Michael Miller

I combine theoretical and anecdotal readings, film clips which we analyze in class, lively discussions and hands-on editing – often all in the same class.

I train students to respond to material they edit as though they were first time viewers even when they’ve seen it and worked on it dozens of times – and to respond with their heart and soul as well as analytically.
