Pay Me your imaginations and I'll get you your dreams... Anthony 'Passion' Forde
I set up Artistic Talented Original Productions to aid in the ever-increasing need for independent, inspirational music videos.
I am a poet, director and former dancer who has been inspired from watching people like Hype Williams, Little X, Horace and Zav Ove, Max & Dania and Anthony Thomas. These directors have worked on Music Videos, Commercials and TV programs I have appeared in, as a dancer, for the likes of Misteeq, Channel 4's FLAVA, Jamelia, KFC "SOUL FOOD", Pete Tong, MJ COLE, Abs Breen, ex-Suga Babe Siobhan Doherty and Sweet Female Attitude.
My shift to Directing came when I met my mentor Anthony Thomas a former Dancer turned Director, on the set of Channel 4's Flava. Inspired, I decided to attend Doncaster College part of Hallam University in Yorkshire, to study a degree in Screen Writing for Film and Television.
After my first year I decided to move back to London, Middlesex University, changing my degree title to Writing and Media with Journalism and Communications. Here I was able to fuse my passion for spoken word/poetry with the art of Directing and Film Making. After 10 years of making music videos I decided to go back to University to do my Masters in Cinematography and Post Production.
I am ATO, Artistic Talented Original...I am one but we are many and we are connected.
