video: I Change

A whimsical romp starring 4 monarch butterfly caterpillars (Howard, Rita, Baby and Mr. Poops-a-Lot) and 2 young boys (Lars, age 4 and Anders, age 15 months). Guidance provided by my entomologist father Samuel S. Ristich, Harvard summer school digital media professor Eric Martin, inspired songs by Duke Ellington and Gioachino Rossini and the greatest inspiration of all, Mother Nature.
