About Us

Butterfly Films is a family business, in the best sense of the word.

We believe that success begins with trust: we treasure our relationships; with our clients, our collaborators and our crew. With this in mind, we’ve assembled a family of creators with three things in common: extraordinary work ethic, contagious passion for craft, and an audacious disregard for outdated conventions.

Harnessing these qualities, we challenge the boundaries of what is possible.
