My name is Dennis M. Miller and I have been in video production professionally for over twenty years. After spending my teens making super 8 movies with friends, and getting into video production in my 20’s, I landed a bi-weekly spot on America’s Funniest People. Every other week I wrote, produced, and edited a two-minute mini-movie they appeared on the show. From there I moved to a show for the new Sci-Fi Channel called Mysteries From Beyond the Other Dominion. It was my job to produce road segments all over the country. I would arrive at the location, talk to people involved in the story, and write a script to be shot the next day. I would then set up all the shots, perform on camera, direct, and then edit the piece to air on the show. These two to three minute segments aired weekly.
After that I spent fifteen years in the video game industry, starting off running the video department and creating promo videos for games to show at tradeshows such as E3. I also was the main dialog writer for many games in that time, as well as an audio designer on assorted projects.
I also spent time at the ABC affiliate in Bakersfield as a commercial producer where I wrote, directed, and edited commercials. For this particular job, I exclusively used Final Cut Pro. My specialty was commercials with comical flair, but I was very competent with straight forward shoots as well.
I continue to work in video production, most recently writing, directing, and editing videos for a KickStarter.com project that raised over $3,000,000.
I have been in the industry since 1991.
