Filming & TV
Airship & Balloon Company owns a number of un-branded balloons, which can be used for filming and TV. We regularly work with the main broadcasters and independent production companies as a balloon offers a very stable camera platform and can carry cameraman, director and presenter - something a drone can’t do!
ABC holds a UK Civil Aviation Authority Air Operator Certificate and is a BBC Approved Aerial Filming Contractor - allowing them to film from our balloons.
## This picture shows ABC flying a Finnish film crew, who were making a documentary with a profoundly deaf presenter, who was visiting Bristol Fiesta and wanted to experience flight in a completely new way. We had a great flight and landed with 50 other balloons at the North Somerset Showground. The programme will be broadcast later this year.

Tethered for filming.
ABC worked with Michael Flately to film this balloon, tethered above a Chateau, for a promotional video for the Feet of Flame World Tour.
