The company Balloon Light Berlin was founded in 2001 by Fabian Friedrich.

The use of helium balloons, which are equipped with daylight or artificial light torches to set the time as an entirely new kind of illumination of large areas at night. Finally the light was unleashed and a large luminous area could hover over the set. Quickly, the advantage of this technique compared with cranes and heavy Boost has been recognized and more and more women camera and camera men put on balloon at night shoots. After the first successes in the night balloons prevailed also in the studio for illuminating large areas. Later, effective, fast and energy-saving illumination of blue or green screen was added. In the external transfer for sporting events, especially in rough terrain, cross-country skiing, biathlon and downhill more and more balloons were used.
