Billy’s Balloon

Billy's Balloon

As Sir Paul McCartney once said: “Animation is not just for kids, but adults who use drugs.” I guess he’s right.

“Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt‘s final student film tells the strange story of a boy and his balloon. “Billy’s Balloon” (1998) took home it’s first award at the 1999 Slamdance Film Festival and was nominated for the Short Film Palm d’Or at Cannes Film Festival, the cartoon has since bewildered and confused people around the world.”

Thanks, Ned.
