Following an idea of Pierrick Duvoisin the company Total (Suisse) SA 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 (Switzerland).
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 work on this project with us !
