Mouse taps Miller global ops prexy

Exec launched Disney's library into 20-plus lingos

Jeffrey Miller, a 21-year Disney veteran, has been promoted to president of worldwide post-production and operations for the Walt Disney Studios.

Miller will continue to lead post-production, mastering and physical delivery of all live-action and animated theatrical releases and DVDs in more than 60 countries, reporting to Dick Cook, chair of Walt Disney Studios.

“Over the past three years, Jeff has been invaluable in building our studio’s post-production and operations infrastructure while incorporating our worldwide delivery needs into our filmmaking process,” Cook said.

Miller will support studio post and operations, technical services and organizational management and strategies as well as overseeing asset preservation, restoration and security. He’ll also manage vendor strategy and negotiations for post, technical and dubbing, and continue to oversee quality assurance across the studio.

Miller aided Disney’s day-and-date worldwide releases of pics and video product. The studio was the first to release a theatrical feature — “The Lion King” — day and date in eight languages.

As a key architect of Disney Character Voices Intl. in the 1990s, Miller launched Mouse’s library into more than 20 languages.

He also initiated the casting of local star talent to raise the profile of international feature animation dubs and localized foreign-lingo versions of pics using top international recording artists.

Miller has had an integral role in readying Disney titles for DVD and future technologies, having implemented the studio’s library restoration and preservation program for such classic animated titles as “Snow White,” “Sleeping Beauty” and the upcoming DVD release of “Bambi.”
