A couple years back, while doing some work for the reopening of the storied Brooklyn, NY restaurant Gage & Tollner, we had the honor and pleasure of meeting Wade Siler Sr. and we asked if he'd be willing to share a little of his story with us.

Wade recently passed away at the age of 96 and while it was never quite finished, we felt compelled to release what we do have in tribute to him.

Known to many as “Wade Sinclair” or the “singing maitre’ d,” Wade was beloved for his effervescent charm, sincere hospitality, and absolutely killer baritone voice. He was as much a fixture of Gage & Tollner as the gas chandeliers for the latter third of the 20th century; he started as the restaurant’s head bartender in 1969, and in two short years moved up to assistant general manager, then maitre’ d. For over 30 years, Wade served as the face, and the heart, of Gage & Tollner, up to the day the restaurant closed in 2004.

Wade is survived by his loving children and grandchildren, and his legacy will live on at Gage & Tollner for as long as the restaurant stays standing.

STARBOARD LIGHT — redfitz Films

"As you might imagine, I have watched Starboard Light many, many...many times. So it was with no small amount of surprise and feeling that I found myself crying with frequency when I watched it again for the first time in many years just a few weeks ago. They were good, heart-warming tears though. I didn't realize quite how much I needed them in these times of pandemic-inspired uncertainty and stress. They did a body good and a soul good too. I've been meaning ever since to share the film again together with the best discount I can afford to provide so as to make the owning of the film as cheap as possible for you. I hope it does for you what it did for me and more. Just use discount code: APARTTOGETHER with the digital download."

– Nick Fitzhugh, Director

Sometimes the greatest adventure is the journey home. A love letter to loss spanning five generations, Starboard Light is an inspiring and poignant documentary that shows us how to hold on and asks: does a family make a house? or does a house make a family?

Best all-time comment in response to Starboard Light!

"I think I watched this film ten times while it was on Netflix. Something little would happen during the day that threw my mind back into childhood and then nostalgia would set in and then nothing would help but a hot cup of coffee and Starboard Light. I love this film." – Shelley Sykes

Our Story

We specialize in the production of cinematic documentary and narrative films and series. We’re nimble, adaptable, and believe deeply in the projects we undertake.

Disconnection is the greatest threat to our humanity and to our planet.

Connection is therefore our greatest responsibility and delight to inspire.

Stories are a path to connection because humans understand the world based on the stories we’re told, and those we tell ourselves.

Land is the only thing worth killing, worth fighting, worth lying, and worth dying for. After a devastating hurricane lays waste to their homes, Barbudans must overcome a second and potentially even greater threat—the sale of their island to foreign interests in the name of rebuilding, upending 300 years of communal land ownership.

Very pleased to announce the brand new 52-minute version of Conflict from redfitz is being sold internationally by TVF International.
Just watched your 'Conflict' on netflix. Fantastic. Will be keeping an eye out for you and your work. Thank you for reminding us that we are all complicit.
Donna Ferrato was the first photographer to photograph domestic violence, which had a lasting impact on the way domestic violence is reported and discussed. As part of our Redfitz Conflict series, we spoke to Donna about her life and her work. We are pleased to see further exploration of her journey and photography in the new TIME Red Border Films series. Happy birthday Donna! http://time.com/4353529/donna-ferrato-domestic-violence/?xid=fbshare
[War zone at home] Pendant 30 ans, Donna Ferrato a photographié les violences domestiques aux Etats-Unis. Cette vidéo, troisième épisode de la série “Conflict” créée par Redfitz, porte un regard d'une rare intensité sur ces foyers blessés. A suivre. © Donna Ferrato.
