Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger of Ironbound Films are the producers and directors of The New Recruits. They create documentaries in Garrison, New York, in an old inn across the Hudson River from West Point Military Academy. They are currently working on Évocateur, a feature film on the life and times of talk show icon Morton Downey, Jr.

Ironbound’s last documentary The Linguists is the world’s first look at how languages become endangered, and how scientists document, archive, and help return them to use. The first film funded by the National Science Foundation ever to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival (“The talk of the town at Sundance,” proclaimed Reuters), The Linguists went on to win top honors at hundreds of film festivals around the world; enjoy a gala premier at the Paris headquarters of UNESCO; and air on PBS and several foreign networks.

Ironbound’s recent work includes Moment in Time, a short documentary which premiered as the centerpiece to ESPN’s Olympic coverage; and a 50-foot video wall for the new Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, anchored on Manhattan’s West Side. Ironbound was also the moving image consultant for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

Seth Kramer and Daniel A. Miller have been producing, writing, and directing award-winning documentaries together for more than a decade. Their America Rebuilds series for PBS investigates the engineering, business, and politics of reconstruction at the World Trade Center site. Narrated by two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey, America Rebuilds: A Year at Ground Zero premiered September 2002 as PBS’s signature broadcast of its 9/11-anniversary programming. America Rebuilds II: Return to Ground Zero, narrated by two-time Emmy Award winner Mariska Hargitay, premiered September 2006 for the five-year anniversary.
