Sage studied filmmaking at the College of San Mateo, his instructor was Jay Rosenblatt. Learned about cinematography and editing but after film production class he decided to become a self-taught filmmaker (Stanley Kubrick and Richard Linklater) and found it far much more fulfilling. Reading library books on films, history, produced screenplays, and appreciation from college libraries such as UC Berkeley and San Francisco State University, and becoming a San Francisco freelancer of photography and videography of weddings, special events, indie music videos, documentaries, narratives, live performances, and so on. Still insists he is still learning his craft and being a know it all is “boring.”
Always entertaining and searching for truth and originality as possible, focusing on female-centered stories (and feels strongly we don’t have enough it).
