a thank you to Roger Waters and team
After our initial press release in December 2016, Sean Evans (film director and visual director for Roger Waters) contacted NWD expressing interest and support for our project. He shared the design with Roger Waters, and Roger offered support for our effort, ultimately by allowing the use of the famous Battersea Power Station balloon. The Waters team shared the digital model for the balloon, and NWD updated their renderings and imagery to include the iconic pig balloon (originally known as Algie). NWD is working with a fabricator in Oxfordshire that replicated the balloon for a 2011 Waters/EMI float above the Battersea. If you are not familiar with this inflatable artwork, look it up. It has an interesting legacy. More to follow on the balloon makers.
