Revenge of the Nerds: Ironbound Films

Miller’s move to the Hudson Valley was decided when his wife became director of Putnam County Historical Society. It made sense, since Kramer lives in Red Hook and Newberger in Yorktown Heights. Inspiring scenery notwithstanding, Miller admits that working far from Manhattan can be a disadvantage. Therefore, Ironbound maintains an official policy: One of the men must venture into New York every week for a business lunch, thereby staying connected to colleagues and competitors.

After nearly two decades making documentaries, Daniel A. Miller says he remains unsure about how to measure his success.

“At this very moment I think professional success is an Academy Award or getting into Cannes,” he says. “But I used to think professional success was getting into Sundance. My wife tells me I’ll never be happy. Maybe she’s right.”

The Linguists is available free of charge at www.Babelgum.com.
