To me “The Wings Guy story was super important because it was happening right in front of me. Seeing how I lost my own job and hearing the story of Chef Deepak how he was doing everything and the impossible to keep his team working I knew this was a story that had to be shared. I loved every piece of the journey IWF and it’s amazing team have gone through and hope you do as well. We need more leaders who are willing to put everything on the line for the sake of their workers and their business!

Being on The Wings Guy was an amazing experience. Especially, after having just graduated from conservatory it was a good way to dip my toes into acting in front of a camera. Doing the film was very relatable especially at a specific point in our lives where we’re in the middle of a pandemic and how that’s greatly impacted our lives and how a lot of us had to struggle during it, especially the service industry. It’s amazing to see people like Deepak overcome adversities and keep his restaurant afloat throughout this crazy and unpredictable times we are at right now. I hope the film gives a little more insight and appreciation towards restaurant owners and what they all had to go through during the pandemic.
