What!?: I think I’m An Animal
I was featured on What!?: I Think I’m An Animal in 2013. This documentary aired on LogoTV in the United States and on TLC and other networks around the world. My appearance in this documentary is what spawned the infamous meme “On all levels except physical, I am a wolf”. Despite this being the source of my notoriety, I feel this documentary misrepresented me, the community I am a part of, and all who participated within it. This appearance occurred before my transition, and I am known by my former name, Shiro Ulv.
In a step towards the right direction, I was featured in an MTV Special called “Owning It” in an approximately one minute short. MTV collaborated heavily with me throughout the entire process, and ensured my statements were unaltered and accurate when presented. At my request, they also provided an animation. Although the animation could be better, I was generally happy with this appearance. Although, like my prior appearance, it occurred before my transition, and I am known by my former name, Shiro Ulv.
I spent a day with OTHERKIN (People who aren’t entirely human) – Anthony Padilla
I was interviewed by well-known YouTube Anthony Padilla for his “I spent a day with…” series. I was extremely pleased with the outcome and quality of this interview, and would absolutely not mind working with him again. I do feel like the other subject he interviewed with represents a completely different faction/subset of the otherkin community which I am not a part of, but I did enjoy the contrasting and after interacting with Luis, found him to be a nice and genuine person. My only criticism is the title card depicting human pups, rather than otherkin.
