Meet Andrew Davies Gans
ANDREW DAVIES GANS Partner/Executive Producer
Andrew was born in southern California, but for the majority of his childhood he was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. Before film, Andrew’s dream was to become a major league baseball player. As a high school senior he was drafted to play professionally by the Tampa Bay Rays. Like his father before him, a career ending injury brought the dream of baseball to an end. Built from the same drive, resilience, and vision that led his father, Danny Gans, to be "The Man of Many Voices", Andrew found his way back to Los Angeles pursuing a career in the film industry where he’d begin acting, writing, and producing.
As a filmmaker Andrew expects to bridge the gap between the indie and studio film, telling intimate stories with strong universal themes in a big way. In challenging what has been established, the goal is to inspire a new perspective on modern filmmaking. In 2015, Andrew founded Brackish Dream Entertainment with business partner, Cary Moore. The success of the companies first project, ‘Border Hawk’ which Andrew co-created and executive produced lead straight into the production of his first feature, ‘Get Out If You Can’ with Oscar nominee, Ed Harris in a supporting role. While working on projects such as, comic books, novels, TV shows, and feature films, Andrew is constantly honing his skills as a story teller and taking the necessary steps towards his directorial debut.
Whether the role be writing, directing, or producing, the goal for Andrew is to share Brackish stories all over the globe; to provoke thought, inspire, entertain, and perhaps teach by demystifying some of life’s greatest challenges. There’s a lot left to say on the long journey ahead and he looks forward to sharing his vision with you.
Meet Cary Moore
CARY WAYNE MOORE Partner/Executive Producer
Born on the bayou in Southeast Texas, Cary’s creative drive to take him out of “the sticks” put him in front of a drafting table. While at the firm, Art Ayala Architects, he found an outlet creating many floor plans including several of the high-rise buildings in Downtown-Houston. The creative value of producing stuck, but the focus transitioned to entertainment. While at U of H he worked on several productions, learning everything from lighting and sound design to acting to even directing a few one-act plays. Unable to shake a what-if scenario, the only option was to sacrifice one art form for another. After leaving the firm and moving to Los Angeles in 2000, Cary quickly found his way into production on the pilot of Gilmore Girls. From there Cary has been developing relationships for the better part of two decades on projects such as: Vacancy, The Donner Party, Justified, and Hart of Dixie.
As a lover of entertainment and a creator of content, Cary set his sights on forming a company modeled after his genuine ideals. He understood to accomplish this he would need to make his own movie. After writing several feature films, he found the path that would bring this to fruition: Border Hawk. This series caught the attention of another young, hungry filmmaker, Andrew Gans. The two of them formed Brackish Dream Entertainment while in collaboration for the short film production (modeled after the Border Hawk series). Quickly, Cary has found himself filming, developing, and creating, while continuing to add to the company’s slate of 10+ projects.
Cary looks forward to the company’s future as he continually works towards building the Brackish Dream team, a team dedicated to a collaborative environment culminating in a singular outcome: a visual atmosphere designed to move generations.
