Moon light using large weather balloon
Posted 31 January 2007 - 11:29 AM
I think I read or saw somewhere the idea of using a large weather balloon high on a rope and striking it with a powerful MSR PAR on a tight beam as moon light.
It would be like a poor man's Airstar light
Has anyone actually tried this and does it work??
I really want to try it

It's mentioned in the American Cinematographer article (Jan '06) on the film, with some photos of the balloons in a field.
You just have to make sure the balloons stay fairly still I guess
