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.

BOSTON POLITICS FUNDRAISER VIDEO

Our Boston based video production team created an emotionally strong video for Boston’s very own Mayor Walsh and his team for the recent 2020 Women for Walsh fundraiser. Our superstar production team traveled to multiple locations to interview 7 amazing women who have worked with Mayor Walsh in some capacity over the years.

As a Boston based video production team, we were super excited to travel to Recreo Coffee in West Roxbury for another on location interview. We filmed this interview with Miriam Morales, an impressive female business owner in Boston.

Our production team made the creative decision to shoot the interview in Recreo’s award winning garden, adding a warm and inviting aesthetic to Miriam’s interview.

Our next on location interview was with Cherie Jimenez, the founder of the Eva Center. Cherie’s important work focuses on supporting survivors of sexual exploitation.

We wrapped up Day 1 of this location interview shoot in Hyde Park, speaking with Mickey Cockrell, co-founder of Catie’s closet, another important female led non-profit organization in Boston.

Catie’s Closet, a non-profit organization that provides an in school resource of clothing and toiletries for kids living below the poverty line, has been described as “the mall”. We can totally see why.

Faith Jackson, a longtime supporter of Mayor Walsh and an active member of Boston’s senior community, shared her positive interactions with the Mayor in her interview in her beautiful home.

On day 2 of shooting, our crew traveled to Le Foyer Bakery in Mattapan to interview the owner of the bakery, Edna Etienne. Edna spoke about what it is like to be a woman in business and how Mayor Walsh has worked to help women in business to make the experience a little easier.

Mayor Walsh is very active in the Boys and Girls Club Dorchester, an important organization for kids and families everywhere.

Our team sat down with an impressive young female student named Fatoumata to hear more about her experience with Mayor Walsh, Boston politics, and her experience at the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester. Fatoumata confirmed that Mayor Walsh is “a really cool guy”.

Fatoumata also spoke about how she was inspired at the 2019 New England Women Leadership Awards when she saw women of color working with Mayor Walsh to run the city.

The final Women for Walsh video also features an interview with another successful and impressive young female named Dominique. Dominique is a graduate of the Building Pathways, a pre apprenticeship program in the construction industry.

Dominique described the benefits she’s received from completing the Building Pathway’s program, including financial stability and independence.

Listening to all these incredible and inspiring stories, the below quote from Mayor Walsh sums it up perfectly.

You can view the final Women for Walsh video below.

Our video production team was truly humbled by the incredible response the video received during the virtual fundraising event. Check out some of the comments below.
