That title might seem a wee bit heavy-handed, but bear with me.
Over the summer, I got to work with a new client. Slingshot Tools is an on-line retailer, carrying the safest and most precisely machined construction accessories on the market. I’m not talking jack hammers or drill presses; I’m talking about saw blades, drill bits, safety glasses and the like.
We produced a 6-piece video series about the company and a few of the products they carry. Before I tell you why the project was so fun I have to mention that Mike, their spokesperson and co-owner, was one of the coolest, down-to-earth people I’ve ever worked with.
Easily, the best part of the project was the “Stress Test” for each of the products. In the case of the Edge Safety Glasses, this involved shooting a glasses-clad mannequin head from 2 feet away with a high-powered nail gun.
