Dog & Cat Stars Take Over Boston!

Some may say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.
We, at Indresano Studios, beg to differ!

Earlier this year, Indresano Studios selected a cat and dog duo to test out some delicious new food on the market!

Meet Kingsley and Big Papi!

Indresano Studios met this amazing team earlier this year during a pet casting call we hosted in Boston, Ma.

We were on the hunt for the perfect pair and boy did we find it!

Meet Kingsley

Even though Kingsley was only 2 years old during our commercial photoshoot, he was a star! Kingsley loved the camera. His excellent training was essential during our shoot. He knew exactly where to go and we, at Indresano Studios, had no problems directing him.

Now that’s a good boy!

Meet Big Papi

Big Papi was a treat to have on set! He was very comfortable with the camera flash, and you could tell this wasn’t his first rodeo. Big Papi was definitely treat motivated and enjoyed all the attention coming his way.

Looking good, feline good!

Kingsley and Big Papi were a joy to have on set. Our team at Indresano Studios loved directing them throughout our photography and video shoots. We couldn’t have picked a more paw-some duo!

Indresano Studios assists our clients in every aspect of production. From photography, video, CGI, and animation, to pet casting calls, and so much more!

Chara played 24 seasons in the National Hockey League and 14 with the Boston Bruins.

Zdeno Chara made a formal announcement on his Instagram account September 20th.

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.

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!

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.

We continued running throughout the year with more beautiful running sneakers like the Puma Faster+ collection.

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.

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. We created multiple videos for this campaign featuring energy saving light bulbs, shower heads, and thermostats. Check out the shower head video below. Everything in this video, including the water simulation, was done using CGI.

CGI VIDEO: NATIONAL GRID ENERGY SAVING SHOWER HEADS

Our studio’s most recent CGI project had us making it rain 😉 Our talented in house CGI artists handled everything for this project from modeling and texturing to rigging, lighting, animating, and rendering the final videos.

Our full service production studio will come in handy during a drought because our CGI artists can not only create amazing 3D products, but we can also simulate water. Below is a still image of the 3D water simulation our studio created for the final 3D video highlighting National Grid’s energy saving shower heads. 

Our CGI artists also modeled and textured the shower heads to perfectly and accurately capture the impressive details of the product. 

The final video showcasing National Grid’s energy saving shower heads can also be viewed below. Make sure to take note of the impressive water simulation throughout the video.

CGI VIDEO: NATIONAL GRID ENERGY SAVING THERMOSTATS

We are ecstatic to share one of our recent CGI projects that we created for National Grid’s ad campaign. Our talented in house CGI artists handled everything for this project from modeling and texturing to rigging, lighting, animating, and rendering the final videos.

Our production team created 3D versions of four of National Grid’s Smart Thermostats. You can see a still of the Sensi thermostat below. The Smart thermostats are set to adjust throughout the day which our 3D video shows in an artful way.

We also used CGI technology to create fun designs of the Honeywell Smart thermostat. Our CGI artists used the real life Honeywell Smart thermostat to create the 3D version.

You can see the final thermostat CGI video below and get a sense of how these smart thermostats work in action!
