From the North Alabama foothills of the Appalachians, Milford made scores of short and feature-length super-8 films as an adolescent and was mentored by award-winning filmmaker Will Hindle (of the “3rd avant garde") during high school. He studied Mass Comm with a focus on film and theatre at the University of Montevallo, Alabama, then attended Shibusawa International School in Saitama, Japan to study Japanese culture and language. After a stint as an English teacher in Japan, he worked between Atlanta and Tokyo as a production coordinator for Fuji television. Thomas later settled in Atlanta to make his own films. He received a 2006 Annenberg Fellowship and was a 2006 Sundance Institute Writer and Director’s Lab Fellow. He has several new feature film projects "on the cooker," and most recently created a hand-tinted super-8 short for CG Creative and the winning installation at Museum of Design Atlanta's "The South's Next Wave."
