Lights! Camera! Action! Production is now underway for a new documentary film MR. OCEAN LINER about the life and times of Maritime Historian, lecturer and author of over 70 amazing books about ships. Bill Miller grew up in Hoboken, New Jersey where he could watch the Grand Liners across the Hudson River. A teacher for many years, Bill has fulfilled a lifelong dream through his publications and talks, powered by a deep passion for ships and travel. His books are world famous and he is one of the foremost experts in his field.
It was an amazing honor to be asked by Bill if I would film the story of his life. Bill had seen my previous documentary tribute THREE QUEENS - AN INTERNATIONAL RENDEZVOUS www.3QueensDVD.com and, impressed by the personal touch, thought we would be a good match. This teamwork has set us both on an adventure that has already included a roundtrip sojourn across the Atlantic, a grand fete at a manor house in the English countryside, and sensational interviews from personal friends to the Executive Director of the South Street Seaport Museum in New York, to Commodore Bernard Warner in command of the Queen Mary 2, Captain Ian McNaught at the helm of Queen Victoria (also the final Captain to steer the Queen Elizabeth 2 on her final voyage to Dubai) and many more special folks who have known and loved Bill for so many years!
In addition to great photographs from Bill's personal collection, the final production will include insightful commentary and a look at one man's journey from Hoboken across the Seven Seas!
Please check back from time to time for updates about the production, behind the scenes stories as well as guest postings from the man of the hour himself, Mr. Bill Miller!
