I filmed this promotional video for Balloon Concept. A beautiful sunny day in air with friends in the valley of Château d'Oex. We wanted to film some sequences and edit a small video with the balloon "Newton" who will participate at the Eco Trans Canada Project and in the same time promoting other aerial sports with hot air ballooning, skydiving and paragliding. A lot of fun, a lot of friendship and a lot of laughing. Many thanks !
Eco Trans Canada ambitions to cross Canada from west to east on a revolutionary hot air balloon.
