Beth and George Gage, as Gage & Gage Productions, have created award-winning documentaries since 1993. In a complete “about-face” they turned from careers producing and directing TV commercials and fictional features in Los Angeles to producing documentaries with a conscience in Telluride, Colorado.
Gage & Gage Productions creates compelling personal films that will empower viewers, initiate dialogue and prompt action on provocative issues. Concentrating on the environment and social justice, they present issues underrepresented in the current media. Their films educate, entertain, inspire and motivate viewers to become actively involved in humanitarian and environmental issues.
Beth chooses the film’s subject, creates the stories and writes the narration. George is responsible for the films’ stunning cinematography.
Gage & Gage Productions has completed seven longform documentaries. These films have been distributed theatrically, on television, educationally, and for consumer DVD. They have screened in national and international markets. The films have won dozens of awards at national and international film festivals and have been highly acclaimed by film reviewers.
The New York Times described Gage & Gage Productions’ award winning, theatrically distributed documentary, Fire On The Mountain, The Story of the Men of the 10th Mountain Division, as “bracing exploits, hearty outdoorsmen powerfully captured on film”. Snow Country Magazine said it was "among the best documentaries about skiing ever filmed".
Bruce Babbitt, former Secretary of the Interior, said, “Troubled Waters, the Effects of Dams on Rivers, opens up a brand new chapter on conservation history”.
Human Rights Watch International Film Festival, Director, John Biaggi, called American Outrage "a beautifully crafted, powerful, truly exceptional human rights film whose message and impact will reverberate for years to come." The story of Carrie and Mary Dann, Western Shoshone sisters who after enduring 35 years of prosecution, persecution and terrifying livestock round-ups, continue to fight the United States for their land rights and human rights, American Outrage, has won 17 prestigious film festival awards.
