Deaf Film wins prestigious award

SH Line Producer | 10:57 UK time, Wednesday, 4 November 2009

Angelfish Productions - husband and wife team John and Paula Maidens - have won the RTS Midlands award for 'Best Fiction' for the short film Caterpillar.

Caterpillar is a short film about a sensitive and nature-loving young deaf boy who goes out on a pheasant shoot with his uncle.

The film was written and directed by Mr Maidens, who is deaf himself, while Mrs Maidens was the associate producer.

It faced stiff competition in its category from well-known names such as the popular BBC daytime soap Doctors.

Mr and Mrs Maidens both worked for various BBC productions (including See Hear) before leaving to set up their own company.
