Gary Miller

Special Guests

ICT Comic Con and Science Fiction Expo is pleased to welcome Gary Miller as a featured guest for our Year 4.0 event! Actor, Make – up artist, special effects master and monster maker! Gary Miller, born in Kansas City, MO and raised in Wichita, KS, remembers having a love for monsters as early as three years old. At age 17, Miller was working in a video rental store when he met Leif Jonker. Jonker gave him the opportunity to create a variety of gory make-ups and creatures for the film Leif Jonker’s Darkness. Miller was also asked to take on a leading role, acting in the film. This is something he had dreamed of, following in the footsteps of one of his childhood heroes, Tom Savini. Leif Jonker’s Darkness took several years of work for both Jonker and Miller, but was eventually completed and has been released worldwide on VHS and DVD. Miller has received much praise from horror fans over the years for his grotesque contributions to the film. In the years since, Miller has collaborated with Jonker on several projects, including the trailers for Demon Machine and Skull Full. He has also supplied make-up and special effects for four films (Fearsome, 20 Funerals, Dinner-No Movie, and The Mark) and an episode of One Tree Hill, while living in North Carolina between 2003 and 2004. Once Miller moved back to Wichita, KS he would begin working with Jonker on Leif Jonker’s Darkness all over again, aiding in the creation of a special edition, two-disc DVD.
