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!

BOSTON’S BEST ICE CREAM PHOTOGRAPHER

The only thing we love more than eating ice cream is shooting ice cream photography at our Boston commercial photography and video production studio. We don’t always love to share our ice cream, but we are more than happy to share our ice cream images 🙂

It was admittedly difficult not to eat every last scrumptious bite of this hot fudge brownie sundae, but somehow our ice cream photographer managed to hold back in time to get the shot :p

Our commercial photography studio specializes in creating editorial ice cream images. We love to make the creative fun ice cream flavors pop!

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

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 🙂

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 😉

IT’S NEVER TOO COLD FOR ICE CREAM (Part II)

With the winter refusing to give up, we’re trying to move on and warm up to something more exciting than the snow. And what’s better than some melty ICE CREAM! Let that insatiable appetite for luscious flavors and creamy textures stimulate your imagination. You will forget the cold in no time when the sensations explode, popping like fireworks from your taste buds. Your brain will instantly fall in love, as all you can think about is “ICE CREAM!” You have just been ice-creamatized!

We created these animated GIFs to illustrate that exact point – the love for ice cream never ends.

IT’S NEVER TOO COLD FOR ICE CREAM

As a Boston Food Photographer studio, it’s no surprise we like ICE CREAM around here! Just take a look through our website indresano.com and you will notice we are obsessed with ice cream! Some people love cat videos, we LOVE ice cream. We photograph ice cream, we video ice cream. If the sun were a ginormous scoop of tiramisu gelato we would be a sunflower basking in its delicious ice creamy rays. And we would take the ice cream on exciting adventures too. Like this recent project where we made cool melty looks from a few of our favorite flavors.
