Filming the Balloon Drop was more work than we ever imagined
Sometimes I just want to have fun. I enjoying creating video tutorials and sharing the things I love to make with others. As many of you may know my main focus has been on my YouTube channel “All Crafts Channel”. I like to make videos where I share the crafts I enjoy. I have been starting to feel a little boring lately so I decided to film a fun channel intro. Together with my son and husband I filmed a new intro this week. We filmed a Balloon Drop for our intro.
I must admit it appeared much more spectacular in my mind…. Yeah, I had delusions of grandeur. First we had to gather all the supplies we would need to film the intro. We inflated 50+ balloons the old fashioned way; Lung Power. My husband suffered a little light headedness but we got all the balloons inflated. We also used party-poppers and confetti guns for the shoot. If you listen carefully you can hear them popping in the background. In order to release the balloons we have to set up a backdrop frame and draped a large sheet over it. We then poured (carefully) the inflated balloons onto the sheet which was being held up by my husband and son. They stood up on step-stools. I then ran to the camera and started filming. Once I said the tag line my husband and son released the balloons. After releasing the balloons they (and I) set off the party poppers. I used a confetti gun which was purchased at Smart-n-Final store. My husband also had a confetti gun. My son set off most of the party poppers. Oh, did I mention that we were in the middle of a heat wave.. and it was super hot in the living room.
