"We hired Shaun to assist with recording a virtual tour of one of our facilities. Shaun communicated quickly and with purpose every step of the process. His communication made our team feel confident that the project would be completed with great results even though our team was in a different state. The quality of the footage was great and all parties were happy with the results. I would definitely recommend Shaun to other manufacturing and production facilities in need of onsite videography."

"My recent project with Shaun was the second time I have worked with him. Both times he was easy to work with and produced great quality photos for us to use in a variety of Marketing materials. We are in the off-highway machinery business, so it can be difficult to capture high quality, interesting photos but that is exactly what Shaun has now done for us, twice! I will definitely use him again next time we need more photos in the Dallas area."

"As a large, cutting edge mortgage company, we needed someone to shoot and produce our Training Video Series. After countless interviews, I selected Shaun McAlister to complete the project. Throughout the entire process, he was very professional, communicative, and super easy to work with, despite me being so particular. The end result- our project came out well beyond our expectations. I highly recommend Shaun and will be using him for future projects. "

"Shaun was referred through my network and he has been a valuable resource for multiple projects. He is a talented videographer and editor. I have used him for multiple shoots including executive videos and client testimonials and I have always been impressed with the results. At the same time, his customer service is excellent. He is very responsive to requests and I know I can trust him to interact with any subject in a professional manner. I would definitely recommend his services to companies looking for professional quality video to share internally or externally."
