Universal studios as in the big company with the globe as their logo?

If you wanna CG butterfly, It'd be better if you could give some more details on how what kind of angles you'll need, or possibly ask someone to do it all in an actual 3d program.

or universal can give you some names of people to do it for you. and since they ASKED you to make it, they should have no problem paying the person too. You must be a really great filmmaker. I'd like to see some movies.

yeah the butterfly doesn't really matter, even if it isn't 3d, i just need a nice looking one, to flying through the last shot of the movie, nothing spectacular, and yes that is the company with the globe, let me know

no sorry, i don't have a website, i'm not a proffessional or anything, when i was 18 i made a movie and sent it in there, and they liked it, and now they asked me to make another one, hopefully to be turned into real movie, maybe, i don't know. I just don't know anything about 3d programs or cgi, or anything, i'm just a director, thanks

well when i sent my first movie in, i didn't know what anyone was gonna say, but i figured hey i didn't have anything to loose, and hollywood and film people are always looking for new stories ALL the time, no matter how they get them, even if they don't use your movie, they might use your screen play or story line, and that is awesome too, so i just sent it in, to and address i saw, and like 3 months later i got an email back from them, so that is how it all started. Do you make plugins?

go to the plugins section on this website, and on the left side you should
see the word plugins in little writing click on that.Then if you scroll down a little there should be a button that says advanced mode or something like that after you click on that check all the check boxes except for "if file name" and then type in bugs and you should see a plugin called bugs


I'm not that good at explaining things so if you don't understand this i would not be surprised

that big butterfly plugin just rotates. it was made for me, for my film "The Butterfly Effect" - which will be out soon. I've done a matrix style 360 degree shot so that is why it rotates.
