CGI/3D Donut

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.

CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC CAUSES EMPTY BOSTON STREETS

Our team at Indresano Studios captured the empty Boston streets in quarantine and the Stay at Home Advisory during the COVID19 global pandemic. We created an Empty Streets video to document life in Boston during this unprecedented time and made sure to take the still images below as well.

The normally bustling Congress Street in Boston remains completely empty during quarantine in 2020.

Boston’s West End, a normally traffic heavy area, is completely isolated during the middle of a weekday in Boston.

In pre-COVID times, Boston’s iconic Zakim Bridge has a steady stream of cars. The Stay at Home Advisory in Boston in March and April of 2020 shows the Zakim Bridge empty.

Fort Point in Boston looks almost abandoned during quarantine.

Charles Street by the Boston Common looks eerily empty on this April day during the Pandemic.

Government Center is normally full of life and city dwellers enjoying the area, but everyone stayed inside during the Pandemic to flatten the curve and prevent the spread of COVID19.

The Government Center T Stop by City Hall is quiet and empty.

Castle Island in South Boston is normally full of runners, bicyclists, walkers, friends and families, but during COVID times, the South Boston hot spot is completely empty.

The Seaport area in Boston is completely empty during quarantine time.

Post Office Square in Boston’s financial district is completely void of people during quarantine.

Boston’s famous Newbury Street has never looked more deserted than it did during quarantine.

You can watch the final video showing the empty streets of Boston during the Pandemic below:
