Franklin Miller

Frank Miller
Emeritus Professor
Education: 
MFA, Ohio

Franklin Miller has been making films, videos, and television programs with over 100 major credits since 1961. His early experience was in documentary and narrative forms, including writing and producing a theatrical feature film. Since 1970, he has been working in shorter, more experimental forms that combine and layer live-action footage into collages that fall somewhere between photography and painting. He has also explored techniques in 3D modeling and animation. As a faculty member at the University of Iowa, his teaching focused on animation and cinematography/videography. His many former students populate the film-making industry. In 2009, room E105 in the Adler Journalism Building was formally designated as the "Franklin Miller Screening Room."
