The breadth and depth of Richard Delano Forbes Jnr’s knowledge of production, and the television industry in general, belie his relatively youthful years. He grew up in the family business, Phase Three Productions, for which he is now co-owner and a key driver. Forbes holds a BFA from the prestigious NYU Film School and an MBA, with Honors from Florida International University. He understands television and the business of television.
Forbes has worked across the Caribbean, producing live multi-camera sports and entertainment events among other TV-related projects. His multi-skilled training, deep experience and the high esteem in which he is held by colleagues have allowed him to serve in several different capacities.
In recognition of his outstanding capacity and forward thinking entrepreneurial skills, in 2002 Delano received the Prime Minister’s Youth Award. In 2013 he was identified as one of 50 Jamaicans under the age of 50 years seen as instrumental in taking the country forward. For three consecutive years (2002 – 2004) he won the Caribbean Broadcasting Union’s Best Music Video of the Year Award for his Directorial skills. Of note is that he directed two music videos for Tessanne Chin, a Jamaican who won NBC’s The Voice in 2013.
