Today’s guest is one of three directors for the spec Everlast commercial “Greatness is Within.” His name is Miller Mobley (pronounced MOB-lee. I pronounced it incorrectly in the interview). Miller is a commercial photographer by trade. He’s dabbled in some video work, but as he puts it, this was the first piece he’s done that he’s proud to show people. And you can see why. It looks amazing! Due in no small part to the amazing collaboration of his co-directors Henry Busby and Marcus Tortorici, not to mention the amazing cinematography skills of Khalid Mohtaseb of Variable (also a past guest on this show). Today Miller talks about how he got into video production, the process of creating this spec commercial with Variable, the importance and strategy of personal work, and some of the top lessons he learned while making this. Be sure to stay ’til the end to hear his Quentin Tarantino story. You won’t want to miss it!
