Prime Minister, the Most Honourable Andrew Holness, has described the late television producer and founder of Phase Three Productions, Richard Forbes, as “a man of great vision who transformed film and television production in Jamaica.”
According to Prime Minister Holness, “Mr Forbes had a passion and demonstrated commitment to media and the development of Jamaica’s creative industry. He was a very patriotic Jamaican who dedicated his life to building up the production house that he started with his wife, Marcia, 30 years ago. Today that production house, run by his son, is a leader in multimedia and television production in Jamaica — and that’s due in great part to Pardy’s passion and leadership.”
Mr Forbes, who’s affectionately called ‘Pardy’ passed away last night (Wednesday).
Prime Minister Holness has expressed condolences to Mr Forbes’ family and friends — including his widow, Marcia, and son, Delano.
