Michael Downing started directing as a small child, when he used to tell his friends what game they were going to play and how it would end. He later studied acting and started his own small theatre company. He graduated from the American Film Institute and won a student Academy Award for his graduating short film, entitled Fine. His first American commercial was a Bud Light Super Bowl spot entitled Skydiver, which is still one of the most popular Super Bowl spots ever.
