Winner of Young Deaffest 2014 is William Horsefield for his uniquely entertaining film The Battery Battle.


William, 20, was also last year’s winner and as such is the first and only person to win the Young Deaffest Award two years running!



Camilla Arnold, award winning producer / director who shortlisted and judged the films said about The Battery Battle:

“Such a simple concept was turned into a great short film. The shots were beautiful, raw and edgy- perfectly in sync with the mood of the film. The editing demonstrated fantastic storytelling skills, with an inherent feel for pacing. The use of SFX was a pleasant surprise and the acting got me believing in this fantasy world. Wow! William Horsefield is one to watch- he’ll be hitting the big screens in no time!”
