One of the big draws of Little Nightmares is the fact that audiences vote for their favorite picks in the category of BEST SHORT, BEST DIRECTOR, and BEST FX. Today, the winners were announced with the the horror-comedy Tasha and Friends managing a near sweep. Wow!
AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARD WINNERS
BEST SHORT: (TIE)
UNCOMMON ENEMIES & TASHA AND FRIENDS
TASHA AND FRIENDS (Greg Kovacs)
Not only did Tasha and Friends tie for Best Short but its director Greg Kovacs also took home the inaugural Best Director Audience Choice Award. With an eye for blending humor with horror, Kovacs lead Tasha and Friends on quite a sweep at this year's festival. A very honorable mention goes to Karen Lam, director of The Meeting, for coming in as a close runner-up.
BEST SPECIAL FX:
Guts, gore, and puppets galore! Tasha and Friends completes a near-sweep by bagging the coveted award for Best Special FX. The audience of Little Nightmares 2014 obviously fell in love with Tasha and Friends's cast of mentally perverted puppets. With the accomplished work of special makeup effects artist Mitchell Stacey, Tasha and Friends solidified its domination of the audience choice ballot. Runner-Up: Dead Rush (dir. Zach Ramelan).
