Butterfly Dollar Bill
Last weekend I brought my family to the Ellwood Butterfly Preserve just outside the city of Santa Barbara. It's a little place where Monarch butterflies gather this time, every year. They always come back to the exact same spot and it is a magnificent experience. While I was there, I was inspired to create an effect where you change a borrowed dollar bill into a "living" paper butterfly.
I went back to Ellwood with Aidan, a camera, and a dollar bill and made a video tutorial on how to make the butterfly:
If you try this and apply it to a levitation or animation effect, please send us a performance video. We'd love to see it!
Here are a few gimmicks that can be used to make the butterfly move and fly:
