They didn't sync the frame-rates properly.

I can't wait to see their version of The Red Balloon.

There's already a baloon scene in The Wizard of Oz.

Working in Mary Poppins was quite a risky career move.

I prefer the ones with unconscious balloons.

All 18 in a single collection, helium and celluloid. Creator Jerry Rees wrties: Jerry Rees here. Hope everyone has a good time with these bits of digital whimsy. In answer to the inquiries - I animated all the Balloon pieces in Adobe After Effects on a Mac. It's kind of my nod to "the Red Balloon." Most were done in the middle of the night. Sleep is over-rated.

None of these balloons captured my heart like the balloon from The Red Balloon.

Among all of the stars in movie history who happened to be balloons, the Red Balloon was the most talented.

I miss you, Red Balloon.

At first I didn't get it, but then I watched CasaBalloona.

Yes.
