Concepts TV welcomes award-winning Steven T. Miller as our new Motion Graphics Designer and Video Editor.¬† Miller joins Concepts with 10 years of experience in motion graphics and non-linear editing. He has worked with many high profile clients, including Ford Motors, Home Depot, A&E Network, Discovery Communications, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and Turner Broadcasting.¬† The winner of five Graphic Design USA Awards in 2013, he is incredibly talented and we are delighted to have him on board. We are also very nosy, so I sat down with Steve to get the inside scoop on our newest addition. Here’s the lowdown‚Ä¶
ML: Hi Steve, mind if we start off with some basics?
SM: Not at all.
ML: What’s your favorite color?
SM: Pizza. But, I guess that’s everyone’s favorite.
ML: Mmm, works for me. Favorite saying?
SM: The grass is always greener. My dad used to say, ‚“No one smiles in mud town.” Still trying to figure that one out‚Ä¶
ML: My dad used to say, ‚“Keep your head on straight”, because I stress out a lot.
SM: Me too. But then you get to a point where you just have to let it go.
ML (laugh): True. Okay, favorite TV show?
SM: The Blacklist.
ML: Favorite season?
SM: Fall. I could live in a hoodie.
ML: I love hoodies. They’re so comfortable. But, if you were stranded on a desert island, you probably wouldn’t need a hoodie. So what three things would you take with you instead?
SM: Cell phone, computer, cheese steak.
ML (laugh): Cheese steak?
ML: If you weren’t an editor, what would you be?
SM: A creative director. That’s my dream job.
ML: Interesting. So your alternate job is your dream job?
ML: Then how did you end up editing?
SM: I used to watch a lot of Anime and when I heard they were going to make them into live action movies, I started studying film.
ML: What’s your favorite part of the editing process?
SM: When you make someone’s vision possible and they get that look on their face, like that’s exactly how I imagined it.
ML: What’s the biggest highlight of your career so far (other than working with me)?
SM: Working on a web video for Turner Broadcasting.
ML: That’s pretty cool. Is that your proudest accomplishment?
ML: What’s your proudest accomplishment?
SM: My son, Milo.
ML: Awh. How old is he?
ML: Name one thing you and your son have in common.
SM: Freakishly long eyelashes.
ML (laugh): My son does, too! It’s like someone glued centipedes to his eyelids. So what do you guys do for fun?
SM: Play video games.
ML: What else do you do in your spare time?
SM: Study animation and cook. I like to cook.
ML: Do you have a specialty dish that you make?
SM: I make this meat sauce over noodles. Ever hear of Pastitsio? It’s kind of like a Greek sloppy joe or a Greek lasagna.
ML: So if someone comes over your house, do they say, ‚“You better make that meat sauce”?
ML: Can you make some and bring it to work?
SM: No, Kristy is a vegetarian. She couldn’t eat it.
ML: If I check Kristy’s schedule and see what day she isn’t here, can you make some and bring it to work?
