Hi, Ingrid. When and where can I attend to those 1-day jams? Belgium has no jams, except TMJ.

If you consider Fashion as a model!
The one BIG thing I really want to make is a costume jacquet which can be worn in the same technique as my Moulin Rouge dress. Or maybe in time some complete other technique.
And this is ofcourse for Dennis to wear it to a fancy party

And if it has to be worn by a famous some one it would be George Clooney or Pierce Brosnan

Yes, We are planning new DVD's, I don't know if it will be in the Surfive them all serie, but there will be more of our stuff on DVD.
We hope in the first 3 months of 2009 to release our next DVD, I'm also working with some other very high skilled artists on DVD's with there stuff on it. This will be release around the same time.
When they are released, I will make sure it is announced here

We organise them ourselves. Mostly in our own building and than it's very quick full already with our own customers so we don't put them online. Our workshops we give are announced on the following website http://www.ballonvouwen.nl Sorry but it's a dutchwebsite. We're planning to do some bigger jams next year but we don't know what time yet. If we do a big JAM next year I will post it on this forum to. I promiss.

Do you decorate/entertain at corporate gigs?
No it is not combinable with the rest off our business anymore. And also if we would do that we would be the competitors of our own customers and that is never a good thing I think.
We sometimes go with clients (decorators) to big jobs and help them, this way we still are up to date with our decor skills and also we enjoy working on big decors

13, How long have you been running the business?
At the 1st of april 2009 our company has been around for 12 years, but it still feels like we started last week

14, As your business grew did you cut back gradually on the entertaining?
No, I decide on a day that I didn't wanted to perform anymore (I had some bad experiences and needed something else) so we stopped after we done all the gigs that were booked already. Thats when I started doing more teaching (just another way of entertaining)

15, What advice would you give to someone starting out, or wanting to increase their business?
Do what you love and the money will follow, think different. I see a lot off people (here in Holland) who just do what they have seen somebody else do, so they will always be "a copy".
There is a market for every form of (balloon)entertainment out their, do you want to sing songs on stage while making balloons, it is possible, go for it, try.
Also I would say: never stop learning, learning is the key for us to be successful.

16, What road in latex do you see yourself taking in the future?
I still love the teaching part, so I would like to do more of that, also the combination of decor and twisting is something that I will try to focus on more in the future.
Offcourse we also want to supply our customers with the highest level off service and advice, so thats another thing we constantly work on.
17, If you could start all over again, would you change anything?
Yes I really didn't liked my first clownshoes

18, How would you like the future of balloon modelling to develop?
At the rate it is going on now it is hard to tell, because it is developing so hard, it is tough to keep up anyway.


19, Who's the most famous person you have made a balloon creation for?
The prime-minister of the Netherlands, I made him a had, but we had to promiss that we would take pictures of him with it. (it was election time and he is not the most cheerful guy)

20, How do you keep the enthusiasm going & what still excites you about our great world of latex?
A lot off enthusiasm comes from our own Jams, we have them every 2 months for our customers and we now have a very firm base off people attending these jams. What really excites me is when I see how people grow in there skills after being to workshops/Jamsessions/events and see how they tell about it with such a passion, I really get energy from that.
Also just jamming with a small group of good friends I really like, when everything is possible and the weirdest things are made

21, What inspires or is your thought process in coming up with a new design?
My method of coming up with new stuff is based around playing. For our DVD's we just sit and play with the balloons we want to use for that DVD. While playing you get ideas and work on from them.
What I also do is copying "real things" like toys, from balloons. I just see the toy in basic balloon shapes or techniques (I know it sounds weird) and reproduce it.

22, Who would you like to work with dead or alive?
Jango Edwards (http://www.jangoedwards.net/ In my opinion one of the best clowns in the world, he doesn't wear much facepaint, but I really like his style, absurd humor, and physical skills

23, What makes you laugh?
See question 22?
Like some people know I sometimes have a weird sense of humor, I really like dark humor and the very direct hard humor of some comedians. examples: Chris Rock, Eddy Murphy, Richard Pryor, but also some stuff of Andrew Dice Clay I like a lot.

12, Do you decorate/entertain at corporate gigs?
NO
13, How long have you been running the business?
We started our business in 1997
14, As your business grew did you cut back gradually on the entertaining?
No just stopped, I think Dennis is still entertaining but than in his workshops.
15, What advice would you give to someone starting out, or wanting to increase their business?
Do as your heart tells you.
16, What road in latex do you see yourself taking in the future?
The same as we ‘re doing know but then bigger
17, If you could start all over again, would you change anything?
NOPE NOTHING
18, How would you like the future of balloon modelling to develop?
I like the Forums as this one. A lot of people think alike and have the love for what they do. Whit each other you grow more than just playing on your own. Keep on going you all
19, Who's the most famous person you have made a balloon creation for?
Anke Fredericks my model in the Fashion Shows :D :D :D
20, How do you keep the enthusiasm going & what still excites you about our great world of latex?
Our Customers
21, What inspires or is your thought process in coming up with a new design?
My surrounding: Fashion-Flowers-Art-Movies-Friends- time of Year and of course the balloons themselves
22, Who would you like to work with dead or alive?
I like to work with friends on a project like we deed on the last Dress I made. We had so much fun together. That’s what I like best in our job. The fun you can have with other people.
23, What makes you laugh? Dennis :D
