Justin Johnson is a Los Angeles-based filmmaker whose first feature, Double Digits: The Story of a Neighborhood Movie Star is showing Thursday night at the Tallgrass Film Festival. Its subject is little known Wichita filmmaker Richard “R.G.” Miller, a man who's made countless films in the area since 1979, many of them starring his closest friends and many more, it seems, featuring action figures.

Double Digits is a new documentary film about a Wichita man who's been making films inside his studio apartment for some time now. KMUW's Jedd Beaudoin caught up with the man at the center of the story recently and has more.

Richard “RG” Miller has been making films since 1979. If you haven’t heard of pictures such as The Mask Man or Rio Comanche, it’s probably because Miller’s films have been poorly distributed and mostly seen by his close friends and family.
