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.

About South Boston Community Health Center

We were thrilled to help South Boston Community Health Center (SBCHC) and its team of Youth Ambassadors spread the word about getting vaccinated. We were impressed by the teens’ initiative and dedication to what they believe in. We were happy to create this video at the studio so the teens could promote the vaccine to their peers.

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.

BOSTON NONPROFIT SPOKE VIDEO

Indresano Studios loved working with the people of SPOKE. Located in the Greater Boston area, “MW Productions/SPOKE activates the transformative power of art to heal divisions, strengthen community, and drive social progress.” SPOKE uses various forms of art as a way for young people to better understand themselves as well as increase their understanding of the world around them.

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