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.

How to Stand Up to a Bully: Natalia’s World

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!

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!

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.

FURNITURE PHOTO SHOOT

Our studio specializes in product photography and we got to use our product photo skills in our latest office furniture photo shoot. Check out some of the images below!

Our talented set builders created and painted an office space in our studio space to achieve the clean and modern final result for this furniture photo shoot.

Our full service production team worked hard to style the props and furniture in the strongest possible way so that the beauty of the office furniture could really shine.

BEST BOSTON VIDEO PRODUCTION AND COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY OF 2020

2020 was a year unlike any other in many ways, but especially at our Boston based video production and commercial photography studio. Take a look at just a few highlights from our studio’s video and photography projects in 2020!

We loved having Boston Dynamic’s Spot in our studio for a product reveal photo shoot. New studio pet?!

Our video production crew traveled to a National Grid substation to film a customer storytelling video of Boston Dynamic’s incredible robot Spot in action. Check out the video below!

We used our expertise in product videos to create strong, chic, and informative product videos for Samsonite’s top of the line products.

The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic was undoubtably unexpected, but our team at Indresano Studios looks at every situation through a creative lens. Our dedicated Director and video crew spent multiple days in masks and PPE shooting the empty streets of Boston during the March and April 2020 city wide shutdown. As a full service Boston production studio, we felt inspired to document life in the city during the pandemic. We created the below Empty Streets video using our own footage and audio from Mayor Walsh.

Our Empty Streets video received tons of praise and was shared by Mayor Walsh on his social media accounts including instagram, facebook, and twitter.

Our production team kept busy throughout quarantine, adapted to the unprecedented times, and enforced strict social distancing and safety policies throughout the studio. Our team is endlessly thankful to all the health care workers who made it possible for us to continue working. We were able to work hard on a lot of remote photo and remote video shoots as well as many CGI projects like the Bose CGI video below.

Our in house CGI artists and creative team also created the below video for the Nike Mercurial Superfly 7.

Our team traveled to multiple locations in 2020 for different on location video shoots and on location photo shoots. One of our location shoots took place at a Boston hospital. This healthcare video shoot was a big success.

Our talented team always has an appetite for food photo shoots, especially editorial food photo shoots. Check out some of our favorite food photos from this year.

We kept our creative juices flowing and our taste buds satiated throughout the year with multiple ice cream photo shoots and ice cream video shoots. Check out a few of our favorite editorial ice cream shots below.

On top of all the major world events happening in 2020, it was also a U.S election year. Our creative team put our video skills to use to create a video encouraging people to get out and VOTE in the presidential election. We are happy we have the video tools, editing knowledge, and creative vision to help promote the vote.

Our video team also used our skills to create a powerful fundraising video for a virtual fundraiser for the Women for Walsh campaign.

2020 was a crazy and unprecedented year, but our production team at Indresano Studios has proven we can take on any challenge with creativity, composure and style. We cannot wait to see what 2021 has in store for us!

DOG PHOTO SHOOT

In June, Indresano Studios cast a cute canine to be the dog model of a photo shoot for a new cleaning product on the market. Aura, the dog model, took to the staff and space at Indresano Studios right away, and it turns out, she was even more at home on set.

Aura took direction on set well, and followed instructions from her owner like a pro.

It was obvious she relished her new job as a dog model and loved the attention.

This golden gal knows where the toys are. If only she knew where the cleaning products were…

How could you say no to this face?

The day was a success, and Aura’s smile will soon be associated with the brand she’s promoting.

Aura was quite the celebrity even before the photo shoot. You can follow more of Aura’s activities on Instagram at the handle @Aura.the.pup
