JustaShelf Promotional Videos and Photos

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Have you ever wished for an expanding shelf? Inventor Michael Henn invented JustaShelf, the world’s first adjustable, clear plastic shelf he created then patented, called JustaShelf. He and his family hired me to create videos meant to introduce this unique product to the market. Upon meeting Michael, I knew right away that his unique personality had to show through in these videos. So we opted to shoot at his home just outside of Dallas / Fort Worth, where he has more than 30 of these shelves stashed in various locations.

The first video is meant to poke fun at classic infomercials that we’ve all sat through, while bringing a bit of humor to keep people entertained for a couple of minutes. The second is a “how to” video that demonstrates the ease of installing and removing JustaShelf. Then finally we tied the two videos together into one, longer commercial. Additional camera work provided by Beastman Productions.

PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY:
In addition to the videos, JustaShelf hired me to shoot some professional product photos for their website and Amazon.com pages. See a few shots below.

Music Video with National Recording Artist Afroman

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Back in 2014 I was presented with a unique opportunity to film a music video for national recording artist Afroman, for his new single “Smoke On It.” Joseph “Afroman” Foreman presented me with an .mp3 of the song, the suggestion to have break dancers included in the concept of the video somehow and said he had three days he could shoot with us while in town for a few shows.

Working with some of the most creative people in Dallas / Fort Worth along with support from several local businesses and activist organizations, this video represents my first meaningful contribution to the world of rap music. The fact that this particular music video is for an artist I honestly used to listen to in high school makes the victories of this video taste all the more sweet.

Thank you to everyone who made this possible! The next time someone you know mentions making a music video, I hope you’ll send them to iamshaun.com. New business or press inquiries, please contact howdy@iamshaun.com.

PRODUCTION NOTES:
The video was written in collaboration with musician Microphone Lewis and comedian Tokin’ White Guy.
Filmed on location at Hempy’s Emporium in Arlington and Lucky Horseshoe Tattoo in Fort Worth.
Video produced by Rafeal Enrique Santiago with 2nd camera work by Marty De Leon.
Special thanks to the Law Offices of David Sloane and @MotherEarther Concepts & Designs.

Super Blood Moon, Lunar Eclipse Photography

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Had fun with my first attempt at astrophotography during last night’s Super Blood Moon lunar eclipse. Here’s my favorite shot of the evening, taken with my Canon 5DMKii and a 70-200 f2.8 lens. It’s not one of the best photos I’ve ever taken but I’m particularly happy with the framing of the moon between the tree branches and the number of stars I was able to pickup, despite living in an area with major light pollution.

Tradeshow Booth Monitor Video

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Our client needed a motion graphics video created with Adobe After Effects to play on a continuous loop on 60″ plasma television at a trade show. The extra kicker on this project was that they wanted some of the segments to appear as if built with Legos, which we were able to accomplish. Since this was displaying at a loud convention, it was deliberately created without sound.

Logo, Website, Photos and Video for Active Healthcare Medical Office

ABOUT THE CLIENT: For over 20 years, Dr. David Bradley at Active Healthcare has provided North Texas chiropractic patients with the utmost in personal commitment to remove interference (subluxation) from the nervous system and live a healthier life.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The client wanted a complete redesign of their brand from the ground up so we started with a new logo for use on business cards and social media graphics. Then we designed and developed a mobile responsive website in less than 4 weeks, featuring his new logo and new photos that we took inside his medical office to give people a better idea of the space and portraits of the doctor himself. Finally, we shot the following video entitled “Phases of Healing,” in which Dr. Bradley explains how your body heals from injuries and how chiropractic care can significantly speed up that process.

View Dr. Bradley’s new website at www.activehealthcare.us and Like him on Facebook at Facebook.com/ActiveHealthcareDFW.

ADDITIONAL NOTES: Since we began working together, Dr. Bradley has been treating both myself and my long term girlfriend Andrea for back and neck trouble. We strongly recommend him to anyone considering chiropractic care or in need of physical rehabilitation in the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex. Call Dr. Bradley’s assistant “Jenny” and leave them a message, asking for a free consultation and letting them know that you’re a referral from me – Shaun McAlister! The # is (817) 282-7600.

Kickstarter Video Featuring POV and Night Time Footage

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A small company that produces unique helmet mounted lights for night riding of bikes, motorcycles, ATVs, etc hired us to produce this Kickstarter video. The goal was to both demonstrate the product with night videography, including Point of View (POV) footage as well as discuss the unique features of the lights while crowdsourcing the needed funds to achieve economies of scale by expanding production.

PRODUCTION NOTES:Filmed using a tripod mounted Canon 5DMii camera and a helmet-mounted GoPro camera. These three guys were biking at speeds of nearly 20mph in the dark thanks to my client’s product. Watch for a particularly painful (and very real) fall at the 4:45 marker.
