Boston Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara Retires

Zdeno Chara returned to TD Garden to announce his retirement from the NHL this month. Chara is planning on signing a one-day contract with the Boston Bruins on September 20th, officially retiring as a Bruin.

Indresano Studios had the pleasure of photographing Chara several times.

Chara scored 481 points in 1,023 games while playing for the Bruins.

Chara played 24 seasons in the National Hockey League and 14 with the Boston Bruins.

Zdeno Chara made a formal announcement on his Instagram account September 20th.

“I am honored to return to TD Garden today to sign a one-day contract with the Boston Bruins and officially finish my career with the team that has meant so much to me and my family”

Indresano Studios has been working with the Boston Bruins since 2013.
On the team’s 90th anniversary, we produced a video highlighting Zdeno and the rest of the Bruins.

BOSTON VIDEO & PHOTO PET CASTING

Do you ever look at your pet and wish they could help you pay rent?

Indresano Studios hosted a Pet Casting Call Day earlier this month to find the paw-fect pets for a commercial job. We had the pleasure of meeting several dogs and cats that were ready to put in the work and become stars!


Here are just a few of our four-legged friends:

Coconut

Coconut is fun and energetic! He was very excited to be visiting the studio and getting his beauty shots in.

Elle

Elle was nervous for her first time in the studio. However, a couple of treats would make anyone feel better!

Morrigan

Morrigan was our youngest dog in the studio! Her energy was infectious, and she got everyone in the studio excited for the day ahead.

Timber

Timber had no problem following instructions during our shoot. He went above and beyond and deserves a round of a-paws.

Arlo

Arlo came in camera ready on casting day. He was an expert when it came to posing in front of the camera. He made sure we got all his good angles!

Kona

Kona was so happy being in the studio and felt right at home! We can’t help but smile when we see his floppy ears and shining personality.

Scrappy

Scrappy’s name fits him perfectly! Though he may be small in stature, he makes up for it with an adorable face and powerful pose.

Luca

Luca loved having the spotlight! He thought the food was delicious…even though he did have a hard time keeping it in the bowl.


These pets brought their A-game to our casting day! Our in-house team worked tirelessly to make sure these pets had a fantastic time modeling on set. We were so excited to meet each one of them! 

This marks another successful casting call for Indresano Studios!

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.

NOELLE LAMBERT RESILIENCE VIDEO_BEHIND THE SCENES

The Resilience video our video production team created to help tell Noelle Lambert’s story took a lot of pre-production planning, camera operating skills, talented direction and hard work. Take a look at some of the behind the scenes action below to get a better idea of what goes into creating a compelling video.

Noelle Lambert, Team USA Paralympic Runner, prepared for the on location video shoot by getting into her training mindset.

One of our many talented camera operators also got into the spirit of working out and used an exercise ball to capture the best angles for this video shoot.

Paralympic athlete Noelle Lambert stands strong, tall and proud for the camera. Noelle is the epitome of strength, resilience and courage.

Our video production team used creative lighting to give the final resilience video a no nonsense gritty feeling.

Noelle impressed our whole video production crew with not only her mental strength, but her notable physical strength as well.

We also captured B-Roll footage of Noelle in her element on the track with her running prosthetic. Noelle started her own organization called the Born to Run Foundation, which provides young amputees with specialized prosthetics that enable them to live out their athletic dreams. She personally understands the importance of a good running prosthetic and gives back as much as she can.

We also made sure to schedule an on location interview with Noelle’s running coach to shed more light on Noelle’s training process.

Noelle inspires all of us to realize “you can do anything you put your mind to”. She keeps her focus on her goals and trains tirelessly to reach them. Noelle will be competing in the Tokyo 2021 Paralympic Games representing Team USA in track. The future looks bright for Noelle Lambert.

To see the full video and learn more about Noelle’s journey and story, check out our blog post here. You can also see more of our work in video production, commercial photography, CGI, animation and much more on our website www.indresano.com.

PARALYMPIC ATHLETE NOELLE LAMBERT RESILIENCE VIDEO TEASER

Our video production team had the privilege of creating, producing, directing, and editing a video to help USA Paralympic athlete Noelle Lambert tell her story of resilience. Noelle lost her leg in a moped accident at 19 years old. She immediately adapted to her new situation and tirelessly trained to become the Paralympic athlete she is today.

Our Boston based video production team traveled to multiple locations, interviewing Noelle, her family and coach to capture and convey her amazing story. Check out a teaser of the full length video below.

COMEDY VIDEO SHOOT IN BOSTON

Our studio had the pleasure of producing a comedy video shoot with two of Boston’s top comedians, Lenny Clarke and Tony V!

This video shoot was especially meaningful as it was for a great cause for Boston Medical Center & Greater Boston Food Bank’s Stop Hunger Now Campaign. We made sure to use the best equipment possible and top of the line audio equipment to capture the important message of the video.

Our Boston video production crew captured shots and audio from all angles on Castle Island in the Sullivan’s parking lot to make sure no clever line was missed. Lenny Clarke and Tony V stuck to the comedy script, but they also threw in a few “wicked” funny improvised lines. 

Our crew moved to our second video shoot location of the day after a quick lunch at Sullivan’s. We packed up the production van and set up in between L Street Tavern and Sal’s for the next location of the video shoot. Our full service production team made sure to get the proper permits to close the road down for this comedy video shoot. 

Boston comedian Lenny Clarke was cracking everyone up on set- including himself!

Boston stand up comedian Tony V did an excellent job on set. He delivered all of his lines perfectly and added in a few funny one liners as well!

Our team also got some great behind the scenes images with the comedy video’s two main stars! Here is our Executive Producer with both Lenny Clarke and Tony V.

Our video Director also got a quick bts shot with the two comedians.

Both of our in house studio producers also got shots with both Lenny and Tony on set.

This video comedy shoot was a huge success all thanks to our talented video production crew, hilarious comedy script writers, and top notch comedians.

BEST SHOE PHOTOGRAPHY IN BOSTON

We love to shoot products, but we especially love to shoot beautiful shoe photography at our Boston based commercial photography and video production studio. A good pair of sneakers deserves high end shoe photography.

At our most recent shoe photo shoot in our Boston photo studio, we honed in on the details of each shoe. Check out one of our detail shoe shots below.

 

We made sure to capture each shoe at every angle to show off the versatile qualities. 

 

Our full service production crew set up the perfect profile shot of the shoe. Special thanks to our talented shoe stylist for making the shoe look photo ready!

We also made sure to capture the intricate material of each shoe to highlight the impressive detail. 

Our full service photography crew had a lot of fun making the shoes fly on set!

Shoe photography is all about highlighting the beautiful shoes and showing each sneaker in the best light.
