Meet Oana Miller, an art director and production designer who is a master of film styles and the creator of special effects creatures and fantasy beasts.

Meet Oana Miller, an art director and production designer who is a master of film styles that range from period and  contemporary to the realms of fantasy and futuristic. As an art director, Oana contributed to many projects, including “Hawaii 5-0,” “Four Christmases,” “Criminal Minds,” “Cold Case,” “Without a Trace,” “24,” and “Vanilla Sky.” Her creativity didn’t stop there. Oana’s blockbuster design skills led her to develop special effects creatures and fantasy beasts for blockbuster films “Stuart Little,” “I, Robot,” “Godzilla,” “Independence Day,” and “Total Recall.” In addition to her extensive film and television career, Oana conceptualized, planned, and created the fine art studio PAINT:LAB to encourage people of all ages to express their creativity through paint on canvas. As an advocate for her craft, Oana served as the Treasurer for the Art Directors Guild, IATSE Local 800. We are thrilled to be the financial partner of such an incredible talent. Meet Oana in our new Member Stories spotlight!

How does First Entertainment benefit you as a creator of entertainment? 

“I joined First Entertainment in 1999 when a film project took me out of town, and I needed a banking solution that would accept direct deposit for my payroll checks. I’ve never looked back. First Entertainment has been a fantastic bank for me throughout the years, and their relationship with the entertainment industry payroll companies has proven invaluable. It is also very beneficial that they are part of a larger credit union network, which allows for easy banking from any part of the country.”

How would you compare your experiences with First Entertainment with other financial institutions that you have banked with?

“First Entertainment has a much more personal feel than other big brand financial institutions and gives more attention to my individual needs. Their online banking rivals any of the larger institutions.”

What has your experience been like using our digital banking? 

“Online banking is superb. It has all the functions and features you could want, including transfers, bill pay, report generating, and up-to-the-minute balances on all your accounts.”
