About me

a professional freelance filmmaker from London, U.K. As a director Forbes went on to produce his first short film “Project One” A skateboard journey across the architectural landscapes of London, which won “Best Film” at the BFI Future Film Festival, became acquired into the BFI’s National archive and screened at Trafalgar square in front of 4,000 people as part of the London Film Festival’s London Moves Me event. Collaborating as a DOP for Fran Hussey’s short film Bunny Girl which was selected for The BFI Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and working with award-winning director Ryan Haysom. Forbes has gone on to direct a number of promos, Music Videos, and content for the likes of alternative bands Suzerain & IAMWARFACE. While freelancing as a DOP, director, and editor in London with media agencies such as We are Social, 24 Productions & imagination for Global brands such as Adidas, Ford, RIBA, NHS, Samsung. Copa 90, Eurostar & Manchester United. Working within the industry has provided me with many successes and experiences that have helped me learn, grow and reflect. Essentially it is the importance of telling a story that engages and speaks to all people on a human level, whether it is filming for the BBC or highlighting issues and support structures for young people. My journey has taken me to become an award winning filmmaker for the BFI, working for global brands such as Adidas, Ford, Samsung, EA, BBC, RIBA, and NHS Understanding corporate institutional structures, advertising agencies & blue chip global brands while balancing these insights with my creative skills in order to achieve goals set by these projects. At times these experiences have been in a variety of roles; as a producer, production manager, director, video editor and cinematographer, each post enabled me to communicate effectively to different departments. Observe and learn from those who carry immense knowledge and skills, filmmaking is a collaborative process and one never stops learning.
