About Us

Butterfly Films was started in 2009 by Anna and Felix. They’re now married with two kids, run the company from the back of the house and create pretty much everything together in one way or the other. And it works. As of 2021 they’ve been joined by Valentia as Head of Production and Sikelela as a trainee.
