James White of the New England Patriots Retires after 8 Seasons

This month we celebrate running back James White of the New England Patriots. James, a 3X super bowl winner, retired this month following a long career of football, including 8 seasons in the NFL. 

Indresano Studios had the pleasure of photographing James White several times.

James was a multi-year captain and a fourth-round pick of the 2014 NFL draft.

He was instrumental during the greatest super bowl come back of all time, scoring 20 points against the Atlanta Falcons for the win!

James spent his entire career alongside the New England Patriots.

Indresano Studios had a blast working on set with James. We went behind the scenes with James to create a mesmerizing video highlighting his time with the Patriots.

Watch the final video here:

We want to thank James for all he has accomplished during his time with the New England Patriots.

He will be greatly missed!

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!

SPOKE encourages youth to use art as a means of expression and to help strengthen ties within their community.

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.

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!

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 here (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!

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 🙂
