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:

ICE CREAM PHOTOGRAPHY

We put a fun editorial spin on our latest ice cream photography shoot. Take a look at some of the images below!

The number one rule of editorial ice cream photography is “the more crumbs, the better the sundae”. It’s that simple ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ice cream photography and ice cream video production are only two of Indresano Studios specialities.

Our ice cream stylist did not hold back on the caramel topping for this ice cream sundae image.

BEST BOSTON VIDEO PRODUCTION AND BOSTON COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY OF 2019

The 2020’s are here and we’re feeling nostalgic looking back on our fantastic Boston video production and Boston commercial photography projects in 2019. Take a look at our video and photo year in review below!

Cheers to the start of 2019 with an on location video shoot in Boston! We did everything for this video shoot from pre-production including in house casting, location scouting, creating the video storyboard, to shooting the video footage, and handling all aspects of post production like sourcing and managing the Voice Over artist and editing the final video.

If you’ve been to Indresano Studios, you know we love to create, produce, direct and edit high end and high quality videos in our Boston based studio. In the winter of 2019 we did just that with the below Chanel Ad video. Don’t enter into 2020 without giving it a watch!

Netflix’s Stranger Things came to Indresano Studios for ice cream photography in February 2019 and the Demogorgon sundae was unleashed! Check out one of our final Stranger Things video creations below (at your own risk).

Our Boston video production journey took us all over the city in March with the below documentary we created for the Pine Street Inn’s 50th anniversary in 2019. We highly recommend giving it a watch. It was without a doubt the most rewarding and eye-opening video production project we created this year.

We added colorful, playful and vibrant additions to our corporate persona photography and corporate persona video portfolios at Indresano Studios this year with a big photo and video campaign for a huge networking event. We shot both video and photo assets in April 2019 for the event in the Fall. Check out some of the final retouched images below!

We continued creating powerful videos in May 2019 for important non-profit organizations like Medicine Wheel. Our very own Michael Indresano was even named “Medicine Wheel Man of the Year” in 2019 for all his generous work with the program. You can see our video about Medicine Wheel’s Hand in Hand program below.

We were honored to receive 2 awards from the 13th annual Black and White Spider Photography Awards this year for both our Bowflex M7 photo and video shoot as well as our Range Rover photo and video shoot.

We had a successful lifestyle photography shoot in the studio in June 2019 for a rebranding of a popular healthcare company. We handled all aspects of this healthcare photo shoot from in house casting for over 25 models, sourcing wardrobe, organizing the shoot schedule to shooting and retouching the final images.

If you’ve ever been to our Boston based studio, you would know we are major dog lovers. Needless to say we were very excited when we had a product photo shoot with a dog model in the studio in the summer. 2019 is going to be hard to beat.

We created an emotional video interview for a corporate client in 2019. We shot the video on location and told the story of a breast cancer survivor. We were fortunate enough to interview the survivor herself, as well as her friends and family. The final video was played at an international company event in September.

We of course had many delicious food photo shoots and ice cream photo shoots in the studio with great clients. We love our clients ๐Ÿ™‚

PHOTOGRAPHY FOR STRANGER THINGS AT INDRESANO STUDIOS

Stranger Things have never happened at Indresano Studios with our ice cream photography before, but they sure tasted out of this world.

We hopped on board the U.S.S. Butterscotch and took an adventure into the land of Netflix’s Stranger Things and ice cream for our recent ice cream photo shoot.

Our Boston based studio was as cold as ice for this ice cream photo shoot, but that did not stop us from slurping a delicious Baskin Robbins Elevenade Freeze. Dangerously delicious.

Things got turned upside down with this Stranger Things themed sundae, but no one was calling Hopper to complain.


Thankfully, but unsurprisingly, Stranger Things star Eleven came to save the day and brought our Boston studio her Eleven’s Heaven ice cream treat

Of course we all had to take some ice cream home from our photo shoot to enjoy while binging Stranger Things season 3 ๐Ÿ™‚

To see more of our fantastical adventures in ice cream photography, check out our ice cream website at www.icecreamphotographer.com. Make sure you grab some Baskin Robbins ice cream when you binge Stranger Things 3 on Netflix, but remember, enjoy only if you dare ๐Ÿ˜‰

MY VIDEO PRODUCTION AND COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY INTERNSHIP

If I only had one word to describe my summer internship at Indresano Studios it would be busy. From day one I already felt like a member of the Indresano team.

We kept very busy this summer with multiple photo and video shoots. On set I got to learn about all the areas of video production and commercial photography.

One of my favorite things I got to do was help out an in-house casting session for a healthcare photo shoot. Over the course of several days, actors and models from all over New England came into the studio to audition for an in-house casting.

Since I was helping out with casting, I decided to audition for a role myself; and I even got cast! That was really exciting for me since it gave me experience being in front of the camera too.

Indresano Studios was a fantastic hands on experience that exposed me to so many aspects of the video production and commercial photography industry in Boston.

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 โ€œI Amโ€ 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.

PINE STREET INN VIDEO

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Pine Street Inn, one of Boston’s largest providers of shelter and support for the city’s homeless population. In recognition of this milestone, and to give back to the community, we here at Indresano Studios have embarked on a documentary project with the Pine Street Inn in an effort to highlight the important work the Pine Street Inn provides to the city of Boston. The goals of this project are to give voice to Boston’s homeless community and to spread awareness of the resources still needed to support and re-house the city’s homeless population.

A moving quote from a Pine Street Inn Guest

The team’s first objective was to collect stories. The most effective way to humanize the issue of homelessness is to spread personal stories, experiences, and words.

The Indresano Studios team strategizes how to best capture these personal stories

Our team had the opportunity to interview three homeless men, John, Ray, and Jamil, on the first day of the shoot. In the interviews, our team learned details about each man’s past that led them to homelessness, their struggles to find housing and their hopes and goals for the future.

A behind the scenes glimpse at the video shot
Our media pipeline allows us to monitor and rate clips as they are happening
The Indresano Team got the chance to interview a former Pine Street Inn guest in his new home

The team’s 4th interview of the day was with Nelson, the director of the Pine Street Inn’s Outreach Program. The Pine Street Inn has multiple vans traveling Boston 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to help bring the Pine Street Inn’s support to people in need, rather than leaving them on their own to secure transportation to the shelter.

Nelson, Director of Pine Street Inn’s Outreach Program

Our team also had the distinct privilege of accompanying the outreach team on a particularly snowy night. Members of the outreach team supplied blankets, hot food, and other forms of support to members of Boston’s homeless community.

As this project progresses, we hope to bring further updates to our readers. For now, it’s back to work on the Pine Street Inn’s 50th anniversary video!
