ABOUT KEVIN FORREST

 

 

 Kevin Forrest was born in New Orleans and moved to Scotland at age ten.  While in Scotland, Kevin learned to edit using two VCR's and a makeshift soundboard.  To his parents’ dismay, but along with their loving support, several cameras were obliterated while getting the “perfect shot” during the making of numerous skateboard videos. Lessons learned and seven features and multiple music videos worth of experience later, he is now a freelance Director, Cinematographer and independent filmmaker living in Portland Oregon. Kevin is also part of the Great Notion Filmmakers Collective. In addition to his own and others’ film projects, Kevin assists with video production classes at Portland Community College. Kevin’s recognized ability to create stunning visual images has gained his entry into numerous national film festivals.
