Winston West, a young American filmmaker born in 2008, discovered his passion for filmmaking at an early age. Starting with stop motion movies at the age of 4, Winston's creativity and dedication led him to collaborate with friends and family on short film projects. At 12, his mockumentary "The Rat Man" won first place at the Youth Comedy Short Competition at the prestigious Environmental Film Festival in the Nations Capital (DCEFF). He also received an Honorable Mention for his film "The Terrible Future" that same year at the International Youth Silent Film Festival Northwest Regional in Portland, Oregon. In 2022, his film "The Damsel" achieved first place at the same festival.
