He moved behind the camera and made his directorial debut with Vic, which was screened at the Palms Springs Film Festival.
“He was very respectful of all the actors in all the movies,” George Braunstein, Sage’s lawyer, said of the young filmaker. “You couldn’t mention a movie that he didn’t know everything about. He was a full of life filmmaker with his whole future ahead of him. He was just very up and enthusiastic and positive. He was very proud of his father and proud to be his father’s son.”
