Jackson Miller is a writer/director based in the LA area. As a junior in high school Jackson was randomly placed into a video production class. Within four months he was hooked and he hasn't looked back since.
In 2012 Jackson was accepted to Chapman University as one of 7 film production transfer students. Film students in their first semester at Chapman are assigned a series of six exercises. Jackson challenged himself to make six short films instead. This attitude, as well as his work, impressed faculty enough that in his second year, Jackson was chosen to write and direct a university-funded film utilizing the school’s new Xsens motion capture system.
His experience directing this VFX intensive film, Trellis, opened the door to an unexpected opportunity the following year. Jackson became the first student in the school's history to direct two thesis films, when, in addition to Guide he was asked to direct Prism, an ambitious sci-fi short with a sizable budget and over 160 VFX shots. Now completed, Prism has been honored as a semifinalist in the 42nd Annual Student Academy Awards, was featured as part of SAG's 2015 LA Shorts Showcase, and has played at numerous festivals where it has been awarded both Jury and Audience awards.
