Mike Ambs

Bio / CV


I was born in Jackson, Michigan, on November 11th, 1981.

I’m a self-taught filmmaker, having recently released my 1st feature-length documentary, For Thousands of Miles, a story originally inspired by my own 4,200 mile cross-country bicycle trip.

By day I help create stories for companies including Viceland, Maker, Go90, NBC, MRC, Vimeo, and Disney. Recently, I co-wrote and co-directed the stop-motion short film, Blank a Vinylmation Love Story, partnering with Google for a special first-of-its-kind Valentine's premiere.

I currently live just east of Detroit with my beautiful and immensely talented wife, Erica Hampton.
