OFFICIAL SELECTION 2007 SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST FILM FESTIVAL

A flying octopus. A Trojan horse. Two 100-foot-tall soccer players. All made out of balloons. These are just some of the masterful creations you will see as Twisted: A Balloonamentary takes you right into the heart of Twist and Shout, one of the world's premier balloon twisting conventions. Exploring how eight balloon twisters' lives are dramatically changed by a little piece of latex, this hilarious and heartwarming documentary is about passion, salvation, love, death, race, religion, and a whole lot of balloons. With animation narrated by Jon Steward, Twisted: A Balloonamentary is a story about people who discover that once you can make a balloon dog, you can do anything.

Naomi Greenfield, Sara Taksler
This is the first feature documentary for Sara Taksler (favorite balloon animal: two birds kissing in a heart) and Naomi Greenfield (favorite balloon animal: monkey on a palm tree). Sara, a researcher for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, has random talents that include talking backwards and a remarkable fake sneeze. Naomi, an Associate Producer for FableVision, began twisting balloons at age 13 to combat her fear of balloon popping.
