Riff Raff Hires Barney Richard as Partner & Sales EP
London based Riff Raff Films are stoked to announce that it has recruited Barney Richard as partner and Sales EP from FRIEND where he was co-founder and partner since 2011.

Matthew Fone Says: “Riff Raff seems to have gone from strength to strength, but there is only so much I can do, given I have 5 kids, a small brain and a company to run. So what I have been looking for is a partner to build on what we do well: making great creative work and nurturing new talent. Barney’s background, talent and enthusiasm is perfect for this. Great things are brewing, watch this space.”
Barney Richard says: “I’ve always admired Riff Raff as a company - they have always been synonymous with a high level of creative output, unique talent, a blend of young and established directors and they genuinely give a shit about what they do. The roster is exceptional and of course Matthew’s production background is second to none. It’s a company ready to burst and I want to be a part of making that happen. Then there’s Matthew’s silver mane of hair, that was the clincher.”
His appointment is effective immediately as he joins a team of Kate Elson@Agent Elson (Sales/PR) and Sarah Boardman who heads music videos.
