Mike Miller spent 10 years as an award winning art director and creative director both in Australia (McCann Erickson and Y&R) and New York (Y&R) before making the move to directing. His work can best be described as mini-movies. He has managed to consistently capture that rare combination of excellent dialogue and performance along with an intuitive feel for visual storytelling while shooting beautifully crafted cinematic images. His commercial work spans simplistic human emotion to heavy layered special effects. His efforts in narrative, drama and light comedy has consistently earned awards at the world’s major award shows including a Gold Lion at The Cannes Film Festival, Silver World Medals at The New York Festivals for directing and Gold at The Australian Cinematographers Society (NSW).
