We will be sure to post the entire video when director Robert Rodriguez sits down with fellow filmmaker George Miller for an hour-long conversation about Miller's stunning career as director, writer and producer of some of modern cinema's most beloved and iconic films. Together, they trace the Australian-born director's journey from practicing medical physician to creator of the visionary "Mad Max" series, which includes "Mad Max" (1979), "Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior" (1981), "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" (1985), and this year's critically acclaimed, global box office hit "Mad Max: Fury Road," starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

The two also discuss in revealing detail Miller's successful transition into dramatic filmmaking with the Academy Award®-nominated medical drama "Lorenzo's Oil" (1992), starring Susan Sarandon and Nick Nolte, which was greatly influenced by his medical training, the making of the supernatural comedy hit "The Witches of Eastwick," (1987)starring Jack Nicholson, Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer; the creation of the much-loved live-action/CGI family film "Babe" (1995) and its sequel, "Babe: Pig in the City" (1998); and Miller's triumphant foray into fully-CGI animated films with "Happy Feet" (2006) which won an Academy Award® in 2008 for Best Animated Feature.
