WE wanted to say THANK YOU once again to all of the incredible, fantastic people that put in donations and their time to help spread the Butterflies word. Yesterday was such a wild ride!! We are nearly overwhelmed with gratitude and amazement today. This movie is as much yours as it is ours now! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

We’re excited to reveal, for the first time, a sneak peek at most of our nearly-finished Butterfly Queen’s wings! This montage is our first test photos of these, as the wings have yet to be fully assembled – these represent 6 of our 8 sets of wings, and they will be worn by our Queens: Kayla Jo, Melodee, Evgeniya Radilova, Ali Luminescent, Kai Altair, Dina Satti, Madeleine Belle, and Natasha King.
Our wings were custom designed and handmade by the amazing talents at Randy Carfagno Productions and James Vogel. Each butterfly wing is photo-realistic on both sides to their individual species!
We are getting closer – with all your generous help, I’m thrilled to say we are at 65% of our goal! But there’s still another 35% to go, and remember – Kickstarter is all-or-nothing – so with just 3 days left, please continue to help us spread the word wherever you can. The Butterfly Queens will thank you!
We are pleased to reveal the beginning narration of Dreams of the Last Butterflies! This is the start of our epic faerie-tale poem that will accompany the film, and will be narrated by a Butterfly Queen as we follow the story.
Our first set of real Butterfly Wings for the film are completed! Thanks again to James Vogel and Randy Carfagno for their amazing craftsmanship. (These will be worn by our Monarch Queen, Kayla Jo, but here are being modeled by Evgeniya Radilova.)
