Episode 19 – Legendary Robbie Furman

We are thrilled to bring a major player in balloon design into the Jam Room this week. Robbie Furman was the creator of the Lootles DVD series, and is always looking for ways to do large builds efficiently. We get Robbie’s take on innovation, and giving credit where credit is due. (He does this with great respect for Larry Moss’ work in faces that pre-date the Lootles.) Robbie’s focus now is on developing the business end of balloons, and his Twisticology events are best described as intensive seminars rather than conventions.

Robbie pulls no punches, and gives his honest assessment of some issues he sees in the industry. But he is no curmudgeon, instead anyone who’s met him will describe him as generous and giving to a fault.


Twisticology 2 information can all be found here.

Robbie’s DVDs are sold through Balloon Videos. Many can also be found at T. Myers, just search Furman.
