SONNET  Balloon

Aka 'BalloonHead The Musical', a (hopefully) feelgood tale of the happy-go-lucky balloon that just would not die.  We just about exhausted our 'comic ways to pop a balloon' vault on this one.  During production, much debate raged about whether our hero's facial expression should change to reflect the perpetual peril and relief it experiences along its hazardous journey. But ultimately we kept coming back to its insanely fixed grin which somehow seemed to work in whatever situation our plucky balloon found itself in. Animated in 3d. For Johannes Leonardo.
