Bio / Resume
Cinematographer Crille Forsberg’s unique background as a former professional free skier in Chamonix, France, informs his work with a deeply kinesthetic and intuitive sense for movement and form.

Forsberg’s most recent television work can be seen in HBO Max’s successful Gossip Girl reboot. In the feature world, Crille worked closely alongside director Mary Harron, lensing her intense crime drama Charlie Says, which was nominated for the Venice Horizons Award at the 2018 Venice Film Festival. Crille has become known for his vibrant and iconic music videos, such as David Bowie’s Lazarus; Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk; Adele’s Sending my love; and Christine & The Queens La Vita Nuova. Commercial clients include Apple, Amazon, Polestar, & L’Oréal Paris. He has been awarded the Kodak Vision Award at MOMA for best commercial cinematography and the Kodak Nordic Award for Best Cinematography at the Gothenburg International Film Festival.
