This humorous documentary short features a young deer living among cattle and going through an ‘identity crisis’. Over shots of the deer prancing about the herd, a farmer and his mother discuss how to get rid of this unwanted visitor. Lovingly shot and with a chirping soundtrack that plays off the deer’s springing movements, The Herd was nominated for the Best Short Film award at the Oberhausen European Film Festival in 2009.

Awards:
Best Short Documentary Award at the 22nd Galway Film Fleadh 2010.


Also available as part of Wardrop's Shorts, a programme of five shorts directed by Ken Wardrop and produced by Andrew Freedman.
