Who We Are:

Three Butterflies, LLC—a producer of original and adaptive content—is built for today’s children and open-minded and openhearted adults who experience diversity in positive and unprecedented ways. We produce programming that stimulates and affirms our viewers’ innate creativity, intelligence, and inquisitiveness about themselves, other people, and various cultures. Grounded in cultural authenticity and beautiful truths about humanity, our original programing affirms the human race and our vast experiences. Our approach is to skillfully demystify countries and communities that are rarely seen or experienced in mainstream medias. Our projects celebrate the genius that every human being embodies especially children.

A favorite of children and adults alike, we produce animated cartoons for TV, film, and new media.
In filmmaking, video production, and other media, the term live action refers to cinematography, videography not produced using animation.
On film we use pictures or interviews with people involved in real events to provide a factual report on particular subjects.
We secure the rights to existing literary works for the purpose of converting the material to animation, live action, or documentary film.
