    About Gareth Sergeant

    Gareth was one of eight writers attached to the CBBC New Voices Initiative.

    He worked in various production roles for companies such as Ecosse Films and ITV, culminating in a year as a Unit Manager for ITV Studios Manchester.  He completed a two year MA in Screenwriting at the NFTS where his short animation Damned won an RTS Award.
