We always love an adventure, and when we were preparing for a recent photo shoot and full video production, we know we had one! We were all blown away by the final product:

To go along with the video series, the client also wanted some photography work done. The goal was dramatic and sleek looking images to promote a health care leadership program. Check out some of the images from the series below!



Next up was the video, which required a lot of components working together in synch. We had to make custom props,  hire pyrotechnicians and  find the highest caliber slo-mo camera to make the shot look just right.

We started our day with the preparation: our pyrotechnician drilled into the back of the mercury staffs  in order to make room for the explosives.


Back inside, his son (and partner), was gluing in the detonation cord, or det cord for short. It might look like harmless laces or rope, but it packs some serious power!


The finished product was prepped for the shoot by being strung up in midair.


In order to capture all the details of the blast, we needed a camera with a very high frame per second, like the Phantom Flex shown below.



Explosions are messy; we had to make sure we protected the camera behind some plexy! Cleaning between takes definitely took some time but the final product was well worth it.


After the explosive shots, we needed some shots of the aftermath as well. After switching the Phantom to the dolly we were ready for action!



Before breaking down our explosive set, we couldn’t help but experiment with a few other products. Check out the video below!


The average speed of a hockey puck flying across the ice in a NHL game is between 80-110 mph. What does it take to stop a projectile traveling at such a velocity? The answer is MORE speed. We found out just how that lighting reflex works when famed goalie Tuukka Rask from the Boston Bruins came to the studio for a video and photo shoot.


We had to get in close while filming the eyes that see what most people can’t.


Michael preps a photograph of Tuukka adjusting his Franklin gloves.


You have to be prepared before approaching a goal guarded by this stare!


Nothing like a little smoke to add to the mood!


After the shoot, Tuukka got down low for some knee hockey with a few of his younger fans.


He wrapped up the day with autographs for the kids who attended the shoot!

Here’s hoping there’s no turkey disasters in the kitchen! Hope everyone has a fun and safe Thanksgiving!


The New England Patriots might be superstars on the field this year, but the work they do off the field is truly inspirational. In particular, Jerod Mayo’s charity bowling event for the Boston Medical Center showcases the great support the players have for each other and the community.

So you can understand why were so excited to be the videographers for the event. We were ready and set up well before the red carpet started, which started a long wait for the excitement to begin!


The carpet was quickly a buzz when Jerod Mayo and his family showed up. We were fortunate enough to get the exclusive spot right by the door and got the chance to talk to many players including Malcolm Butler, Nate Solder, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman!


Kim Zyotti, the owner of Blue Sky Entertainment and the person who helped to make the whole event happen also took the time to talk to us about the charity and all the good it’s done for the community. Over the last 6 years, the annual event has helped to raise over one million dollars for the Boston Medical Center!screen-shot-2015-10-01-at-12-39-20-pm1

There was even a back door entrance from Tom Brady! While he managed to sneak by our red carpet interviews, our own Michael Indresano got the chance to say a quick hello.


Then it was time for the main event: bowling! Mayo, his family, and other Patriots players bowled alongside teams of fans.

Julian Edelman celebrates a bowling victory in a slightly more reserved manner than on the field.


Although he was focused on bowling strikes, Edelman also managed to spare a moment to talk with our production team!


Malcom Butler watches as his teammates compete for the best score!


There was also a pool tournament in a second room, where a select few got the chance to shoot pool with players, including Nate Solder or Sebastian Vollmer.


Last up was the auction, which brought “the Chandlers” together to help get the crowd excited and bidding high!


By the end of the night we were exhausted, but some of our team worked through the night to edit together the video showcasing the amazing night. Check the video out below and check our blog out for other exciting behind the scenes access!


Quality and craftsmanship are two words that are synonymous with Circle Furniture. Our team was excited for the chance to work with Sprague Nelson on several commercials for the furniture retailer. We embraced the challenge of capturing all the fine details that make the pieces unique and special in the eyes of furniture buyers. Check out the final videos below and catch them on your local television channels!

Hand in Hand is an ambitious project of building rapport and extending the circle of friendship to include two often misunderstood groups of people – police officers and young adults. This project is the brainchild of Quincy native and visionary artist Michael Dowling. For over 22 years, he has spearheaded the well respected non-profit organization called Medicine Wheel Productions as its founder and artistic director. Mr. Dowling’s commitment to the positive transformation of troubled youths through art and community building has won him extensive recognition.

Michael Indresano, a board member of Medicine Wheel, did not hesitate to create a powerful video documentary that celebrates commonality and inclusion, further addressing hot-button social/racial issues that dominate our national conversation today.

Filming the the video took place for a few months and required countless hours of post production. Michael and his team were instrumental in organizing all the interviews, documenting the workshops through video, photographing the portraits, editing the footage together, and acted as technical consultant to all matters relating to video and photo. The video creation process started with a dedicated team of professionals bringing together their diverse skill set and industry know-how into conceptualizing a story. Many hours of brainstorming took place at our 33 A Street studio in South Boston. Michael Indresano led the team as director overseeing the entire creative process. With over 22 years of award-winning photography expertise, he is no stranger to the world of visual story telling. A true seasoned professional and master of detail, Michael directed the camera crew and lighting technicians with precise angles and adjustments; infusing every shot with a consistent degree of thought, emotion, and impact, further driving the message with vigor and determined vision.

The final video release was launched at the Medicine Wheel Turning The Wheel Annual Fundraiser at the Nixon Peabody law firm to exuberant applause. Attendees of the event included Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans, Boston City Councilor at large Ayanna Pressley, Community Affairs Liaison for the Boston Redevelopment Authority Mark McGonagle (MW Chair of the Board of Directors), Boston Police Deputy Superintendent Nora L. Baston, Vice President at Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Karen Young, Community Involvement Director for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Janelle Woods-McNish, Executive Director of South Asian Arts Council Amit Dixit, State Auditor Suzanne M. Bump, along with many more prominent high profile public officials and loyal Medicine Wheel supporters voicing their support for this project.

A beautiful sunset to wrap up day one!


Here it is, the moment we have all been waiting for! From Boston to California to Malaysia and back again, the Indresano team has wrapped up our video shoot with Jambu Adventure Designs– and an adventure it was indeed.  We are proud to have had the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing production and we cannot wait to see what you think of the final product!  Stay tuned as Indresano continues to break new ground with new and exciting multimedia ventures.


When it rained, it poured as we captured a short lifestyle video of Timberland’s Waterproof Technology in action! We learned to embrace nature as it comes and enjoy the good things. The best part of the shoot was having the option to stay dry and deciding not to.


Where do we even begin with our trip to Malaysia?! We traversed half way around the globe from Boston to Penang for the second and final stop of our video shoot. Over two days, we shot in a spice garden, a tropical fruit farm, a butterfly sanctuary, the Penang national forest, on the beautiful beaches, and in the thick of the city. We filmed in tuk tuks, out of the back of a moving vehicle, in the water with our underwater camera housing, and on a boat at sunset. Our models held butterflies, rode bikes, hiked in the rainforest, and frolicked in the ocean. We worked hard in the 80% humidity and scorching temperatures, but we wouldn’t have changed one second of it! Stay tuned for Part 3, where we’ll release the final video!
