« I just showed up and I saw this thing in the sky and I said: what is that? What a great reflector! And I thought really seriously that there was reflecting light but it was the balloon itself that lit up the whole golf course. Anyway, we had 3 of these and I don’t think we could have shot that stuff without that. »
« No products are equivalent. We could not get the same light before using LUYW balloons. The balloons have the advantage to be moved very quickly and are very effective when you must often change the source or when you have a very large set to light or when you need to put the lighting source very high.
