Chad Dutka - Producer

When he's not managing his musicians or flying across the globe doing humanitarian work, Chad Dutka produces the business end of Room 101 Productions. A veteran of the music industry, he was a booking agent and artists' manager for nearly a decade. His marketing and sales figures are equal in number only to his cell phone minutes used when on a shoot.


Fran Kelsey - Associate Producer

An accomplished author and poet, Fran Kelsey is the the little voice on all of our shoulders motivating us to excel in whatever project we're working on. She owns her own media and publishing company, and churns out novels faster than morning newspapers. Her catch phrase has become the unofficial Room 101 slogan: "Imagine"


Ryan Wentz - Associate Producer

Originally from the computer world, Ryan Wentz brought his innovative thinking and dedicated work ethic to Room 101 Productions in a tour de force that helped establish the company as a feature film production house. An international man of mystery, Ryan keeps popping up in other areas of the country working on various personal endeavours.
