Over the course of the International Balloon Fiesta weekend during Octoboer 2004, a lot of great footage was gathered of the balloons.
Two versions have been put together, the first version is to Tom Pettys learning to fly. A fast paced look at the events of the weekend.
The second is to Swan Lakes I Pas De Troi, a much more elegant view of Balloon Fiesta.
In all, about 2 hours of footage was shot during a weekend of balloon flights, and in excess of 15 hours was spent going through and sorting each
of the shots out, rating then editing them.

Damien states: Ryl, glad you enjoyed the balloon fiesta video. Athens, Greece sounds a lot more exotic than Abq, NM! But then who am I to guess as I have not yet been to Athens! January 16, 2007, 10:51 pm
Ryl states: I was born in Alb and am now living in Athens, Greece...I loooooove and miss the ABF and NM in general. Thanks so much for these videos--they transport me a little closer to home for a few minutes. You might think the is the "more elegant" of the two ABF videos, but it was the Tom Petty version that gave me chills..... January 11, 2007, 6:31 am
