The Butterfly Circus

I worked on a short film project for The Doorpost. Such an amazing group of people. I had such a blast on my overnight shoot! Great set, costumes, story, and crew. It is currently competing as one of the 10 finalists.

At the height of the Great Depression, the showman of a renowned circus leads his troupe through the devastated American landscape, lifting the spirits of audiences along the way. During their travels they discover a man without limbs at a carnival sideshow, but after an intriguing encounter with the showman he becomes driven to hope against everything he has ever believed. Starring Eduardo Verástegui (Bella), Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth, Fantastic Four) and featuring the debut performance of Nick Vujicic.
