New Hampshire Crowdfunding Update: "BUTTERFLY THIEF" by Olivia Marsh

We've added a new crowdfunding campaign to our website at http://nh.gov/film/crowdfunding.htm. "Butterfly Thief" is a student-produced thesis project from Olivia Marsh at NYU. Marsh is a new Hampshire native and a graduate from Littleton High School. The project is seeking to raise $5500 by 11/23 via Indiegogo. Olivia writes:

"Butterfly Thief follows the story of a prominent middle-aged butterfly collector living in his loony mother's basement who has been stealing and killing butterfly specimens from a nearby butterfly conservatory. This film features romance, family drama, egocentrism, environmentalism, and butterflies! Surprisingly enough, much of my inspiration came from the oddly comedic small-town antics I witness during my childhood in Littleton, NH."
