Steven Gute is a filmmaker who has worn many hats in his now 20-year career. Gute works as a director, producer, writer, cinematographer, journalist and editor, and already has a long resume of credits stretching across a multitude of formats. While his origins lay in narrative films, he eventually worked on a number of documentary films, including: Leonardo Di Caprio's 11th Hour; followed by Radicalized, a portrait of millennial resistance during the Occupy movement; ongoing front-line documentation of protests at Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter; and ultimately, leading a team to the Arctic to film glaciers in decline for HBO’s Ice on Fire. He has worked as a journalist for institutions like The Young Turks and Red Canary Collective. His current series about water (Confluence) has taken him to 48 states thus far. Steven is a one man studio and hopes to continue to shine light on the truth.

    Stevan took care of all the little requirements and delivered the footage. Excellent at project-related communication that makes things more clear in advance.

    Steve was very flexible and made the shoot work. Had a lot of common friends with the interview subjects so helped to create a very friendly environment.
