Director Korey Miller Answers Five Questions with SCREEN

What do Prince, the Kardashians, and an apple green 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air have in common? They’re all right here as director Korey Miller of the acclaimed Quriosity Productions roster stops by for a thoroughly entertaining round of Five Questions with SCREEN. Let’s get to it!

SCREEN: If you could be a member of any musical group in history, what would it be?

KOREY: I would like to join “the High Priest of Pop,” Prince, the man who could make a guitar sing like nobody’s business, along with his band, the Revolution. These musicians were fire, and being a part of their magic would be nothing short of a dream. I envision myself in their glittery jumpsuits, high-waisted pants, stylish boots, and all the leather one could want. They were rebels, misfits, and outcasts and that’s precisely why I would have wanted to be a part of that era of music.

All right, Korey, let’s take a look at an epic live performance from this pop icon…

What is your most prized possession?

KOREY: My dad’s apple green 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. It’s not just a car, it’s a symbol of my independence as it was the car my father taught me how to drive in. I also remember spending hours tinkering with the engine, learning how it worked and feeling a sense of pride every time I turned the key in the ignition. It taught me the value of hard work, patience, and the importance of taking care of the things you love.

And here is Korey’s photo of the 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air… beautiful!

SCREEN: Your favorite commercial ever?

Volkswagen’s “The Force” ad is a timeless masterpiece because of its perfect execution and how it delivers an emotionally relevant message. The ad beautifully captures the magic of childhood and reminds us of the loving bond between parent and child. The way the little Darth Vader character tries to use “the force” on everything around him, only to finally succeed with his dad’s Volkswagen, embodies the boundless imagination of childhood. It’s a touching reminder of how the support and encouragement of our parents can make us feel like we can fly!

SCREEN: Worst job ever? 

KOREY: My worst job ever was dumpster diving for cans. At 9 years old I wanted to buy a motorcycle. My parents said, “you can have it but you gotta earn it.” They made me collect cans to recycle for an entire summer, they did however agree to match whatever I earned. I learned that bars and restaurants were a fast way to get a lot of cans, but that sometimes required retrieving them from dumpsters. Yep, I did it, and hated it, BUT I did eventually buy my blue Yamaha 125CC motorcycle… with a matching helmet!

SCREEN: Celebrity crush?  

KOREY: I am head-over-heels, completely infatuated with the brainy and beautiful Michelle Miller of CBS News. Yes, you may call me a nerd, but there’s something incredibly attractive about a woman who can uncover untold stories and educate you on unexplored topics. In my opinion, the brain is the sexiest muscle in the body. Michelle and I even share the same last name. However, I hope and pray that we are not long-lost relatives, as that would put a quick end to my crush!

Here’s a recent interview with the CBS News star…


SCREEN: If you could play any superhero in a major motion picture, who would it be? 

KOREY: I would play BLACKMAN. He’s the superhero that fights for equal rights for ALL people, Humor is his weapon and compassion is his sidekick. He’s never offensive or overbearing he just gently educates.

SCREEN: One meal, one restaurant, and we’re buying. What will it be?
KOREY: Restaurant: Le Tobsil – Morocco
Meal: Chicken Tangine – Succulent slow-cooked chicken served with lemon, wrapped in a pancake accompanied with seasonal vegetables and aromatic cous cous. 
Dessert: Moroccan crepes
Cost: Doesn’t matter… you’re buying

SCREEN: What’s that TV show you’re a little embarrassed to admit you love to watch?

KOREY: I’m a full-blown Kardashian fanatic. And you know what? I’m not even ashamed of it. These ladies are true hustlers! Take Kim, for example. She’s a one-woman wrecking ball who can break the internet with a single post. She’s a business mogul who’s figured out how to make the system work for her, and I am in awe of her sheer power and tenacity. They’ve built an empire out of social currency, using their platforms to connect with billions of people and create a brand that’s synonymous with success. So go ahead, judge me all you want. I don’t care. Because at the end of the day, I’ll still be over here, living my best Kardashian-loving life.
