Comment:
Forde is definitely emotionally invested in his students - sometimes too much (he likes to meddle). He sometimes teaches After Effects lessons he hasn't prepared for, and asks students in the class how to do certain things during lessons. His feedback is usually his own creative ideas and not technicalities. But he is a good guy and a big heart!

Comment:
Nice enough guy and willing to help, but wants everything done HIS way. If he gives you a creative suggestion and you don't use it, he will dock marks, which is not helpful in a class like Media Pro, where creativity is important

Incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and absolutely one of the greatest all around profs I've ever had. His passion for his work is evident and Forde will go above and beyond to help his students as long as they are committed. Forde and Steve were a dream team.

Comment:
helpful but extremely biased to favourite students. quick to dispense suggestions (most are helpful) but penalizes you for not doing what he suggests exactly. having steve and dean (in bj/tv production) for a second perspective/opinion is helpful to the "non-favourites".

Need I say anything, Forde knows his stuff! Incredibly helpful and knowledgeable in his field... For god sakes he even has his own telephone line dedicated to DMT students. Now how many teachers can you harass at 10:30 at night on the phone? How cool is that! He is dedicated to his position and I am greatful for his existance!

Forde is the most dedicated prof ever. I dont think any of the other profs would come to the school on a saturday and during their xmas break to help their students out. i have learnt sooo much from this man. he knows it all! provides great feedback and creative suggestions.
