Andrew Forbes

about

For over twenty years, Andrew has been exploring the relationship between stories and visuals as a director of photography, artist, educator and more recently, as an interactive designer.

He is fascinated by the power of images, enjoys experimenting with their possibilities, and considers both a privilege and a responsibility to develop distinctive visual interpretations of a story. He holds an MFA as part of OCAD University's Digital Futures program and is an proud associate member of the Canadian Society of Cinematographers.

Andrew's production experiences have taken him all over Canada and around the world, with subjects as diverse as deadly escapes in distant lands, the labyrinthine political arena of Turkish harems, potentially lycanthropic adolescents and fantastical family adventures In northern Saskatchewan. His creative curiosity, teamed with an ever-expanding technical and theoretical knowledge base, has produced experiments in stereographic imaging, interactive narrative films for touchscreen devices, 360 ̊ video presentations and transmedia collaborations which are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with images and story.

When not in production, Andrew's other passion is to explore technology, cinema and history with students of all ages. He teaches film production, theory, cinematography and visual storytelling at a variety of local and national organizations, including a production practicum at the University of Winnipeg.
