A new Eco Balloon is born 2013
Following an idea of Pierrick Duvoisin the company Total Gaz Suisse joined this innovative concept to build a new hot air balloon for passenger flights with Eco Balloon technology. I was commissioned to document and film the different parts of the conception, building and flying of this new Eco Balloon. We travelled to Spain and Italy to film the different part of the processes in the factories of Ultramagic and Bonanno Burners. We filmed the first flight sequences the 1st December 2012 in Château d’Oex with beautiful snowy landscapes and amazing lights. In January 2013 we filmed the last air-to-air scenes with a flight above Le Creux-du-Van (CH). Congratulations to my friend Pierrick for his innovations with the Eco balloons and his amazing work on this project. Many thanks to Totalgaz Suisse and a special thank to all the team and to all the wonderful persons who worked on this project with us.
These projects allowed me to enter the world of innovation, technology, team spirit and challenges. People who push their limits to search for and build new technologies for the future. The Eco Balloons are a new generation of hot air balloons with amazing performances (consumption up to 4x less than a traditional hot air balloon). More informations and pictures on the project page.
