empty Streets – Boston Strong Video

Our team at Indresano Studios looks at every situation through a creative lens, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Our dedicated team of shooters spent multiple days in masks and personal protective equipment shooting the empty streets of Boston. We always do whatever it takes to get the shot and this video project is no exception.

We set out to document life in the city during the pandemic, which you can see in the above footage. As a Boston based production studio, our love for this city is unparalleled. We made this video to honor all those affected by the virus and everyone doing their part to save lives. We are all in this together. We are Boston Strong!


Indresano Studios has won several awards for videos made for Boston non-profits. We are incredibly grateful to be given the chance to highlight the exceptional work that these organizations do. Videos are great tools to show people the difference your non-profit makes in the community.

We are a full service video production studio that handles all aspects of a shoot. Everything from vision & conceptualization to editing & color grading is done in-house at Indresano Studios. This includes story boarding, casting, production, filming, editing, color grading to final deliverables – you name it, we do it.

Non-Profit Videos in Boston (Part 2)

Indresano Studios loves to show the work that non-profits do through a creative lens by providing high-quality videos that highlight their outstanding employees, as well as people who’s lives they change for the better.

The Importance of Non-Profit Videos

Non-profits often struggle with fundraising – that’s where we come in. Videos are so versatile and can have a long shelf-life, even after being launched at an event. They can be front and center on your website’s about page, or spliced up into clips that can be used in email blasts or throughout social media!

Creating a video is a huge step in showing people exactly what a difference their donations make to your cause. It’s not often a donor is able to get an insider look into everything your organization offers. Showing your organization’s work in a creative manner is a great way to gain familiarity.

We have a new section of our website to highlight some work we have done with non-profits based in Boston. This blog is a part 2 – check out part 1 here. Now, let’s recap some of the non-profit videos we have made for SPOKE!


About SPOKE

SPOKE (formerly Medicine Wheel Productions) is a non-profit organization founded by Michael Dowling. Their mission is to transform Greater Boston communities from the inside out by inviting all members to participate in the healing and transcendent power of public art.

They are forging a Common Path—one of inclusion and civic engagement—using art as a threshold to help individuals gain awareness of self, community, and the human condition. These next five videos show how they achieve this.

SPOKE At The Threshold Video

This video tells a story at the intersection of art, human interconnectivity, and emotional healing. The goal of the video was to showcase the transformation happening within our client’s organization and to also serve as a tribute piece of the owner’s lifelong work.

SPOKE – Hand-in-Hand Program

Hand-in-Hand, a program created by SPOKE, is an opportunity for at-risk youth and Boston Police officers to meet, bond, and develop a sense of compassion and understanding by spending a day working on art projects together. Hand-in-Hand gives them a space to see one another as human beings and peers, rather than as adversaries on the streets.

Hand-in-Hand Teaser

Hand-in-Hand Videos

We had the pleasure of hosting the 2019 series of Hand-in-Hand events here at Indresano Studios. In addition to hosting the event, we also produced a promotional video to help SPOKE spread their message of inclusion. Former Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans made a special appearance in this short documentary video addressing the need to raise our own awareness and take an active role in making a difference.

No Man’s Land Video

This video is one we will forever hold dear to our hearts. Thank you to Michael Dowling of SPOKE for inspiring us to create this magnificent video.


We at Indresano Studios have a vast amount of experience in working with non-profits in the Boston area. A video is an amazing way to show people what a difference your non-profit makes in the community.

Non-Profit Videos in Boston

Here at Indresano Studios, our team is passionate about creating videos that highlight the importance of non-profits, the employees who dedicate their lives to helping the community, as well as those who benefit from the work they do. That is why we work with non-profits in the Boston area.

The Importance of Non-Profit Videos

Fundraising is hard for any non-profit. Creating a video that shows the viewer exactly what their money goes towards, why it’s important to donate, and what a difference they can make in peoples’ lives, is a crucial step.

A video is something that can be played at any event, used on the website, sent in email campaigns, or published across social media. It is an easy way in this day and age to get recognition and familiarity.

We have created a new section of our website to showcase the work we have done with non-profits based in Boston. Let’s recap some of the non-profit videos we have made with Pine Street Inn!


About Pine Street Inn

Pine Street Inn is a non-profit organization vital to our community – it is one of Boston’s largest providers of shelter and support for the homeless. We at Indresano Studios eagerly offered to help show the world what that entails. Below are three of the impactful videos we have produced for them over the years.

50th Anniversary of Pine Street Inn Videos

These two videos were shown at the Pine Street Inn 50th Anniversary celebration where it was met with enthusiasm by many of Boston’s top corporate contributors to Pine Street Inn, as well as by the Mayor at the time, Marty Walsh, who is featured in the video. We were truly humbled by this project, and by the men and women of Pine Street who work 24/7 to eradicate homelessness in Boston.

Indresano Studios revisited Pine Street Inn to spotlight Boston’s homeless women, often overlooked and at risk. We showcased Pine Street’s dedicated shelter and housing for women, offering a glimpse into their lives and the support provided. From basic essentials to self-sufficiency programs, Pine Street offers hope and a fresh start.

Transform a Life Video

This project for Pine Street Inn was one of the most rewarding projects we have done. It shows how important it is to donate to their cause and how much it can change someone’s life.


We have won several awards for videos we have made for non-profits in the Boston area. It is incredibly rewarding to help them spread awareness and increase donations. A video is a great way to showcase everything you have to offer and what your non-profit does for the community.

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.

SPOKE founder and director Michael Dowling takes us through the organization’s legacy with the help of the board of directors and those who make SPOKE possible.

Learn more about Michael and SPOKE’s mission by watching our video below.

Previously known as Medicine Wheel, SPOKE was created to transform the lives of Boston’s youth. 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.

PINE STREET INN VIDEO

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Pine Street Inn, one of Boston’s largest providers of shelter and support for the city’s homeless population. In recognition of this milestone, and to give back to the community, we here at Indresano Studios have embarked on a documentary project with the Pine Street Inn in an effort to highlight the important work the Pine Street Inn provides to the city of Boston. The goals of this project are to give voice to Boston’s homeless community and to spread awareness of the resources still needed to support and re-house the city’s homeless population.

A moving quote from a Pine Street Inn Guest

The team’s first objective was to collect stories. The most effective way to humanize the issue of homelessness is to spread personal stories, experiences, and words.

The Indresano Studios team strategizes how to best capture these personal stories

Our team had the opportunity to interview three homeless men, John, Ray, and Jamil, on the first day of the shoot. In the interviews, our team learned details about each man’s past that led them to homelessness, their struggles to find housing and their hopes and goals for the future.

The team’s 4th interview of the day was with Nelson, the director of the Pine Street Inn’s Outreach Program. The Pine Street Inn has multiple vans traveling Boston 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to help bring the Pine Street Inn’s support to people in need, rather than leaving them on their own to secure transportation to the shelter.

Nelson, Director of Pine Street Inn’s Outreach Program

Our team also had the distinct privilege of accompanying the outreach team on a particularly snowy night. Members of the outreach team supplied blankets, hot food, and other forms of support to members of Boston’s homeless community.

As this project progresses, we hope to bring further updates to our readers. For now, it’s back to work on the Pine Street Inn’s 50th anniversary video!
