Believing that motion pictures harbor  magnificent influence for positive change, Carl Miller obtained a BS in film production from SDSU. 

With a degree in hand, he returned to the San Francisco Bay Area to work for George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic. There, he “cut his teeth” in the industry for 20 years on more than 35 major motion pictures, and quickly grew into a position as a Visual Effects Director of Photography. 

Concurrently, he independently created a 90-minute video about SCUBA diving in Monterey. 

Carl was the Creative & Director for the half million dollar DLP Cinema trailer, “Birth of an Image,” which played in theaters all over the world. 

With an ongoing desire to tell cinematic stories, Carl began his personal dramatic filmmaking career with the motion picture RETALIATION, which played at prestigious film festivals. 

Carl was also the Cinematographer who reshot 50% of

George Lucas’ film RED TAILS. 

Halfway into his career, Carl continues to innovate the potentials of film, TV, and video.
