This is starting to feel like it's going to be a rather good idea. Now I need to get everything together.
So, "Preparation, Preparation, Preparation" as my dad always says.
I have my planning together and ordered 300 RED balloons (I will be using 200, but got a extra 100 incase some break or go missing etc. *hey you never know*), 200 balloon ties, 2 balloon pumps (should speed things up), string, duck tape and tarpaulin.
I am planning to have an outline perimeter of balloons tied together with string that is fixed to the ground with duct tape in a square shape. The other balloons will go inside this perimeter and when the balloons blow away it will hopefully just leave this square outline.
I have done the math's (didn't take long) and worked out each side will be 14 balloons in length, so I will need to make sure I have 56 balloons pre blown up or blown up first to then be attached to the ground and then the other 144 balloons will be loosely put inside this square perimeter.
I am hoping to have 2 video cameras from 2 different angles filming this intervention, so I will need to get 2 tripods and 2 cameras from 'The Hub' in Scott building. I will have to do this the night before as you can only have them for a night at a time so I will be keeping a eye on the weather as I need everything perfect. Very little wind, no rain and sunny is what I need.
But before you say, I know."The obvious problem is how am I going to stop the balloons blowing away before its ready". simple, the top of a friends gazebo.
In the words of Gordan Ramsey- "Balloon Planning.Done."
