Instead of saving for my kids’ college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

    I really admired the single darker colored butterfly in the corner of the shot. That was a good addition.

  8. Anyone else noticed that the wings of the butterfly moved similarly to the wing of a dragon fly only less motion in the back wings? I was watching 1 of Em and I saw that the same wave motion the dragonfly does happened only lies of the curvature

  19. kondomonster says:

    That was cool. I'm an animator. I used to think that butterflies flew ungracefully. They looked like they just flopped around in the air. But when you look at the video, while they're not as graceful as a bird, there is a nice flow to their movement.
