Hasty Pudding’s 2017 Man of the Year Announced!

Hasty Pudding’s 2017 Man of the Year is Ryan Reynolds! Just weeks after the 2017 Golden Globes Awards, Reynolds will be gracing the stage at Harvard’s prestigious Farkas Hall Theater.

CRMG looks forward to filming and live streaming the roast and Q&A on February 3rd! Stay tuned for information on the 2017 Woman of the Year!

Take a look at our highlights from 2016 Man of the Year, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Woman of the Year, Kerry Washington!

2016 In Review!


Mankind may be happy that the year 2016 is FINALLY OVER… but it was the most successful year in CRMG’s history!

We continued our long standing associations with companies including Goodwin Procter, National Media Spots, TEDx Cambridge, Weber Shandwick, Wind River Environmental, ACP Decisions, Springer, CFGI, Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame, and PixarBio and welcomed many new clients and projects into the CRMG family.

We had a blast filming the Hasty Pudding Man and Woman of the Year Events, featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Kerry Washington! Stay tuned for information on this year’s recipients!

Our studio in Newton Center is full of new surprises and toys including a brand new 19 foot wide green screen and an assortment of Skypanels and other top of the studio LED lights. And we’ve added bandwidth on our popular photography and motion graphics services.

The web series, The Ascendants Anthology, spent 2016 touring our last stretch of festivals including the Independent Film and Television Festival, Comic Con, Boston’s Science Fiction Festival, and the Boston International Film Festival (where we won Best Science Fiction), NYCIFF’s Fright Fest (where we won Best Sci-fi TV Series, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress). The Anthology will be screening at the Miami International Film Festival in just a few days and our fourth short film “Horizon” is nearing completion. Get up to date and watch the Anthology here.

CRMG also had a great time collaborating with artist Omri Koresh to create a series of science fiction and fantasy inspired artwork. Check out some of our photos on Pixieset and check out the new page on our website.

Everyone at CRMG looks forward to a productive 2017 with you and we want to wish you all a very happy New Year. Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and stay tuned!

Goodwin Procter, Boston.com, Same Day Delivery

On Wednesday March 19, 2014 a small CRMG crew filmed the groundbreaking ceremony in Boston for Goodwin Procter’s new facility. In attendance was the new Mayor of Boston, Martin Walsh. The ceremony began at noon and by 4PM the edited video was on it’s way. The next morning the video accompanied an article on Boston.com.

Check out the video here:

CRMG with Claire Danes & Jason Segel

The Man and Woman of the Year have been announced for the 2012 Awards at The Hasty Pudding Theatricals of Harvard University. Actors Claire Danes and Jason Segal will be recognized this year.

Charles River Media Group is looking forward to being in on the action again.   Stay tuned  –  pictures and video will come on Friday provided by CRMG!

New RED Camera on the way!

Our order is officially placed for the new Scarlet-X, and we might be the first in Boston to get one!

With burst modes up to 12 fps at full 5K resolution alongside 4K motion capture from 1-30 fps, the camera will allow us to simultaneously capture motion footage and still content.  Can’t wait to start shooting with this baby!


Building a Commercial with FBN Construction

The setting for our recent location production commercial was the frame of a beautiful Boston home, in the process of being built by our client, FBN Construction.

On the day of our shoot, the exterior walls were up and roof was in place, yet most beams were still exposed, providing a very dynamic shooting environment for us to play with.  We arrived with a full truck of equipment, turned the house into a commercial set, and had an exceptionally smooth day of filming.

FBN upgraded to the ARRI Alexa camera package and so the detail and beauty of the construction really stood out on screen.  Also, the authenticity of having the owner address the TV audience from this environment was an effective choice for this spot.

In one of his interview responses, Bob said, “We’ve built hundreds of houses before, but we never built this one.” CRMG can relate!  For all the video production and commercials we’ve created, we’ve never built one like this.
