The movie producers behind ‘Precious’

Before Oprah Winfrey lent her name to Lee Daniels' "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," there were producers Sarah Siegel-Magness and Gary Magness.

Before actor-director-mogul Tyler Perry signed on to introduce his sizable audience to a Harlem teen named Claireece "Precious" Jones, there were the Magnesses.

The couple live in Denver and have their production company, Smokewood Entertainment, here. As producers of one of the most talked-about movies of the year, they were there when it mattered most.

They were there when risk and faith — that dynamic duo of independent film — were the things that could make a movie (or not) out of a fledgling project.
