Android Studio not recognizing images.

I keep getting the following message on opening and building the Property Animation project:

Error:(18, 26) No resource found that matches the given name (at 'src' with value '@drawable/mean_something_kinder_than_wolves').

The file "mean_something _kinder_than_wolves" is definitely in the drawable folder and the image shows up in the design. I changed the image name to one of the other images and was able to proceed without errors until I tried to run the program.

Then I ran into a whole series of errors:

Error:(49, 86) error: cannot find symbol variable mean_something_kinder_than_wolves
Error:(62, 27) error: cannot find symbol variable mean_something_kinder_than_wolves
Error:(65, 27) error: cannot find symbol variable playing_with_scratches_ruckus_roboticus
Error:(67, 27) error: cannot find symbol variable the_carpenter_avett_brothers
Error:(69, 27) error: cannot find symbol variable direct_to_video_chris_zabriskie

Why isn't Android Studio recognizing the images? Other than updating Android Build Tools and Butterknife to current versions, my code is identical to the project download from GitHub.
