This is a short montage of Hot Air Balloon footage I took while at the Whamobass hot air balloon festival in Coalinga California. Whamobass is the longest running balloon rally in the world!
My father and his friend Jim Eckford are Hot Air Balloon pilots and I have been surrounded by them my whole life. I took my first trip when I was just a few months old, and have been in love with them ever since!
There's one shot at 8:11 that is absolutely impossible to plan and was a total acciden! It was so awesome I could barely keep from jumping up and down while I was filming it! The shadow of my hot air balloon PERFECTLY eclipses another balloon!
