We are so excited to welcome Chad Miller to BFF2017 and to Boise. 

Chad Miller is the Founder of Cinema Machine Management, a consulting company focused on advising independent filmmakers on navigating the world of development, distribution and marketing. 

He has worked in the business of entertainment for more than 15 years. 

Chad started his career as a Story Analyst at the United Talent Agency and quickly moved through several production companies before joining AT&T on the team that developed their flagship product U-verse Television. 

For six years Chad helped build the AT&T U-verse video-on-demand division from a tiny test base of 32k around their headquarters in Texas to more than 3.5 million monthly subscribers across the USA.  [Side note: recently AT&T acquired DirecTV and their subscriber base is now more than 25 million.] 

In January of 2011 one of Inc Magazine’s Fastest Growing companies, Gravitas Ventures, hired Chad to join their team to lead their acquisitions and sales efforts. Over the next 5 years, Gravitas Ventures was twice more listed on the Inc Magazine’s 500 Fastest Growing companies and became one of the largest distributors of feature films in the USA. Since departing Gravitas Ventures, Chad’s focus has been on building the clients for Cinema Machine Management, which now have included ITVS, BitMax, Comedy Dynamics, and his former employer, Gravitas Ventures, in addition to many independent filmmakers.

This is Chad’s first visit to Boise, Idaho and he looks forward to meeting the community of talent and fans here.

Please join Chad during the "Disrupting Distribution" break-out session with Michael Tetro from Synimatica on Saturday, Sept 23 at 12:30 PM in the JUMP's Inspire Studio. No ticket necessary!
