Hot Air Balloon Rentals for TV & Film
If you are looking for a hot air balloon rental for a tv commercial, tv show or movie project, Sky Drifters has previous experience and is happy to work with you.
Experienced Balloon Pilots to Partner with Your Film Crew
We have a team of experienced balloon pilots who will work with your film crew to create winning footage. Whether you need just one balloon or many we can accommodate your request. We are not strangers to the film and commercial industry. Many well-known companies have already embraced the power of hot air balloons for their projects. Sky Drifters has partnered with these companies, combining our hot air balloon rentals with their creative teams to make powerful commercials. Some of these include:
- Apple TV - The Sky is Everywhere
- The Entertainment Network
Balloons also work for creative film works, and Sky Drifters has the experience and knowledge to help you set up for your shoot. Instead of relying on CGI or green screen techniques, you can have a physical balloon for your television show or movie. This increases the realism of your finished product. Working with our licensed and insured pilots means the entire process is safe, too, so your film crew and acting talent can enjoy the experience fully.
Use Our Green Screen Balloon for Total Flexibility
When you are shooting a commercial and you want the balloon to match the brand of your client, you can easily do that using our Green Screen Balloon. Purchased specifically with film and television in mind, our Green Screen Balloon now gives you the flexibility to have the exact look you want without spending tens of thousands of dollars on a customized balloon.
With the Green Screen Balloon, you can put any design, pattern, logo or image you want on the balloon. Do you want to film a scene with a branded balloon floating over Northern California’s wine country? Film your shot with the Green Screen Balloon, then add your logo when you edit the footage. Do you want a specific pattern to match the color scheme of your commercial? The Green Screen Balloon lets you do that. Do you want to show more than one balloon over the course of your film? Simply change the look of the balloon when you edit to look like multiple balloons. This balloon gives you unlimited flexibility.

Save time with Our Tethered Balloon Rig
At Sky Drifters, we understand that scenes are not shot in one take. And hot air balloons by their nature do not stay in one place for very long as they float with the wind. To give your project a realistic look, we have developed our own rigging system to allow the balloon basket to appear as if it is flying. This gives your film team the ability to shoot as long as they need to capture the footage you need, without concern for increased wind or having the balloon drift while you are shooting. With Sky Drifters and our tethered balloon rig, you can shoot your footage in less time without sacrificing the quality of the finished product.
Why Choose Sky Drifters?
When you need to rent a balloon for your TV, movie or commercial production, Sky Drifters is the right choice. Not only do we have one of only two Green Screen Balloons available, but we also have unparalleled customer service and some of the industry's most competitive pricing.
Choose Our Beautiful Location, or Bring Our Balloon to Yours
Our location in the Sierra Nevada foothills gives you some of the most breathtaking scenery available. If this area is the right backdrop for your project, we can meet you and start the filming process. Have your balloon fly over the protected lands of the Deer Creek Hills Preserve or shoot your commercial with Wine Country as the backdrop.
In addition, we can bring a balloon to your location if you need a different backdrop for your project. Because of our tethered balloon option, we can set up a balloon even in areas where wind currents usually don't allow flight. Talk to our team to discuss your filming goals, where you wish to film and what type of balloon will be the best for your needs.
