How To Make A Balloon Animal

Learn how to make a puppy with the people from TWISTED: A Balloonamentary.

Getting noticed at SXSW isn't the easiest job for any film maker, so everyone’s innovating. For the makers of TWISTED: A Balloonamentary, they’re hoping you can’t see a balloon without thinking of them. At the world premier of the latex-laden doc on Saturday, the whole crowd got a quick insight in the first, great life-lesson that balloon-twisting gives – how to make a balloon dog. There’s also twisters working the crowds, handing out balloon hats, animals and flowers to the crowds. And if you miss out on that, just watch out for their promo-postcards, each of which comes with a free balloon and instructions on how to make your own balloon critter (hint – when twisting, pull the two sides apart a bit, to cut down on deadly friction.)

Twisted screens again on Tuesday at midday at Dobie.
