Shock winner of Tropfest 2010 as Elijah Wood joins judging panel as they throw the dice
Abe Forsythe’s short ‘Shock’ took out the first prize at Tropfest 2010 with  the award being presented by US actor Elijah Wood.

Abe Forsyth, now 28, has been entering Tropfest since he was 16.  ’Shock’ is  about a morning radio host whose on-air personality conceals the desperation and frustration of his private life and  was inspired by controversial radio and TV personality Kyle Sandilands.
