The goal of Butterfly Effect Films is to create films which will make a difference. Powerful documentaries which tell an engaging story and will travel far and wide. Short films that will be watched and shared – leaving an imprint far greater than their size. The team combines the award-winning storytelling skills and broadcast production experience of writer and producer Jo Stewart-Smith with the talented, creative eye of director of photography and editor Simon Vacher.
