Some may say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. We, at Indresano Studios, beg to differ!
Earlier this year, Indresano Studios selected a cat and dog duo to test out some delicious new food on the market!
Meet Kingsley and Big Papi!
Indresano Studios met this amazing team earlier this year during a pet casting call we hosted in Boston, Ma.
We were on the hunt for the perfect pair and boy did we find it!
Even though Kingsley was only 2 years old during our commercial photoshoot, he was a star! Kingsley loved the camera. His excellent training was essential during our shoot. He knew exactly where to go and we, at Indresano Studios, had no problems directing him.
Now that’s a good boy!
Meet Big Papi
Big Papi was a treat to have on set! He was very comfortable with the camera flash, and you could tell this wasn’t his first rodeo. Big Papi was definitely treat motivated and enjoyed all the attention coming his way.
Looking good, feline good!
Kingsley and Big Papi were a joy to have on set. Our team at Indresano Studios loved directing them throughout our photography and video shoots. We couldn’t have picked a more paw-some duo!
Indresano Studios assists our clients in every aspect of production. From photography, video, CGI, and animation, to pet casting calls, and so much more!

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.

We at Indresano Studios are huge fans of the Boston Bruins and are elated every time we get the opportunity to work with them.
Thank you, Boston Bruins, and thank you, Zdeno Chara, for 14 years as a Bruin!
Every year, the Greater Boston area produces the Hatch Awards which shine a light on the “best branding created anywhere” and celebrates creative excellence within the field. The 61st annual Hatch Awards took place last month and we at Indresano Studios were thrilled to receive multiple awards from the establishment.
We are proud to share we won six awards at this year’s Hatch Awards. Our video profiling Noelle Lambert, a Paralympian of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and a Massachusetts native, took home the bronze bowl for the Equity category. Our Nike Mercurial Video won a bronze in the Brands Amplified category.
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 is fun and energetic! He was very excited to be visiting the studio and getting his beauty shots in.
Elle was nervous for her first time in the studio. However, a couple of treats would make anyone feel better!
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 had no problem following instructions during our shoot. He went above and beyond and deserves a round of a-paws.
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 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’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 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!
Stay tuned to find out who was selected by following us on our social channels.
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.
Our in-house animation team for our series Natalia’s World has been hard at work this month! From writing scripts, to creating storyboards, to recording voiceovers at our studio — we’ve put our heart and soul into making this fun and educational animated series for children.
Our cartoon series follows spunky 9-year-old Natalia, who navigates life, school, friends and family! She has the help of her magical moral compass to guide her through hard decisions, as she tries to do the right thing. Our series is based on our director and executive producer’s children, Natalia and Michael, in real life!
We had the most fun recording voiceovers in the studio! Natalia (9 yrs) and Michael (5 yrs) were true professionals, adding flare, personality and excitement to their delivery of lines! Not to mention, they’re adorable!
We released our most recent episode “How to Stand up to a Bully,” where Natalia must figure out how to deal with a bully at school. It was exciting seeing all of our revisions, edits, and animations come together for the final result.
A huge thank you to Ultimate Self Defense in South Boston, for participating in the video and encouraging morals of strength and courage amongst young people! We were excited to have the owner, Andrea ‘Sensei,’ record voiceover for the role of the Judo Instructor in this episode!

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!

As a team of sneaker heads, we were excited to work with some of this year’s most stylish shoes. These top of the line running sneakers were super fun to photograph. We worked hard to bring out the beautiful details of each shoe.
Our Boston based creative production team also shot for Puma’s Nitro collection. We always work with the top-of-the-line stylists to prep the shoes for all of our shoe photo and shoe video shoots.
Our full service creative production team also shot multiple product videos and product photos in 2021. Our dedicated team of camera operators, our talented Director and Photographer, and our in-house Producers worked together to create content for a client’s new product line. We shot images of their office supplies collection in an environment and on seamless to give the client multiple uses.
Of course it wouldn’t be a year at Indresano Studios without appetizing food photo shoots and food video shoots. We especially built up our ice cream photography portfolio in 2021. Check out a few highlights below!
We also had many successful food video shoots and food photo shoots. It was hard to not eat all the yummy dishes, but somehow we resisted until after we got the shot. Camera always eats first!
This year was filled with many fulfilling video projects like the video we created for South Boston Catholic Academy’s Set Sail fundraising campaign. Check out the full video below.
Our full service production studio used our CGI skills to put an artistic spin on National Grid’s beautiful energy saving products. We created multiple videos for this campaign featuring energy saving light bulbs, shower heads, and thermostats. Check out the shower head video below. Everything in this video, including the water simulation, was done using CGI.
