Title: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on June 04, 2016, 11:26:03 AM
I recorded six designs back in Dec for the new channel and we struggled with the set up, lights, backdrop, shadow etc
and then when we filmed the lights in the room reflected of my glass's and Geoff said it was a distraction.

Now for six months I have been meaning to re-make them, well today I am, it's all set up down stairs so I'm just
off to record,

1, Hippo
2, Rhino
3, Wobbly flower
4, Snake
5, Sword
6, Parrot

All a little different to what I have seen on youtube but no doubt possibly there somewhere,
to be honest it's not a place I usually visit to look at balloon designs.

After these I'm not sure what we will record, possibly a selection off the DVD's.
A selection of my favourite designs or the model of the months so that they are available as PDF as
on the site and also on video for those who prefer.

Off to record, see you soon....................hopefully.

I'm just doing some one balloon designs to start with Darren,
hopefully a little different to all the other designs out there at the moment.

I allowed myself three hours to film six 3/4 minute designs.
I managed to record ten, so four extra,

7, Shield
8, Space Gun
9, Dolphin
10, Fish

The Dolphin and Fish I re-designed as well, I think the Dolphin was filmed the fourth time around but
considering I only came up with the design 10 minutes before I started filming I think it all worked OK.

The set up I finally went with, we did try moving into another room with dark curtains behind etc
but went back to the normal set up for the front room tapes with a floodlight on the floor to try
and take away the shadow on the wall behind.

Yes, it was meant to be from the beginning of the year but sometimes I'm a little slow.
I have to take them down to Lord G who will be adding the graphics and intro/outro.
So hopefully by the end of the month. I hope to get 26 up this year and then one every two weeks from next year.

I'm stating off with a few basic designs first and then building up.

That's great news Graham, I am sure it will work out well for you, You have a great way of explaining instructions to people!!

I will pop onto YouTube and have a look when you put them up, and add my support of course!! :)

Good luck with it all. ;)
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on June 19, 2016, 10:57:00 PM
Lord G has the recorded disk and the intro and outro are all sorted,
this is one of the first designs that I have filmed the instructions for.
My one balloon rhino that uses more than one balloon, it keeps me happy.

The first one of the balloon tube tutorials that I made many moons ago is now up on the site.

Thanks to Rob for helping us to upload it and to Lord G for the editing,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCUbOOKCWX8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCUbOOKCWX8)

There is an interview with Ken Stillman that I did for balloon click a few years back that has a
little more insight to who I am and what makes me tick. Just in case anyone is interested?

We have had over 400 views now which I'm rather pleased with, I will win a £1 from my grandson if it reaches 500
by Monday morning. I did notice someone has hit the thumbs down on the clip though, I wonder why?

I found out last night that comment was from my grandson Harry,
so his mum turned his volume up on phone and all was OK.
Made me laugh.

I wouldn't worry about getting any thumb down, you always get them with anything Graham, you can't please all the people all the time.

Nice to see you are nearly at 500 views, that is pretty good :D

We are going recording tomorrow, fingers crossed for the next ten designs.
Still only one balloon models,

Swan
Dave
Rabbit
Dog, ears.
Bike
Dinosaur
Teddy
Sausage Dog, new.
Pony
Machine gun

I think the one balloon machine gun is a killer, see what I did there? He He.

I will be putting up one tutorial a week so by my reckoning that will take us up to the new year.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Danny the Idiot on August 29, 2016, 10:58:00 AM

Ha ha, so am I.

I started filming at 11 and have done five up till now,
infact my one balloon Dave (Dove) took the longest and I think we went with version five eventually.

Lunch time and then the last three to do,

Machine Gun
Sausage Dog
Dinosaur
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on August 29, 2016, 04:59:15 PM
Well I think I need to learn to count. There I was at 3.30 all happy as I thought I had made 10 tutorials.
Went to take a few pictures and could only see nine...............oops. I forgot to do the Rabbit,
so at 4.30 I had to re-set and got it done in one take, the light was not too bright and I think
you can see the back light shinning up, but then it's not a professional set up.........that's for sure, he he.

You can see by the picture we did not get this filmed with all one takes.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on September 04, 2016, 08:06:24 PM
Tutorial number three is up, it's my favourite one balloon design.

I have just posted the next instalment for BalloonTube, it's a one balloon snake
which I think has a different look and feel to other one balloons snakes that I have seen.

You can also add a scrap so its a one balloon snake with two balloons ;)

Great vids Graham. I have been making that sword for years.
Did I show you the sword when you were over Kenny?
A few of the designs are many years old, the swan is fairly new and the one balloon machine gun
I made when I was at eurojam convention possibly 3 years ago. The snake is a couple of months old
and the rhino I think was after the Bishops Stortford day in January.

Come to think of it some are old and some fairly new :)
You can see I'm rather decisive there, he he.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Kenny on September 20, 2016, 06:21:18 PM
I may have done, It's been so long since i was over i can't remember :D .

I do tend to show a lot of things when i come over as i attend so rarely and i have so much to share. Anyway it's no big deal i am sure many people come up with the same designs in our balloon world. I do remember how i came up with it though, it was for Halloween and was trying to make a base for a small pumpkin for line work, i remember i got a lot of cheap led's to put inside each pumpkin. Anyway that's how i came up with that base, i remember making it and it looked like it would make a great sword, it's also a great base for a spiral sword as well. If you add a pinch twist  to each corner and make a few of them, then connect the pinch twists you can come up with some really cool designs!! ;)

I have just loaded up this weeks tutorial which is the one balloon parrot on a swing
but we have a slight problem............there is no sound.

So when I get home form a show I will have to take it down and put next weeks up.

Last weeks has 2 minutes at the end of a blank screen and this weeks no sound, double oops!!

So if you fancy making the parrot with me miming you have a few hours till I get home from my show.

I have taken the parrot down pro temp till we get the sound sorted out and replaced it with
the one balloon dolphin, I was going to use the one balloon space gun but that has over two
minutes at the end blank similar to the one we have on the shield.
So a couple of technical problems this week that I'm sure Lord G will sort out for us when
he gets back from his holiday.

I have just spent the last 2 days filming for BalloonTube.
I still struggle getting the light correct,
I keep getting reflections in my glass's and the light changes
but the lights stay in the same place, very odd.

So I have filmed 10 designs, 6 yesterday and 4 today.
They took 7 hours all together and will be coming out in the new year.

Next year it will be every other week, just so that I'm not too stressed with everything.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on December 06, 2016, 07:21:46 PM
So far we have filmed, flower, bow and arrow game, handbag, dolphin, penguin, swan, poppy troll,
panda, large sausage dog and a snail. This is the sausage dog.

After filming some more designs Monday and Tuesday for BalloonTube, we had 45 items bagged up.
I was working a Christmas fair today so took them along as an added extra.

When it came to paying me they even asked for £5 change, even though they got an extra 45 designs free.
Still...............keep smiling.

I have just posted the very first non one balloon design onto BalloonTube,
it's a two balloon flower and I just realised when I watched the clip I do not
mention the size of the balloon for the stem, oops!

It's a 160 balloon and you leave approx. a 4 finger bubble un-inflated.

It's a Dolphin made from I think 4 balloons. I have changed the design a few times since filming
and there is a thread on Balloon Chat with some variations on the Dolphin you might like to take a look at,

Getting ready tonight for some filming tomorrow. I have approx. 10 designs I wanted to film.
Just going through the designs and think............oh hang on how did I make that and then
having to look at my own instructions to jog my memory. Made me smile  :)

On the list are the one balloon Cat and Camel, Pikachu, Koala, Mickey Mouse Wand, Plane, Sea Turtle, Rabbit

then on the reserve list if filming goes well are the ride in Unicorn and a Crocodile.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on March 15, 2017, 03:20:50 PM
I think the saying is all filmed and in the can, or in my case on the memory card for Lord G to edit.
I got the eight I wanted to film done and will look at the other two tonight and see if I fancy filming them tomorrow.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on March 16, 2017, 10:01:46 AM
I have decided to film the ride in horse and crocodile this morning as all the filming equipment is still out.
The crocodile I re-designed last night and fairly happy with it and the horse
I did a little last night and was getting there and this morning tweaked it a little.
Problem is I have 3/4 variations that I like with it but have decided to go for
more a basic look as some do mention my designs are not for the real world.
The ride in horse uses six balloons.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on March 16, 2017, 12:36:17 PM
I did the horse in take one and also the crocodile but did not like the way the croc looked at the end so did version two.
It's 18 mins long and was done in one take, I was quite pleased with that.
I'm going to go and do the ride in horse again as I have another idea that might make it easier to all fit together.

Balloon Tube Sunday, Camel. I have no idea how I have subtitles on You Tube, but they can be funniest things to read. I'm sure however that Graham normally makes more sense than this! :D

You wont believe this BUT yes it is.......it's Sunday and it's BalloonTube Sunday.
So what's on offer for this week? It's a two balloon Pikachu, I thought I only
made this a couple of months back but it's actually a year old now and
has taken me this long to film and post for BalloonTube.

Hope it's of some use to a few, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp2hsEtWScA (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp2hsEtWScA)
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 11, 2017, 07:41:10 PM
So the plan for tomorrow is to make a new set of tutorials for BalloonTube.
I have six planned and if all goes well I have a weaved flower love heart to make as well.

Playing about with the fox design.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 11, 2017, 07:43:10 PM
A few more of the designs.

Just refreshing my memory on the cat and working out the best way to make the two balloon shield.

I took out the pinch twists for the horse/pony reins, looks a little smoother.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 12, 2017, 09:05:35 AM
I was laying in bed thinking about the elephant design...............as you do!

And had another idea, will make and get another picture later.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 12, 2017, 09:06:23 AM
Just off to set the front room up for the filming.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 12, 2017, 10:31:14 AM
I have put filming on hold today, struggled a bit setting up the lighting so there is no shadow.
I think that is sorted now but have a few orders and a large order to put away so will try again
on Saturday as at the moment only have an evening gig.

Trying to film mid-week with running the business is a bit of a challenge,
you'd have thought I would have realised that by now.................oops!
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 12, 2017, 12:24:25 PM
Lucky we did go for plan B earlier as one of the neighbours is having his tree cut down
and the noise two chain saws make is pretty loud.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 13, 2017, 09:43:10 AM
Adding to the heart weave, then taking a little away.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 14, 2017, 10:05:51 AM
So I had a thought about getting rid of the pinch twists.

It was a challenge weaving it like this, not sure I prefer it though.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 14, 2017, 10:08:09 AM
Then it was playing with the elephant time.................ohhhhh matron!!

Trying to take out the pinch twists by the trunk/head joint.
Put in the tulip/apple twist, the trunk has a lot of movement this way.

But then I wanted there to look like a mouth so added a pinch twist under the tulip/apple twist.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 15, 2017, 12:57:30 PM
I have just finished filming the six designs, it has taken three hours which is
about the average time. 30 mins per design.

The shield and cat were one take, the elephant an ear twist popped so we had to start again.
And something happened while starting to film the cat that has never happened before on camera...
I sneezed, so much useless information.

We then made the fox and horse in one take and then the last design the teddy............
that was 3/4 takes. I changed the construction so that it was easier to film as we have to
keep in shot the whole time and forgot half way through where I was and then we had a
complete unroll of the head section which was five bubbles, it was quite funny but we filmed it again.

Off to take a few pictures and then this afternoon I'm going to attempt making the love heart
before I go out for my evening show tonight along the river at Staines.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 15, 2017, 05:29:05 PM
So this afternoon it was the turn of the weaved flower heart to be filmed.
All was going OK and then I had an idea that made the centre section filler
a lot easier to explain so filmed version two all in one take.

There is quite a bit to film on this so very happy it was just one take.

After 3 hours of filming and then after 4 hours................and all done for the day.

Well of to do two hours of ballooning over in Staines now along the river.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on July 16, 2017, 01:42:37 PM
It's Sunday, could it be? is it? Yes it's another BalloonTube Sunday.
This week we have the ride in horse for you to view. Hope it's of use to some and
if you do make it then pleas epost a picture here or even over on balloon chat.

On the tutorial I think I made the neck of the horse a little too long,
it was filmed a few months back now.

I have already filmed all the tutorials for the rest of the year so some are over six months
old when we come to publish them and you always see a tweek or two you might make
if filmed again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OW-3bM66LYE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OW-3bM66LYE)

I was up-loading tomorrow's edition of BalloonTube and the tutorial is too long.

No idea if that is good, bad or indifferent.

There is good news and bad news, the good news is that tomorrow is BalloonTube Sunday.
The bad news is that from next year I will only be posting one design per month and
probably on the first Sunday. There will be 50 designs up by the New Year and it makes
things a little less stressful for me with coming up with designs and then getting
someone to edit the filming for me etc. Tomorrow I'm posting the Fox.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on October 22, 2017, 12:04:21 AM
I have just set the camera up and lights for some more filming in the morning.
Hoping to film seven designs, Tank, Rabbit, Angel wand, Owl, Racing car, Crown and Rocket.
That is if all goes well, that will take me up till April next year.

Behind the scenes of BalloonTube when filming.

The second picture is the view that I get, the picture to the left of the camera I have to take
down otherwise the reflection appears in the Blue picture that is behind me when filming.

We have also worked our why there is a glow on the frame
of the Blue picture on nearly all the 41 tutorials filmed.

We have a small window next to the front door and the sun shines in and hits the side of the
double wall on the right of the first picture and then bounces onto the metal picture frame.

We always thought it was the way the light on the floor was positioned.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on October 26, 2017, 12:07:58 PM
We filmed seven more designs on Sunday for BallloonTube,
Tank, Rabbit, Angel Wand, Owl, Racing Car, Crown and a Rocket.

The rocket idea came about form the Levett and Lee days with Thelma
where she made a rocket form a 646.

My rocket went through about 8 changes before I was happy to film it,
this is the thread where we went from A to B, rocket-t11147.html (http://balloonchat.co.uk/rocket-t11147.html)

This is the tutorial for January 2018 as we are going over to one design a month for the coming year.
The design is a weaved Princess Heart, there are quite a few variations on balloon chat if anyone
would like to take a look and I hope the design is a little different from the usual crown
designs and is of use to a few.

That is eight, I also have a tiger, elsa and crossbow on the list for next time.
If I get six filmed tomorrow that will be good and eight would be excellent.
That would take us up to April 2019.

Day eight from BalloonTube,
I will be posting a balloon a day from BalloonTube right up till I think boxing day.
If anyone wanted to join in then you are more than welcome.
Here we go with day eight, the one balloon ray gun.

So a little secret about the ray gun, it's probably was the least of my
favourite designs that I have posted onto BalloonTube.
That was until yesterday when I tried to change things about
and moved the position of the handle, now why did I change
the handle position? If you make it you may work it out.


Then I saw a gun design by Danielle and that inspired me
to come up with another variation so the ray gun has gone
from possibly a filler design to a very usable design for the
real world.

Thanks to all those that have helped and influenced me with
balloon modelling over the years, it's much appreciated.

The gun on the right is the one explained,
see if you can change to make like the gun on
the left with the handle at the back of the gun.


Then using the chrome you can add the arm holder as well.

Many thanks to all those that made a few of the 57 designs along the way
over the past few weeks. It was very much appreciated and hope it did
help a few with developing their balloon modelling skills.

A special thanks goes to Danielle Burnige who kept going all 57
days and made every design, I was rather chuffed, thank you.
Also thanks to all those who commented, it was appreciated.

A few more, we filmed 10 designs today, 9 all with one take.
The tiger I had to do twice but only because I forgot to inflate
the 160 for the tail. So 10 designs and not one popped balloon... :D

It was BalloonTube Sunday yesterday, well to be honest it was last Sunday
and I was away so was unable to post. This month its a spider with
hopefully a nice variation on making the legs a lot easier.
I was chuffed when we came up with the idea so hope you like it as well.

Confession time, I have applied to have adverts put onto BalloonTube.
To see if YouTube push the videos more.

BalloonTube Sunday.
Yes it's BalloonTube Sunday and today we have a brand new design
that I have only made 3 or 4 times, the Whale. Hope its of some use
and if you do make it then please post, would be nice to see with
possibly a few variations on a theme. Thanks.

I had a go at making the whale again as the last time I made it was
back in December for the tutorial. I used Ivory for the under belly.

Post by: Graham Lee on May 05, 2019, 03:14:38 PM
It's Sunday, can it be?
Yes it is, its BalloonTube Sunday, oh the excitement, he he.
This month its the Butterfly tutorial with a nice tip for the
lower body section so that no knot is shown.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-KyFPnYxGk
Hope it is of some use and there are a few variations on
Balloon chat if you wanted to take a look,

There are some variations on the butterfly here on another thread on Balloon Chat,

This is the 63rd tutorial on BalloonTube that I have posted.
There are also nearly 100 over on Balloon chat to view as well.
The tutorial today is a Elsa/Princess design for line work
(If done with a blue dress and white hair)

Hope it's helpful to some, if you could share the clip that would be great,
Thanks XXxx

This month we have gone with the machine gun/tommy gun that I have
been making for quite a few years now. I appreciate some do not like
making guns and this is fine, I usually ask Mum, Dad or guardian of
the child if it's OK to make. Hope its of some use and if you could
share about that would be great.....Thanks XXxx

Well to be honest its next Sunday but as we are sharing a Halloween
design I thought I'd add it a week earlier. Its the Pumpkin design,
hope its of use to some and please share if you would like....Thanks.

We show two variations, the picture is the slightly more difficult version.

All the links now have the design on show so you can see the design being taught.
Plus we have added Balloon Tutorial to every title so fingers crossed it comes up
better in the search engine. This is one of the designs, the one balloon horse,

Its Sunday, and yes its BalloonTube Sunday.
I filmed these all a year ago and did not think about seasonal designs, ooops.
I must try harder next time, this is why its a simple crown design that
we have posted today. There is a more complicated crown design on
Video 46 but this is the one I use when out and about in the real world.
Hope its of use to some?

It's BalloonTube Sunday today and I have posted a design that must be over
12 years old at least. It's my wobbly flower bracelet, hope its of use to a few,

Would be nice to see a few add the design to their balloon menu for the real world.

Today is BalloonTube Sunday, well to be honest it was actually last Sunday.
I think I was so busy doing nothing that I forgot all about uploading the design.
I have gone with a Pug design that was filmed possibly over a year ago now.
When adding the black for the eyes he really should have a little white
edding added to them, I did not do this on the video, oops.
Anyway here is the Pug tutorial a little late, hope it's of use to a few,

We filmed a new Bat, Seahorse, Cow and a Friendly Dinosaur.

Is it BalloonTube Sunday today?
The excitement builds as it is 😁
I have just posted the Nerf Gun tutorial if anyone would like to view,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnwStSnLyRw

I looked at the tutorial and the way I made the handle part of the gun is a little clumsy.
Straight away I though of two better ways of putting that together...…...ooopps.
Title: Re: Balloon Tube
Post by: Graham Lee on June 07, 2020, 12:46:06 PM
It's BalloonTube Sunday today and the balloon tutorial is for a line work Mermaid.

This was the Mermaid that we showed, it was filmed I think in August last year.

I made another version a few weeks back as well, added ears and more detailed hair.

This is a free tutorial to view, I have last week posted my first paid for tutorial which was the Digger if anyone
would like to purchase this and help us out during these very difficult times it would be appreciated.
Like many others we have not had any magic shows or balloon gigs for over 8 months now.
I will put the details in the comments below, thanks for reading XXxx
Title: Re: Balloon Tube

Here are the details for the Digger tutorial, we are hoping the the link will be reading
to post out tomorrow or early next week for everyone who has already purchased.

I appreciate its difficult for many at the moment with no shows or entertaining being allowed at the moment.
