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.

Holy Family Church, Duxbury, MA

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. We were impressed by the teens’ initiative and dedication to what they believe in. We were happy to create this video at the studio so the teens could promote the vaccine to their peers.

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.

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.

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.

MEDICINE WHEEL – HAND IN HAND 2019 WITH BOSTON POLICE COMMISSIONER WILLIAM GROSS

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.

Medicine Wheel Hand in Hand – Hand Casting

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.

Medicine Wheel Hand in Hand – “I Am” Poems

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.
