Every year, the Greater Boston area produces the Hatch Awards which shine a light on the “best branding created anywhere” and celebrates creative excellence within the field. The 61st annual Hatch Awards took place last month and we at Indresano Studios were thrilled to receive multiple awards from the establishment.
We are proud to share we won six awards at this year’s Hatch Awards. Our video profiling Noelle Lambert, a Paralympian of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and a Massachusetts native, took home the bronze bowl for the Equity category. Our Nike Mercurial Video won a bronze in the Brands Amplified category.
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!

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!

Welcome to day one of production for our most recent lifestyle photo shoot. As well as my first location shoot as an intern at Indresano Studios!
My second week and we were on the road for a location shoot. Kudos to Maggie Model, Ilima for handling the heat so well in late August! She was relieved when this shot was positioned in the shade.
I stayed on my toes all day to make sure that Ilima and the product were good to go. Every member of the team did great in the hot weather.
Day one of production and my first location shoot was a success! It was great to see a full team at work for this lifestyle photo shoot. As a young creative, there was a lot to take away from the day.
We knew day two of production for this on location lifestyle shoot would be that much better when we saw this would be our view for the day!
Sabrina from Model Club was a natural on set! She looked perfectly business professional thanks to the outfits chosen for the shots by TEAM wardrobe stylist, Coleen Gannon.
Coleen and TEAM hair and makeup stylist, Paula Voisembert, were an amazing pair for this lifestyle photo shoot! They were on top of everything, especially with the wind being so strong.
A loud bang caught us off guard! The U.S.S. Constitution gave everyone a surprise visit with it’s roaring canons. What a special treat on a beautiful day, and a great way to top off day two.
A successful two days of production at two different locations. Now for the post production work. Michael and everyone involved taught me so much in just these two days.
The rush of having a heavy schedule in the early weeks of my internship was exactly what I needed. It gave me no choice but to learn more about equipment needed for on location lifestyle shoots shoots.

We recently worked on a new campaign of images and GIFs, and we knew immediately we were in for an exciting time at the studio. With two sets for a photo and video shoot, seven models and stylists, it was a packed house full of fun! Check out more below.
We started the morning off right with the energetic Courtland. With so many different models coming in overlapping times throughout the day, it was great to start the day on a high note.
When having both a photography and video shoot in a day, you need to streamline everything as much as possible. We worked seamlessly with our team to get both a photography and green screen video set in side by side.
Hair and makeup artist Alexandra from TEAM helped make sure Gabi, the model, was looking her best on both sets!
Hiding behind the racks, you can see a glimpse our wardrobe/prop stylist Coleen, also from TEAM, hard at work. She shopped for all seven models and the different props needed for the shoot- talk about shopping ’til you drop!
The high energy start to the shoot continued throughout the entire day . Just look at this excitement! It’s safe to say we had a totally awesome day with Total Wireless!
It takes 90% less energy to recycle an aluminum can than to manufacture a new one. That same amount of energy is enough to power a television for 3 hours. Also, only 27% of newspapers in the US are recycled. We would save 1 quarter of a billion trees a year if we recycled all newspapers. And, 14,000,000,000 pounds of garbage is tossed into the ocean a year, killing at least 1 million creatures.
This year, more than 192 countries, totaling over 1 billion people, came together to celebrate Earth Day to try and change these statistics.
The inspiration for our Earth Day shoot came from the idea that one small action (or drop) can create a ripple effect.
Using magic arms, we were able to get the baster we used to create the drops, in perfect position for continuous drops, giving us lots of options to work with.
Using our new Profoto lights with our Laser System, we were able to sync our lights to our new Hasselblad H6d-100c camera to capture the water drop right after it hit the surface of the water, freezing the splash and capturing the drop in mid air.
The water drop interrupts the laser beam firing the strobe lights and camera simultaneously, getting the perfect shot every time.
We placed a world map behind the set to create a reflection resembling a globe in the drop in order to capture as much in camera as possible.
After getting the perfect splash image, the team needed a solution for a larger drop. Leave it to Michael to have exactly what was needed.
To get a perfect shot of the globe like reflection, the team used a custom made acrylic drop.
