Virtually every project listed above was also edited by Slingshot Productions. Nowadays, Slingshot Productions emphasizes digital still photography, editing demo reel projects, remastering, archiving, YouTube uploading, consulting, and special one on one video tutorials.
Animals of Katrina was a video project that was edited at Slingshot Productions. It was directed by Bill Dyer and Executive Produced by Elliot Katz, both from "In Defense of Animals" fame, and was a finalist in the 2007 Artivist Film Festival. Pictured to the right is the latest Bill Dyer Crusade to save Billy from a life of solitary confinement.
Special Thanks to the 30 plus animal groups that helped save animals stranded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Thanks is also due to those who shot the video footage, including the brave camera people, their assistants, and news stations.
