Just returned from an exciting three-day visit to Peter Hogan, the owner of hogancastings and milbroproshot.com!
It was fantastic. We spent many hours in Peter's foundry, and we got to film every step of the process. The guys had done a perfect preparation job, so we could really focus on the filming with almost no idle time.
Nothing was held back, and Peter took the time to explain everything in person. Now I am convinced that his products are way too cheap, given the amount of time, material and - last not least - deeply red heartblood that goes into every cast frame.
The video is finished, which was a monster job. My longest so far! More a documentary than a slingshot video really. Runtime is 17 minutes total. The video should be online in a few hours (almost 2 Gigabytes of data, a lot for my small countryside DSL connection).
The slingshots I took back home are stunning, shining little masterpieces. Photos don't do them justice, as always with super shining surfaces. But here are some pics anyway!
