My intention is to tell the important stories of the world in a hyper-competent and truthful manner. Through this, I hope to foster change, laughter, and hope.

Justin McAleece is a socially conscious director and cinematographer of narrative and documentary projects both personal and commercial. He has been dedicated to filmmaking since 1999 and has won dozens of awards and directed hundreds of hours of content and lensed even more. He has conducted hundreds of interviews in a variety of spaces and is equally comfortable directing a team of 50 in a corporate setting or shooting solo on the Serengeti. With the birth of the BETTER Movie series, Justin has redoubled his efforts into fostering transformative personal growth through storytelling and aims to couple science and emotion to change lives all over the world. Justin also wrote, produced, directed, and edited the feature comedy Brick MADNESS and often returns to his comedy roots. Justin is available for Director and Director of Photography roles.

What my clients say about me and my work:

Brick Madness is an incredibly fun film that plays with the mockumentary formula to give us something truly unique.

Brick MADNESS is technically tight – with cinematography that feels rightfully in-the-moment, a crisp sound mix and editing that reminds us of the loose nature of the mockumentary.

The world needs you – your work – and your lust for all things new. Light the torches. . .

Bardo Blues was well shot by Justin and Ian McAleece.

I still remember the first time I saw you use Final Cut Pro. The way you do it, I think it counts as playing an instrument.

Justin McAleece is one of the top 3 most dependable, effective, and kind people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing… let alone working with. Thanks for making this possible brother!

What I can do for you?


If you have a project that you’re passionate about, hit me up and let’s work together to make it reach its full potential.


Your idea is not mine to break down and fix, it’s mine to understand, optimize, and cultivate into something we can all be proud of.


My lighting and camerawork can only function properly if they serve the story at hand. Only by working together can we make the project better than the sum of its parts.

We‘re expected to do stuff that’s awesome. That means we’re going to have to push each other.
