Today’s new creation is my nod to the movie, “The Red Balloon.” Filmed in the Menilmontant neighborhood of Paris, France in 1956, this Oscar award-winning short film, directed by Albert Lamorisse, is about a little boy who spots a large, red helium balloon on his way to school.
Shot in Through the Viewfinder style, this pop of red against the monochrome of the buildings makes this one of my new favorite pieces. (hint… there’s a lot more where this came from)
Come to think of it, this could ALSO be my homage to the 80s song, “99 Luftballoons” by Nena. Wait, don’t tell me you aren’t a fan of 80s songs??
