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”
-Zdeno Chara

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.

Watch the video here:

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!

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 founder and director Michael Dowling takes us through the organization’s legacy with the help of the board of directors and those who make SPOKE possible.

Learn more about Michael and SPOKE’s mission by watching our video below.

Previously known as Medicine Wheel, SPOKE was created to transform the lives of Boston’s youth. Their new building on Old Colony will give the people of Boston a safe space to create and heal together through all forms of art including visual media, dance, and poetry performances. SPOKE encourages youth to use art as a means of expression and to help strengthen ties within their community.

Our in-house team worked hard to create a thought-provoking video that highlighted the non-profit. We were there every step of the way through creating storyboards, conducting interviews, shooting, editing, color correction and sound design.

Meet the people who help keep SPOKE running.

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 SHOE PHOTOGRAPHY

Our studio’s talented shoe photographer got to show off skills in one of our latest shoe photography shoots. Check out some of the final images below!

Puma teamed up with the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 to create the Faster+ collection. These spikes allow athletes to be faster, lighter, and more dynamic than ever. Our creative production team worked hard to highlight the impressive shoe technology in all the final shots, like the one below.

These innovative shoes have a lot of beautiful details including the captivating iridescent design on the bottom of the spikes. Our talented shoe photographer used years of lighting knowledge and expertise to show off the gorgeous design.

The bottom of the spikes is not the only impressive and thoughtful detail of the Faster+ collection. The fabric of the shoes also has a lot of eye-catching detail.

Our creative team used our Hasselblad H6D to get in even closer to highlight the spike’s beautiful design.

When all of the intricate details of the spike come together, it creates a powerful and impressive full picture as shown in the below profile shot.

Puma’s Faster+ collection is full of not only beautifully designed shoes, but technologically smart and well made spikes. Our full service production team is thrilled to have been able to capture this amazing new collection.

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!

We continued creating powerful videos in May 2019 for important non-profit organizations like Medicine Wheel. Our very own Michael Indresano was even named “Medicine Wheel Man of the Year” in 2019 for all his generous work with the program. You can see our video about Medicine Wheel’s Hand in Hand program below.

We were honored to receive 2 awards from the 13th annual Black and White Spider Photography Awards this year for both our Bowflex M7 photo and video shoot as well as our Range Rover photo and video shoot.

We had a successful lifestyle photography shoot in the studio in June 2019 for a rebranding of a popular healthcare company. We handled all aspects of this healthcare photo shoot from in house casting for over 25 models, sourcing wardrobe, organizing the shoot schedule to shooting and retouching the final images.

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 🙂

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 😉
