In 1993, Miller was nominated for CableACE Awards for his writing and direction of a short children's musical entitled Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing and Charm School (later remade as a feature film with the same title). In 2000, he was nominated for a Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing – Children's Programs for the Wonderful World of Disney episode "H-E Double Hockey Sticks". He then directed a number of independent films, including his self-distributed 2008 film Bottle Shock which premiered at the Sundance Film festival in 2008. His previous film Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing and Charm School premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005; Nobel Son premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2007 and CBGB in 2013.
In 2014, while he was directing the film Midnight Rider, a member of the film crew was killed during the filming of a scene. A police investigation found that Miller had misled the crew into trespassing on an operating railway line; second camera assistant Sarah Jones was killed by a train and several others injured. Miller ultimately pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for his role in the death, serving a year in prison. He is the first director to go to jail for causing the death of a cast or crew member during filming. As part of his plea agreement he is prohibited from working as a director or assistant director or in any supervisory role that includes safety responsibility of a film production.
