The Butterfly Circus, a short movie with big hope

If you can set aside 20 minutes and watch this movie, I think you’ll be grateful you did. It’s better than lots of films I’ve paid to see in the past. You can learn more about the project and see it in HD if you click here.

    I Was at Cinema Society showing of your short film. I can understand why foriegn countries want to show this in their schools to teach english because it servees two purposes. The message is a brillant one, one that most children in our own schools should see. I believe if they did they might grow up with more compassion and understqanding then they do today. It has left a lasting impression on me and I am trying to get my whole staff at our bussiness to watch this so they can get a new perspective on adversity. Great job. Good luck with the feature film. Also an another note, someone had mentioned a small tidbit on the filming, it also was beautifully done. I understand the difference because my niece is at USC film school and we recently got to preview 15 shorts for finals. Their is a difference when someone has a natural eye for filming and one that is learned. My niece has that ability. You are a natural tallent (you and your staff)and you will go very far. Again good luck with the feature… can’t wait to see it.
