Miller began his directing career at the American Film Institute with the short film Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School.  The film won numerous awards and began Miller’s professional career as a director.  Off the heat of the short, Miller directed numerous episodic series such as Thirtysomething, Northern Exposure, Popular, and Jack & Jill, and feature films Class Act, Houseguest and The Sixth Man for Warners and Disney respectfully.  Looking to get back to his roots in independent filmmaking, Miller and his wife, Jody Savin, set out to start anew.  Ironically, their new start began with a feature version of Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School which premiered at Sundance ’05.  The team followed that up with Nobel Son which premiered at Tribeca ’07 and most recently Bottle Shock which premiered at Sundance ’08.   In ’12 Miller & Savin made CBGB, the team’s third collaboration with Alan Rickman, the story of birth of underground rock and the legendary New York club CBGB.
