Respect The Process is a filmmaking podcast focused on directing commercials.

Jun 30, 2023

Filmmaker Tamika Miller is an episodic, award-winning commercial and film director/writer.  She's directed the NBC television drama QUANTUM LEAP, THE EQUALIZER for CBS and STATION 19 for ABC/Shondaland. We chat about her indie feature HONOR STUDENT, a thriller starring Emmy-Nominated actress Kelly Jenrette (All American: Homecoming, The Handmaid's Tale) and actor Hudson Yang (Fresh Off the Boat).

My wife and I loved "Honor Student" at the Pan African Film Festival and Tamika has been tearing up the festvial ciurcuit ever since. This chat is a masterclass on making your indie film by serving the storytelling with creativity and craft. Watch the trailer here.

45 minutes in, we chat about diversity, all the initiatives and their worth. It's eye opening and love Tamika's candor and perspective.

She is currently in pre-production for her much-anticipated feature film UNDERCARD, starring actress/comedienne Wanda Sykes in her first dramatic role. On the commercial front, SHOOT Magazine chose Tamika as a 'Director to Watch,' and presented her work at the Directors Guild of America in New York.
