Gwyneth Horder-Payton Interview

I love these stereotype shattering interviews of uber successful television director (and good friend) Gwyneth Horder-Payton.


Here is a recording of an interview I did with television producer and director Gwyneth Horder-Payton. She just came of executive producing the television show Tyrant(2010-). Gwyneth has directed television shows like Justified(2010-2015), Once Upon a Time (2011-), Sons of Anarchy(2008-2014), Battlestar Galactica(2004-2009), and The Shield(2002-2008). If you want to know more about the production side of television you should listen to this one. Gwyneth is an engaging intelligent filmmaker.

I recorded this interview over a telephone so please excuse any of the static sounds.  You should still be able to hear Gwyneth clearly.

Dana Scully Quote

Love this quote…


“Time passes in moments … moments which, rushing past define the path of a life just as surely as they lead towards its end. How rarely do we stop to examine that path, to see the reasons why all things happen, to consider whether the path we take in life is our own making or simply one into which we drift with eyes closed?” – Dana Scully

Last week, I interviewed the talented thoughtful filmmaker Varda Bar-Kar a.k.a. my mother. A family friend Dennis Leight filmed the entire interview, then edited it into the video below.
