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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

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.
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.

Video Collaboration with Habitat for Humanity
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Back in 2014 my client Inspirus commissioned me to come and shoot photos and video at their annual Habitat for Humanity build they’d planned for an employee named Jennifer Long. Shortly afterwards, I was emailed by a film producer at Habitat for Humanity, requesting that I share my client’s footage with them for a video they were working on to tell the story of Jennifer’s new Habitat home in Fort Worth, Texas. With the permission of my client, I eagerly shared my photos and videos with the nonprofit giant and a couple of months later, I received a link to the video below, which was featured both on their YouTube channel, website and social media pages.
Note: I did NOT edit this video (though I wish I could claim that I did, because it’s that damned good) and the only footage I’m claiming as my own include volunteers in pink shirts and house construction.
Apologies for the lousy thumbnail quality of the YouTube embed. Since that was uploaded to the Habitat for Humanity YouTube channel, it is outside of my ability to control.
Agency Web Design Samples
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This is a sampling of some of my web design work for marketing agencies and their clients.
Brochure Design for Tarrant County Libertarian Party
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The Tarrant County Libertarian Party contracted me to design a simple trifold brochure for their political organization. One of their board members was so pleased that he wrote this blog post about it.
Portraits of Cardiovascular Doctors for Heart Place
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Since February 2013, I have been working with Heart Place, the oldest & largest cardiovascular group in North Texas. Visiting their more than 25 locations, my job has been to capture new head shots for all of the doctors within the Heart Place network. These photos are being used on their new website heartplace.com as well as Heart Place marketing collateral.
The interesting thing about this particular gig, is that the amount of time I get to spend with each doctor can vary greatly. One doctor may want to spend thirty minutes with me while another may only be able to give me five minutes in between seeing patients.
I like to joke that I’ve met more doctors in the last 12 months than most people will in a lifetime. Below are some of the photos from this ongoing project:
