Wind, obviously, is a big factor in the ability to utilize the balloon. It did become too windy during the late morning of the day we were shooting. We calculated when we would pull the plug on the ballon and the crew to get them back to their shop before they went into overtime should it remain too windy to use the balloon. But during the latter part of our lunch break the balloon techs were able to position the "cloud" since the wind had died down, and as we came back up the hill from lunch I could see the thing already up and hovering over our location.

Does Airstar require you to hire their techs? Or can the grips on set be responsible for the Cloud? Also, what's in it? Helium?
