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!

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.

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!
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!

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.
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.

If I only had one word to describe my summer internship at Indresano Studios it would be busy. From day one I already felt like a member of the Indresano team.
We kept very busy this summer with multiple photo and video shoots. On set I got to learn about all the areas of video production and commercial photography.
One of my favorite things I got to do was help out an in-house casting session for a healthcare photo shoot. Over the course of several days, actors and models from all over New England came into the studio to audition for an in-house casting.
Since I was helping out with casting, I decided to audition for a role myself; and I even got cast! That was really exciting for me since it gave me experience being in front of the camera too.
Indresano Studios was a fantastic hands on experience that exposed me to so many aspects of the video production and commercial photography industry in Boston.
The Indresano Studios team has partnered up with Medicine Wheel Productions to host Medicine Wheel’s “Hand in Hand” event, which aims to bridge the culture gap between some of Boston’s at-risk youth and the Boston Police Department. It is a full day of bonding activities, eventually culminating in a photoshoot at Indresano Studios!
In addition to hosting the photo shoot, the Indresano team is producing a short video for Medicine Wheel’s promotional purposes.
Hand In Hand brings together Boston Police officers and young adults, most of whom have had negative experiences with police in the past, to try to understand and accept their differences by embracing their similarities; namely their humanity, and common experience.
Before the workshop began, our team interviewed a few of the young adults, as well as Medicine Wheel Director Michael Dowling and Director of Public Art and Advocacy Richard Dinsmore to learn a little more about what this program is and how it has helped the two communities become closer together.
Each young adult is paired with an officer, then the workshop begins with a meditation period. Following this, each participant writes an “I Am” poem about identity.
Partners then create a mold of their clasped hands, which is later turned into a bronzed cast. These hand-in-hand statues are then displayed at Medicine Wheel, and at any events that Medicine Wheel hosts.
After a short dinner, participants then head to Indresano Studios to get their portraits taken.
Thank you to Boston PD, and Medicine Wheel and the young adults of Medicine Wheel for letting us be a part of this important day! We’re excited to help spread the word about this amazing program.

In search of brick walls and iron bars, we at Indresano packed up a full studio’s worth of video equipment and brought it all to a stunning location in the heart of Boston.
Our heavy-hitting Sony F5 allowed us to capture this Lifestyle/Product video shoot in stunning 4K RAW. We used a very special ARRI lens to capture macro details in our client’s apparel at a phenomenal focusing distance of 3 inches!
After an extensive casting call, our client was thrilled with the performances that Kyrel (Maggie Inc.), Christian (Model Club), and Alicia (Dynasty) brought to the shoot.
The three of them had contagious energy that lasted through the entire day — not an easy feat for an all-day shoot!
Of course, our on-set producer was carefully documenting the day for posterity. Check out our Instagram for more sneak peeks from this shoot as well as others!
Our media pipeline allowed our client to preview and rate clips as the shoot progressed. This way, our editors were set to get down to business as soon as the media was ingested back at Indresano Studios.
That’s a wrap! A great video is comprised of awesome creative, great talent, a fantastic location, and a fabulous team. To see more of our video work, check out our website at www.indresano.com/video-production. To see more of our work, check out our main website at www.indresano.com.
