Gretta Wing Miller

In the early 1990s when I had 2 small children in NYC, I operated a little cottage business (Downtown Dailies) syncing film dailies for foreign filmmakers so they could see their footage before they left town. 

I was in Madison in 1999 when Final Cut Pro was released, and at the same time I was approached by the Dept. of Public Instruction to do a series of videos. I went immediately back into business, and used the same name. (It is hard to find a person who knows what dailies are anymore, but …) 

We create documentary and advocacy video on local and regional issues for non-profits and independent artists.

Gretta Wing Miller has been a film & video editor and instructor since 1978, working mostly on documentary television series and specials (American Masters, National Geographic) and independent features. She has taught film editing at Hunter College (CUNY), Final Cut Pro tutorials, and Digital Filmmaking in the College for Kids program through the UW-Madison Education Outreach.
