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.

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.

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.
