#IrishAbroad: Garret Walsh’s The Observer Effect picks up two awards in North America
Garret Walsh’s debut short film, The Observer Effect, continues to enjoy success at international film festivals, picking up two awards recently in Canada and the United States.
The Redline Film Festival in Canada recognised the work of the film’s production designer Lilla S. Nurie with a best production design award. Lilla, working with a small and exceptionally talented crew including Aaron O’Sullivan and Adeline Poufong built an incredible, immersive set for the film’s climax and brought the film a production value that’s at home on the big screen.
The second award was bestowed at the 51st edition of the Worldfest – Houston International Film Festival. The Observer Effect picked up a Platinum Remi for independent shorts in fantasy/horror. WorldFest is one of the oldest independent film and video festivals in the world and over the years it has hosted and awarded early works by Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ang Lee, Ridley Scott, Robert Rodriguez and The Coen Brothers to name but a few.
