TAKING THE NEXT STEP WITH NxSTAGE

Our recent project with NxStage for a home dialysis machine was a rewarding experience! We had a great opportunity to be part of a creative process that will benefit those that require kidney care. On casting day, over 60 people came in to audition for a few different roles. We hit the ground running on the shoot day by creating a set that really told the story and communicated the product message. The images represent the freedom of using home dialysis. Check out the tear sheets from the shoot below!

MEDICINE WHEEL PRODUCTIONS – HAND IN HAND

Hand in Hand is an ambitious project of building rapport and extending the circle of friendship to include two often misunderstood groups of people – police officers and young adults. This project is the brainchild of Quincy¬†native and visionary artist Michael Dowling. For over 22 years, he¬†has spearheaded the well respected non-profit organization called Medicine Wheel Productions as its founder and artistic director. Mr. Dowling’s commitment to the positive transformation of troubled youths through art and community building has won him extensive recognition.

Michael Indresano, a board member of Medicine Wheel, did not hesitate to create a powerful video documentary that celebrates commonality and inclusion, further addressing hot-button social/racial issues that dominate our national conversation today.

Filming the the video took place for a few months and required countless hours of post production. Michael and his team were instrumental in organizing all the interviews, documenting the workshops through video, photographing the portraits, editing the footage together, and acted as technical consultant to all matters relating to video and photo. The video creation process started with a dedicated team of professionals bringing together their diverse skill set and industry know-how into conceptualizing a story. Many hours of brainstorming took place at our 33 A Street studio in South Boston. Michael Indresano led the team as director overseeing the entire creative process. With over 22 years of award-winning photography expertise, he is no stranger to the world of visual story telling. A true seasoned professional and master of detail, Michael directed the camera crew and lighting technicians with precise angles and adjustments; infusing every shot with a consistent degree of thought, emotion, and impact, further driving the message with vigor and determined vision.

The final video release was launched at the Medicine Wheel Turning The Wheel Annual Fundraiser at the Nixon Peabody law firm to exuberant applause. Attendees of the event included Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans, Boston City Councilor at large Ayanna Pressley, Community Affairs Liaison for the Boston Redevelopment Authority Mark McGonagle (MW Chair of the Board of Directors), Boston Police Deputy Superintendent Nora L. Baston, Vice President at Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Karen Young, Community Involvement Director for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Janelle Woods-McNish, Executive Director of South Asian Arts Council Amit Dixit, State Auditor Suzanne M. Bump, along with many more prominent high profile public officials and loyal Medicine Wheel supporters voicing their support for this project.

GOVERNOR CHARLIE BAKER LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR KARYN POLITO VISIT THE INDRESANO STUDIO

Things were quite exciting at the studio last week when the Governor¬†Charlie Baker stopped by! Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito also made an appearance so Michael could photograph the¬†two for the¬†Spring cover¬†of Scene Magazine. The Indresano team was honored to have both high-profile public officials take some time out of their busy schedules to visit the studio. State Troopers came to the studio the day prior to conduct¬†a site survey and they also assessed the area¬†twice during the day of the shoot to ensure everything was safe and ready for the Governor’s arrival! Check out some pictures from the shoot below as well as an exclusive behind the scenes video!

BIRD STRIKE!

You wouldn’t believe it if we told you, so we’ll¬†show you instead. Before last months crazy blizzard, strong¬†winds were blowing when¬†we heard a tremendous crashing noise. We rushed outside and found a Cooper’s Hawk that had smashed into our window! In an attempt to fly south for the winter and escape the brutal cold & snow, the little guy made an unplanned detour¬†at the studio!

Definitely not ready for a close up after that crash – OUCH.

Amazingly the hawk was still alive, but pretty dazed from the impact.

We immediately called animal rescue at MSPCA and they sent a field technician to recover the injured bird.
At the end of the day, we were all relieved and happy that the hawk survived and is in good hands.

PAVING A COMMON PATH

It’s amazing what can be accomplished when we all work together! Naturally, we felt so proud and inspired after completing this project for Medicine Wheel Productions. Just last year the Edward Ingersoll Browne Fund awarded Medicine Wheel with a grant to install an accessible, paved path connecting the Boston National Historical Park. We couldn’t be happier to help Medicine Wheel promote their goal of having 600 engraved bricks donated to¬†line the path.¬†We tried our best to capture the essence of the project and help spread awareness to have¬†bricks donated. Check out our finished video below and see what a great time we had!

Here is the final video we produced!
