In this Blender Cookie videotutorial, Jonathan Williamson cleverly uses a hook and track to constraint to move around balloons. Very cool.

In this Blender 2.5 video tutorial we go through the entire process of creating a bright, colorful bunch of balloons.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
