A TOTALLY FUN DAY: TOTAL WIRELESS PHOTO AND VIDEO SHOOT

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!

VIDEO INTERVIEWS IN SAN DIEGO

The cold and snow were too slow to leave Boston, and Indresano team was impatient for warmer weather! So they packed up their gear and went down to sunny San Diego for a video shoot.

Once the crew scouted out the best location, they got right down to business getting all the gear set and ready!

Our Production Coordinator Shannon filled in as the interviewee in order to adjust lighting and sound just right for the videos. But that didn’t stop her from working!

Notice anything about the window frames? Here’s a hint- it involved a lot of taping! We covered the black frames in white in order to create the perfect background for the shot

With everything all ready to go, our professional interviewer got everything underway.

It takes a great crew to film a strong interview!

After two days of prep and filming, our team had just enough time left in San Diego to visit the seals in La Jolla.

¬†Jayna and Shannon even managed to snag a ‘seal’fie with one of them!

 

WARDROBES & WINDEX: MY FIRST WEEK AS AN INTERN

“Cream or sugar?” It’s the clich√©d but fail-proof question lurking in the back of my mind on Day 1¬†of any internship. Somehow my social awkwardness didn’t scare away the interviewers, and the¬†much-anticipated¬†first day leaves my mind spinning.¬†Will it be super corporate? Will the rest of the team like me? Will I learn about the industry or practice my barista skills? “Point me to the Keurig,” I think, just to be on the safe side.

I am so grateful to say those anxieties evaporated the second I entered Michael Indresano Photography. The studio is stunning. It’s modern and sophisticated yet fun and energetic.¬†Early 2000s R&B blasts on the radio all day. Oh, did I mention there’s a dog? Take a look at the majestic Sofia who keeps us company:

Just when I thought things couldn’t get better, Michael let us know we would be having a shoot later in the week for a company specializing in beauty products.¬†Check out some behind the scenes moments as I took in all this incredible first week had to offer:

The Set

Rule #1: Windex is your friend. We got right to work preparing for the shoot by making sure the studio was spotless and the equipment was ready to go. Shoutout to Abby for teaching me how to test the camera and set up the lights.

The Wardrobe

Hangers galore! I was stunned to see how many clothing options arrived at the studio for the shoot.

The Crew

A shoot is nothing without a dedicated crew. Here we have our insanely talented hair stylist Paula, wardrobe specialist Coleen, and makeup artist Jennifer. It was so great working with this detail-oriented team!

The Models

Not only were they beautiful, but the models are some of the most genuinely friendly people I’ve met.¬†Here are some shots of Lauren, Anna, and Anais as the shoot got underway.

The Favorite

Last but not least, here’s one of my favorite behind-the-scenes shots from the day. Check out the beautiful flares that the lighting cast on our bold model Anais.

As you can see, I’d say it was a pretty amazing first week all in all. Thank you so much to Michael for the incredible internship opportunity. I can’t wait to see what else upcoming weeks have in store!

ICE CREAM POLAR PIZZA SHOOT

Who wouldn’t want to grab a Baskin-Robbins Polar Pizza slice after watching this!? Enjoy!

Check out the final video above!

Some of the behind the scene shots of our Baskin Robbins Polar Pizza. Took Michael and the team 3 days to shoot the sequences needed to make the cut. Each flavor was shot separately and edited in post to give that final polished look. Momentum, music, rhythm, appetite appeal, and the flow of the video are qualities that we focused on highlighting. In total there are 49 actual shots to create this 30 second video, however we took 2-3 takes per shot.

img_5226

Something that looks simple in a video may be quite complex to shoot. Applying math is an indispensable way of accomplishing such a task. Image above shows how we divided up each slice and marked them numerically for an action sequence. In the final video clip, you can see the results of this kind of math in action.

img_5230

At the end of the day, it is about getting the shot and getting it right. Executing creative ideas take a lot of “thinking outside the box”. This is just a casual example of the things we use to get the shots we want.

Very cool slow motion behind the scenes video of Jayna dropping the candy pieces on top of the Polar Pizza (below)! See the clip in the final Polar Pizza video at 0.07 seconds in (above).

A LOOK BEHIND “THE SCENE”: PHOTOSHOOT WITH NEW ENGLAND PATRIOT, DANNY AMENDOLA

Before the Patriots season kicked off and took over everyone’s Sundays, the Indresano team had the opportunity to work on a two-day, multi-location shoot with fan-favorite Danny Amendola. While the final images are now published in a series in Scene magazine, we wanted to give you a look behind the ‘Scene’:

First up is getting the camera and lighting just right.

TURNING UP THE HEAT ON A VIDEO SHOOT!

It wasn’t just the summer¬†heat keeping the studio hot! Giorgos¬†flew from New York to be our model at the studio for a big apparel company¬†video shoot. We had a lot of fun filming him¬†in various different pairs of pants for their spring line. Keep an eye out for the trendy jeans and chino pants coming to stores near you! Here’s a sneak peek and¬†behind-the-scenes look at the work that went into creating the video production and final images!

BEST OF 2015: OUR VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECTS IN REVIEW

2015 was quite a year for us here at the studio! From exciting photo and video projects to awards we were honored to win, we have a lot to be thankful for! Here are some of our favorite memories:

Early in the year, we were still working on finalizing and putting out two exciting video projects. The first was the Seapoint Estate video, where we highlighted a beautiful ocean side mansion.

Another project we finished up was a TV commercial to help promote the Pine Street Inn, a local homeless shelter in Boston. It was exciting to see our work air on Channel 5!

Even though the weather was poor, our spirits remained high!

We also finished up a video helping showcase the non-profit Medicine Wheel and their goal of installing a paved path connecting the Boston National Historical Park.

When Obama came to Boston to open the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States in honor of the late Ted Kennedy, we all enjoyed reminiscing on when Michael photographed Ted Kennedy in 1995.

In April, Michael was honored to be highlighted in Boston.com for his constant philanthropic work for the community and his help for local charities to increase their support and donations.

In May, Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito came to the studio to be photographed for the cover of Scene Magazine. We were all so excited they took the time from their busy schedule to get their portraits taken!

Over the summer, we got started on some exciting video projects, starting with a video and photoshoot featuring Boston Bruin’s goal keeper Tuukka Rask.

Next, we worked on some some dramatic close-up filming and photography showcasing the beauty of the new iRobot product.

We also helped to promote one of Medicine Wheel’s other endeavors, Hand in Hand. The program helps to promote communication and understanding between police officers¬†and young adults.

Using a dolly and a lot of patience, we worked tirelessly to capture the beauty of Circle Furniture.

By the fall, the award announcements began to come in, and we were honored with 4 Merit Award from Graphis Competitions for our food photography work with Baskin Robbins!

The fun continued when we filmed the Mayo Bowl hosted by New England Patriots Defensive Captain Jerod Mayo. It was a lot of work but we made some time for meeting some of the Patriots team, including Tom Brady, Danny Amendola, Chandler Jones and Julian Edelman!

FROM TOUCHDOWNS TO STRIKES: THE MAYO BOWL

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.

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

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!
