Bio
Vasilisa Forbes is a female director who has worked with leading artists and musicians to create striking music videos and commercial content.

She has been a contributing editor to high end publications such as I-D Magazine, Dazed Digital, Vice and Vision China. As a designer and artist her works have been held and supported/exhibited by collections and galleries such as Saatchi, Barbican, ICA and Art Contemporian Paris. Her arts and fashion background adds a unique touch to her music videos.

"Clients come directly to me with a brief and rough idea which I develop into a full-scale treatment. I manage the production, source team and bring the video to life with brilliant grade,. I manage the work-flow myself from start to finish and creating something new and exciting each time to the client’s taste. I’m adaptable, with a variety of work styles, areas and visual directions, each job catered specifically to my client.

I use my strongly broad, integrated range of skills to produce
content from start to finish - developing a concept with the client, sourcing teams, shooting footage, editing content, grading, video editing and marketing on delivery. "

LISHI

Working with Vas on the 'Monster Kids' video was probably the best experience I've had working with a director. She understood exactly what I was aiming for, had great ideas and even though we have to communicate and shoot the video on different sides of the world it was probably the easiest and most fun music video I've ever had the experience of making. I highly recommend working with her.
