Morgan Miller was born in New York City in 1977. He began making cut-paper and hinged animation as a teenager with a Super 8 camera. William Zimmer of The New York Times once described Miller's work as "mildly sinister, but ultimately has an absurd edge." Miller's most recent animated short, Farber's Nerve toured internationally with the 2006 Manhattan Short Film Festival, exhibited at 137 screenings across the US, Canada, and Europe. Morgan received a Finishing Funds 2007 award from the Experimental Television Center.
