MTV’s Too Cheap To Buy VMA Nominated Director Josh Forbes A Ticket.

Josh Forbes

Josh Forbes is a funny commercial director, whimsical music video director and helmer of the horror hit “Contracted: Phase II”. We chat about the differences among his many disciplines of filmmaking. He also tells the tale of being nominated for Best Rock Video Of The Year for “Shut Up And Dance” by Walk The Moon at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Yet oddly, the filmmaker was not invited to the VMA’s, and was forced to buy a ticket. Apparently, Viacom is strapped for cash.

Check out my favorite Josh Forbes music video for Big Data, the catchy “Dangerous”. It’s chalk full of comedians we love like Judah Friedlander, Fred Willard, Josh Fadem, John Ennis.

I’ll be in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, December 19th, 2015 conducting my popular Commercial Directing Bootcamp so sign up today!
