A BLAST WITH TUUKKA RASK

The average speed of a hockey puck flying across the ice in a NHL game is between 80-110 mph. What does it take to stop a projectile traveling at such a velocity? The answer is MORE speed. We found out just how that lighting reflex works when famed goalie Tuukka Rask from the Boston Bruins came to the studio for a video and photo shoot.

We had to get in close while filming the eyes that see what most people can’t.

You have to be prepared before approaching a goal guarded by this stare!

Nothing like a little smoke to add to the mood!

After the shoot, Tuukka got down low for some knee hockey with a few of his younger fans.

VIDEO PRODUCTION ON THE ROAD IN SAN DIEGO

Recently we went to San Diego for a video production project. It was a lot of early mornings and long days, but we live by the philosophy of work hard, play hard.

Our Production Coordinator sits with some of our equipment we had to bring for the shoot. No room for clothes when back up batteries are more important!

When we finally arrived in San Diego, we had a few moments to enjoy the warm weather and beautiful scenery before heading off to work!

Setting up all the cameras and lights took a while, but luckily the sunshine was cooperating with our team.

We brought in some local talent to conduct the interview, including a professional interviewer as well as some local grips. You can never have enough footage to help make a video look perfect!

After a hard day’s work, in the evening our crew found some time to enjoy the sunset along the waterfront.

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF ICE CREAM

It might be getting cold outside, but that won’t stop us from having fun with our favorite dessert: ice cream! Our team spent some time recently creating some very appetizing treats and showing them off in a lively way. Check it out below!

Scooping up ice cream for the whole studio!

BEST OF 2015: OUR VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECTS IN REVIEW

2015 was quite a year for us here at the studio! From exciting photo and video projects to awards we were honored to win, we have a lot to be thankful for! Here are some of our favorite memories:

Early in the year, we were still working on finalizing and putting out two exciting video projects. The first was the Seapoint Estate video, where we highlighted a beautiful ocean side mansion.

Another project we finished up was a TV commercial to help promote the Pine Street Inn, a local homeless shelter in Boston. It was exciting to see our work air on Channel 5!

Even though the weather was poor, our spirits remained high!

We also finished up a video helping showcase the non-profit Medicine Wheel and their goal of installing a paved path connecting the Boston National Historical Park.

When Obama came to Boston to open the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States in honor of the late Ted Kennedy, we all enjoyed reminiscing on when Michael photographed Ted Kennedy in 1995.

In April, Michael was honored to be highlighted in Boston.com for his constant philanthropic work for the community and his help for local charities to increase their support and donations.

In May, Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito came to the studio to be photographed for the cover of Scene Magazine. We were all so excited they took the time from their busy schedule to get their portraits taken!

Over the summer, we got started on some exciting video projects, starting with a video and photoshoot featuring Boston Bruin’s goal keeper Tuukka Rask.

Next, we worked on some some dramatic close-up filming and photography showcasing the beauty of the new iRobot product.

We also helped to promote one of Medicine Wheel’s other endeavors, Hand in Hand. The program helps to promote communication and understanding between police officers and young adults.

Using a dolly and a lot of patience, we worked tirelessly to capture the beauty of Circle Furniture.

By the fall, the award announcements began to come in, and we were honored with 4 Merit Award from Graphis Competitions for our food photography work with Baskin Robbins!

The fun continued when we filmed the Mayo Bowl hosted by New England Patriots Defensive Captain Jerod Mayo. It was a lot of work but we made some time for meeting some of the Patriots team, including Tom Brady, Danny Amendola, Chandler Jones and Julian Edelman!

From Touchdowns to Strikes: The Mayo Bowl

The New England Patriots might be superstars on the field this year, but the work they do off the field is truly inspirational. In particular, Jerod Mayo’s charity bowling event for the Boston Medical Center showcases the great support the players have for each other and the community.

So you can understand why were so excited to be the videographers for the event. We were ready and set up well before the red carpet started, which started a long wait for the excitement to begin!

The carpet was quickly a buzz when Jerod Mayo and his family showed up. We were fortunate enough to get the exclusive spot right by the door and got the chance to talk to many players including Malcolm Butler, Nate Solder, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman!

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 12.30.35 PM

Kim Zyotti, the owner of Blue Sky Entertainment and the person who helped to make the whole event happen also took the time to talk to us about the charity and all the good it’s done for the community. Over the last 6 years, the annual event has helped to raise over one million dollars for the Boston Medical Center!

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 12.39.20 PM

There was even a back door entrance from Tom Brady! While he managed to sneak by our red carpet interviews, our own Michael Indresano got the chance to say a quick hello.

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 1.31.15 PM

Then it was time for the main event: bowling! Mayo, his family, and other Patriots players bowled alongside teams of fans.

Although he was focused on bowling strikes, Edelman also managed to spare a moment to talk with our production team!

There was also a pool tournament in a second room, where a select few got the chance to shoot pool with players, including Nate Solder or Sebastian Vollmer.

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 1.37.58 PM

Last up was the auction, which brought “the Chandlers” together to help get the crowd excited and bidding high!

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 12.45.07 PM

By the end of the night we were exhausted, but some of our team worked through the night to edit together the video showcasing the amazing night. Check the video out below and check our blog out for other exciting behind the scenes access!

Chillin’ with Carbonite

If your first thought is Star Wars when you hear the word Carbonite, you are not alone. What this company offers, however, isn’t in the stars, but rather in the cloud. Founded in 2005, Carbonite is a high tech company that provides cloud backup and storage services to clients across the globe. In recent years, they have since expanded to become one of the leading online data backup providers in the world. But that has not made them take themselves too seriously. From a life size Yoda statue to silhouettes of Darth Vadar, this 50,000 square foot office screams fun!

Michael and the team photographed over a dozen top execs from Carbonite. Shooting was a breeze as we set up using our latest ultra high pixel-count camera addition to the family (more about that at a later point). Michael has also invested into using the latest technology in lighting and you can see in some of the shots below the lights are all LED – no more hot lights and sweaty sets! This was a COOL shoot in more ways than one.
