BUTTERFLY – Short Film About A Swimmer’s Struggle With Epilepsy


Via SwimmingWorld

“Butterfly,” written by Alex Withers, tells the story of a teenage girl whose success in the sport is interrupted by a sudden epileptic episode. Using the popular crowdfunding website IndieGoGo, Withers and his team have raised 1,238 Pounds (US$2,060) in 12 days, and have expanded their objective to bring in 2,000 Pounds (US$3,328). It’s Withers’ most successful IndieGoGo campaign, having raised just 503 pounds for “Men of War” last year.
