How I Became An Elephant is one girl's story... which led to a movement, which led to a continuing plan... to save a species.

How I Became an Elephant is more than just a film. It is a coming of age journey and a call to action. Join 14 year old Juliette on her life changing journey to save elephants before time runs out. The SE Asian elephant is facing extinction in the wild, while the animal entertainment and elephant trekking industries are growing exponentially.

Elephants are dying at an alarming rate, both in the wild and in captivity. Their numbers down from hundreds of thousands to just a few thousand. With minimal laws for protection and so much corruption within the system, the situation looks bleak. But the two women featured in our project (Juliette and her Asian mentor, Lek) will stop at nothing to reverse the damage. They are determined to make a difference and we are determined to document it, bringing their story of courage and compassion to audiences worldwide, because this isn't just about elephants... It's about believing in something and standing up for what you believe in. It's about species interconnections. It's about our world.  

How I Became An Elephant is one girl's story... which led to a movement, which led to a continuing plan, to save a species... which then led to YOU. WELCOME TO THE STAMPEDE.

How I Became an Elephant is directed by 16-time award winning filmmakers Tim Gorski and Synthian Sharp. We are finally well into post production but we still need funding for final editing, music score, sound mix, graphics, animation, distribution, duplication, publicity, educational format. 

Every penny raised goes directly to the finishing of this powerful and very necessary film. 

LARGE FORMAT PRINTS FOR HIGHER TIERS

Every elephant in these photographs has a unique rescue story from a life of hardship and abuse. Their bios will be included in the final large format high-resolution prints for your wall. By supporting us at this level you indirectly help each and every one of these  elephants and so many more. How? By donating you are helping us make the film that tells their stories, that sheds light on a cruel industry, and that educates millions potentially.
