1982 The Man from Snowy River

George Trumbull Miller (born 1943) is a Scottish-born Australian film and television director and producer. He has directed The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter, Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Man from Snowy River, Prey and Zeus and Roxanne.

He started his career in 1966 working for Crawfords. "They trained you to do everything, they'd throw you in at the deep end to see if you sank or swam," he said. "I was one of the ones who swam – you wouldn't get that training anywhere now."[1]

Miller says he was offered to direct Crocodile Dundee but had to turn it down because he was going to make another film at the time, which turned out to not be made.[1]
