Bob Miller is a film director and photographer with roots in the American South. As a visual storyteller specializing in non-fiction, he regularly provides regional coverage of contemporary social issues for clients such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and others. Bob’s transition to filmmaking began in 2011 while working as a Carnegie-Knight fellow in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, and his 2014 documentary Strong Enough To Fight received international broadcast distribution after screening in the European Independent Film Festival and The United Nations Independent Film Festival, among others. In additional to editorial and nonprofit work, Bob also works regularly with corporate and commercial clients who have a desire to leverage authentic storytelling. It is his conviction that a good story transcends barriers, and pushes us beyond our own experience into the reality that we are all characters living similar narratives, facing like challenges.
