Two Tales of Ballooning

Two Tales of Ballooning

The spectacles of Sophie Blanchard and the scientific missions of James Glaisher.

This animated video tells two very different stories from the early days of ballooning: the spectacles of Sophie Blanchard and the scientific missions of James Glaisher. The video was produced in 2014 as a part of a collaboration between CHF and students in John Serpentelli's Commercial Animation class at Philadelphia's University of the Arts.
