Wondros Collective’s Executive Producer Danielle Peretz continues to expand the commercial/branded content division’s Directorial roster with the signing of Director Tamika Miller this summer. A multi-faceted filmmaker, Miller was selected as one of six directors for the prestigious DGA/AICP’s Commercial Directors Diversity Program — an initiative created to increase the representation of women and under-represented Directors in commercial advertising.
Miller was also selected by SHOOT Magazine as a Director to watch during its 2019 “New Director Showcase,” whereby Tamika’s work was presented at the Directors Guild of America (DGA) in New York.
Director Tamika Miller is a Los Angeles-based commercial and film Director who began her career as a Line Producer for high-profile music videos and television commercials including major brands such as Bank of America, Target, Verizon, Toyota, American Express and Old Navy.
Upcoming in 2020, Tamika is slated to direct the television film The Christmas Lottery for MarVista Entertainment. Additionally, Tamika was recently selected by the arts organization Motionpoems — the world’s leading producer of poetry films — to direct a short film inspired by American poet, novelist and activist Marge Piercy’s poem “To be of use.”
An advocate for storytelling where women and people of color are at the center, Tamika co-founded Black Films Travel — a conscious initiative that dispels the myth that Black films don’t make money overseas. In 2021, Black Films Travel will launch its inaugural short-film competition focused on stories about the African-American and/or African Diaspora experience, whereby two filmmakers will each be awarded a film grant to produce their short films.
