THE WORLD’S FIRST BALLOON OPERATOR DEDICATED TO FILM-MAKING
HAVE YOU CONSIDERED USING A BALLOON TO ENHANCE THE DEPTH OF YOUR FILMING?
Hot air balloons offer several key advantages to serious film-makers:
Gone-With-The-Wind are the only UK/European balloon operator to focus solely on aerial camera work, and employ pilots specifically experienced in providing film service since 1972.
The World's Greatest Balloon Adventures on which we worked with Marco-Polo Films was broadcast in Nov/Dec 2012 on ARTE.
For previews of each of the unique episodes on Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Kenya (with Alan Root), the Alps and Venezuela (with Werner Herzog) see http://www.marco-polo-film.de/de/trailer/

In early 2013, we successfully completed a new BBC wildlife documentary filming and flying in south-western Burma with our new Cameron 140. The 3-part series called 'Burma: Kingdom of the elephant' will be broadcast in Nov/Dec 2013. Watch out for the introduction in part 1 where all aerials are done from our balloon flying over very challenging countryside near the Bay of Bengal and the endless jungle of Arakan.
"It was an incredible trip - from the balloon and the wonderful elephant footage, to the dramatic fires and the richness of the jungle - I think it will be a fabulous series" - Senior Producer, BBC Film Series on Burma.
|"We can highly recommend for instance that for aerials for your shoot that you work with Allie and Phil Dunnington from Gone with the wind . They have the expertise and balloons to be able to get you fanastic aerial pans even in remote locations." - Panoramic Journeys|
