"Sometimes Credited as:"
 
I'm about to get my first (formal) screen credit; 2nd unit camera operator. Not as big a deal as it sounds, but to me, it is :)
As you can see, I have a pretty common name and was thinking of being credited as a variation of that so I can be told apart from the hundreds of 'Jeff Miller's out there. I was thinking of 'Jef Miller'; that's a somewhat rare name yet looks/sounds the same. Other stuff like my full name or adding my middle name seem too uptight. I also like the short "Jeffm". I came up with other stuff but don't feel like trying to be artsy or funny.
Is there anything to think about in doing this? I guess I worry about it but the decision will follow me around for a while, heh. Thanks!

Jeff, make your mama proud, use your middle name! It'll also be easier to fend of your friends laughter in five or ten years if you stay away fom nick-names and embrace "Horatio" or "Eugene" or whatever your middle name is, so that watching the titles is still fun with friends.

Thanks Patrick
Of course there are buckets of "Bryan Miller"s as well... doh.

unless i misunderstood, i think patrick meant to use your full name, as in jeffrey bryan miller. adds a little distinction, a little gravitas....

Jeff Miller August 23rd, 2005 02:26 PM

Oh, oh yeah. lol
I thought about that, seems a bit pompous for me (after all, I'm no Catherine Zeta Jones or John Paul Tremblay) but an idea anyway... thanks :)

Jeff, you might become Jeff Bryan Miller! I mean she probably started as Cathy Jones until her agent got hold of her.

Jeff B. Miller sounds good to me...

Jeff Zeta Jones, perhaps?
