FISHEYE is Gary’s first short film and is about the demise of a poacher who is killed by the creatures he hunts,Gary spent 3 yrs making this film which was due to the complexities of his script as the main characters in the film were animals,Gary’s efforts soon paid off when Fisheye was selected for the shortlist of 8 films from 160 entries worldwide for a BAFTA award for best short film. A decade later Fisheye was released via the internet and was well received. There is an old saying by WC Fields that says never work with animals or children due to their unpredictability so in true Dawesy fashion he decided to direct,write,shoot and produce a film with animals .
