From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Miles Jay, is a Canadian filmmaker who directed Super Bowl commercials and was nominated for a Grammy Award for his work on Leon Bridges' "River" music video, a Director's Guild of America Nomination for Best Commercial Director in 2016 and most recently he won an Emmy for Outstanding Commercial for his work on a Squarespace advertisement with John Malkovich.

Early life

Jay (born March 13, 1989) was born in Vancouver the son of television director Michael Robison and his mother, who was a set director.[1][2] His early aspirations were to become an athlete but while still in high school he began to seriously pursue filmmaking as a career by enrolling in a TV production class and spending his downtime reading Final Cut Pro manuals.[1]


He enrolled in Ryerson University's filmmaking program where he made a short film "BLINK" which won the TIFF Student Showcase. A year later he went on to direct 2012's Carly's Cafe, an interactive film intended to help viewers relate to a young autistic girl's experience, Carly Fleischmann.[3] The film was later used by the President of Poland in a presentation to the United Nations to support the Convention of Rights of People with Disabilities.[2]

Jay went onto make a short film which won the Best Student Film at the Toronto International Film Festival and a music video that was short-listed for the Young Director award in Cannes.[1]

He went onto win numerous other awards, including Best Director & Best Film at the Air Canada Film Festival,[2] the Jury Award at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival for "The Statistical Analysis of Your Failing Relationship."[4] and a Director's Guild of America nomination for Best Commercial Directors in 2016.

Professional career

His commercial projects include spots for Budweiser, Major League Baseball and ESPN.[5] Two of his commercials for Squarespace, which starred John Malkovich, debuted in 2017 during Super Bowl LI.[6]

A seven-minute music video for Leon Bridges' "River" was nominated for the best music video Grammy Award, though it lost to Beyonce's "Formation". The music video is mostly a fictional interpretation of scenes Jay witnessed while visiting Baltimore in the aftermath of protests over the death of Freddie Gray.[7] In an interview with The Canadian Press he said, "I was much more interested in what people did when they left the riots."[7]

"River" was shot mostly with a Canadian crew, including cinematographer Chayse Irvin, who also worked on Beyonce's Grammy-nominated music film "Lemonade."[7]
