GROUNDED - created by Monica Stefanelli
GROUNDED is the story about a baby elephant on the savanna who only wants to leap around with the other animals. Problem is, elephants are the only mammals who cannot jump.
This film was made for my Chapman University senior thesis project and was completed in 2013. Since its release in 2013 it has been accepted into film festivals around the world including TIFF Kids and won awards such as "Audience Choice Best Animated Film" at the Sedona International Film Festival. I hope you enjoy watching this little guy as much as I enjoyed making him!
