We have been doing an amazing job at raising the profile of Rocking Horse Media and the productions they have been working on. Horses & Biscuits was designed to keep banging the drum about the fine work they are doing with Henry House, a TV pilot that is production as we speak.
But it has been years since AL and Gareth have had a chilled out…chat. This interview is designed to speak to Gareth as a human being, not a director, not a writer, no. I want to find out how much the constant planning and organising has taken it’s toll on him and we get in pretty deep.
Gareth opens up about his drinking and how it ruined his life, then about how giving up the booze opened up doors he never would have imagined. He is now working with genuinely famous people, he is responsible for cast and crew from all over the UK. Rocking Horse Media is in partnership with Derwin College, offering learning and work experience opportunities to students there. The possibilities are endless.
This podcast is not designed to bring you on board with Henry House (although you definitely should) it is to talk about the good things that can happen when can kick bad habits and have a little faith in yourself.
We also speak to the owner of Liar Liar, a stunning cafe at the heart of Oswestry where this podcast was recorded. Thanks for the great location, thanks for the chat and thanks for the lemon and ginger tea that kept my vocal chords intact during this interview!
