​about slingshot visual media

ted gordon, director

You're only as good as your people, and we think ours are some of the best in the business. Our founder, Ted Gordon, has been around long enough to know...After a film school degree from the University of Michigan, Gordon got his start in TV news and sports in Detroit, winning several AP and CADDY awards for best sportscast as a writer, producer and reporter at WXYZ (ABC). With a desire to move into longer-form production, Ted moved into the Detroit film community and worked with Midwest advertising agencies to produce numerous commercials and videos, at several production companies including GTA, Universal Images & Pike. Next stop, Columbus, OH, where Gordon became Director of Broadcast Production at Ron Foth Advertising. An agency housing its own internal production staff, RFA built an international  portfolio and Gordon's production travels took him from London to Vancouver, Paris to Greece, and New York to Chicago to Los Angeles. From there, Gordon joined The Shamrock Companies in Cleveland, building a Broadcast Production department while serving as VP of Broadcast and Visual Communications. Finally, Gordon started Slingshot in 2009 and hasn't looked back since.

He also currently serves as VP of Brand Strategy & Multimedia at Maximum Velocity, a marketing communications agency in Cleveland.

At Slingshot, we think we've perfected the art of visual communication through creative imagery, across all mediums & deep into our customers' memory banks.

We listen to the client, understand its brand and execute its message in ways that cut through the endless sea of videos out there. Innovative, engaging creativity in every's what we do. 

Looking for a chance to knock down a few walls with visuals that excite, entertain and educate? Give us a call; we'd love the opportunity to assist and hopefully impress you!

It's why we chose slingshot...we find our target and aim right between the eyes...
