If anyone has worked with us before, you may have had the pleasure of working with the lovely Barry Heaps. Barry is our Head Producer / Head of Production and has been with Fueld Films for a few years now, but we are thrilled that as of November he's with us full-time. Yep, he's 100% all ours and we couldn't be more excited to share the news. In honor of bringing Barry aboard, we wanted to do a little Q&A with Barry so you can get to know him better. There's lots to love about Barry, including his signature accent and hat!
