While earning her Southeastern University film degree, Professor Miller attended the Los Angeles Film Studies Center (LAFSC) program. While there, she was selected as the only female director that semester. She interned at Terri Taylor Casting, aiding with the casting of four feature films as well as assisting in a casting session with director Spike Lee.
At FSU, Professor Miller served as a Graduate Assistant and was elected, by her peers, as the Head of Thesis Casting. Her master thesis film, “Death at Dinner,” as well as her other short film, “Dad in a Box,” are currently being shown in the festival circuit. She is presently in pre-production for her feature-film directorial debut.
Overjoyed to return to her alma mater, Professor Miller is excited to equip her students with the knowledge and skills they need to go out and create society-shaking art for the glory of God. At Southeastern University, she teaches Intro to Film Production, Film Appreciation, Cinematography, Edit for Story, and Film Practicum.
