Butterflies is a very short movie of just two minutes duration which we made whilst making a feature length animation of Brice Higgins' 'Eve Rending Tales'. 'Butterflies' demonstrates basic functions of the 'Kevin Bates Virtual Puppet Theatre' in which the puppets are drawings and manipulation is achieved by bespoke computer software.
'Eve Rending Tales' is a story about farmyard animals for children. Butterflies do appear in the feature but as incidental characters only. Here they are the stars!

Music is 'The Market, Stanley' from 'Hong Kong Sketchbook' by Michael Regan. To purchase the sheet music £10 or a CD £10 (both together £15). please click here for mail order payment page
