George Miller

Tom Burlinson


I’m very sorry to learn of the passing of George Miller, who directed ‘The Man from Snowy River’. George was very supportive of and helpful to me during the preparation and shooting of the film. I learnt a great deal from him about acting for the camera.

As a first time feature director on ‘Snowy’ he was at times under a great deal of pressure, but he once made a promise to me that the movie was called ‘The Man from Snowy River’ and that’s what it was going to be about. He kept that promise and his vision was wonderfully well realised. The movie is still so much loved.

Before the shoot we spent some hours together in the high country in preparation for this iconic photo he shot with his still camera during “magic hour”.

I’ll always be grateful to George for his fine work in the movie that changed my life.

RIP dear George.

I am interested in writing short stories for my pleasure and my family's but although I have published four family books I will not go down that path again but still want what I write out there so I will see how this goes
