Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger

The Filmmakers

Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger make up Ironbound Films. It was founded in 2003, the same year they began work on The Linguists.

Ironbound Films is currently producing and directing the feature documentary The New Recruits, funded by PBS through a grant from the Skoll Foundation. It shadows a hip group of business-school grads testing a new customer base: the world's poor. 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 is 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. Arizona Republic said the show "neither exploits the tragedy... nor allows us to forget its impact." America Rebuilds II: Return to Ground Zero, narrated by two-time Emmy Award-winner Mariska Hargitay, premiered September 2006 for the five-year anniversary.

Seth was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Historical Programming for Resistance: Untold Stories of Jewish Partisans (PBS, 2002). Daniel was nominated for The Trial of Adolf Eichmann (PBS, 1997).

Seth and Daniel produced and wrote the four-part PBS series Great Projects: The Building of America (2002). "As with all the best documentaries," reported the Associated Press, "Great Projects is rich in historical sights and sounds [and] filled with intriguing interviews." Daniel produced, wrote, and directed Crucible of Empire: The Spanish-American War (PBS, 1999). CBS News Sunday Morning's John Leonard called it "a first-rate and emphatically opinionated public-television documentary."

Jeremy Newberger innovated some of the Web's first video content, transforming the "webisode" into an indispensable tool for both businesses and advertisers. Jeremy is co-creator, executive producer, and writer of The Fantastic Two, a serial web comedy starring William "The Refrigerator" Perry, sponsored by McDonalds and Honda.

Jeremy produced MSNBC's Internet technology correspondent Lisa Napoli, now a reporter for NPR's Marketplace.org. Lisa's reports were featured on The News with Brian Williams and other NBC programs. Jeremy saw his fifteen minutes of cult celebrity as a producer and sometime on-air contributor to the Imus in the Morning television program on MSNBC. He was profiled in Jim Reed's fan book Everything Imus.

Jeremy is a Great Dane (SUNY Albany, 1995); Daniel a Brunonian (Brown University, 1994.5) and Seth an Artvark (University of the Arts in Philadelphia, 1996). They are all dads: of Samson and Annabelle, Sander and Asa, and Lillian, respectively. They live within play-date proximity in the Hudson Valley, New York.
