Not many people fulfill their childhood dreams at their professions, but in Branden Miller’s case, being at Fox gave him the chance to work closely on the “Star Wars” Special Editions.

“I’ve been a huge fan since I was very young,” says Miller, 44.

Miller heads a lean-and-mean team of seven who cook up in-theatre marketing promos, props and materials to lure more people in. His team is especially proud of creating “The Simpsons Movie” in-theatre standee where many people posed beside a life-sized Homer on his couch.

Miller’s first job was at a charity arts org, but his heart was always in the film biz. He’s now managed to combine the two as an active member in various charities.

“Branden is an extraordinary and remarkable person,” says Fox prexy of domestic distribution Bruce Snyder, who points out that Miller has four adopted kids, confirming the maxim that charity truly begins at home.
