When Sue contacted me asking to use one of my YouTube videos in her blog. I was very excited. She was writing an article about the World Balloon Convention (WBC) which I have attended. I created a video of behind the scenes of this amazing event. It shows many of the artists from around the world working on their competition pieces.

I hope you enjoy Sue’s blog as mush as I do, and find my video entertaining and educational as well.

I love it when I hear people say “I can believe that is made out of balloons!!!” Well, Believe it 😉

Twist & Shout 2014

Twist & Shout 2014 was held in Rochester, New York. In the middle of a very messy winter storm, but balloon twisters being who they are did not allow a little bad weather to get in their way. This was one of the most amazing events I have had the privilege to be a part of in the balloon industry.

The jam room was my favorite place to be. It was where most of the energy, creativity and sharing took place. Those sleep deprived twisters would stay up all night creating wonderful sculptures. Most of the time their artwork would wind up discarded. The floor soon became covered in creations full of color, which I called “treasures!” I would search the floor early in the morning to see what I could discover. I had a plan in my mind to make an Epic Balloon-amation video.

The last night of Twist & Shout, I gathered all my treasured pieces together and began my task. I only knew a few of the artist names and sculptures and the rest I’m hoping to discover when they see this video. I would love to know every person that helped to make this video. So if you see something you created please tag it or comment so you can get your well deserved credit.

I want to thank everyone whose talent made this Balloon-amation possible!!

Happy New Year

Start the New Years Eve countdown. 10-9-8- Three, Two, ONE!!!!!

Happy New Year

This year’s New Years Eve parties were a little bit of a challenge for me. 3 days of set up combined with 3 days of the Flu! Lucky for me I had my “A team” balloon crew to rely on. Together we were able to install 14 events. Some were big and some were small but all were important. Most of our events were balloon drops! Meaning me climbing ladders up and down and up and down.

It’s always fun for me to add a video of special events we do. So here is one from Lights All night! a 3 day New Years Eve party.

I want to wish everyone the very best in 2014!
