The Setup-
I booked cinema city in Norwich on the weekend of Abbie, my girlfriend's, birthday. Telling her it had been organised by a local production company to show some of the work we had made this year, I invited 50 of our family and friends, as well directors and crew of some of the films we had made. The final film was this one, and she didn't suspect a thing.

Extra Details-
There are many hidden clues for Abbie to spot during the film. From her sister's chest to all the cereals being reorganised in her order of favourites. I hired the motorbike and bought new leathers as not to make it too obvious it was me. I wanted her to suspect something but to not know what for sure till the end. The balloon launch was what started this whole thing off; this idea of adding a bit of history to what was already a family heirloom and the rest of the story grew from this. For any disbelievers, it is all 100% real, no tricks and I did send up the actual rig to 109,154 feet.
