Mayo Whaley

Writer/Director
Austin, TX
Mayo Whaley hails from Austin, TX and Oracle is his directorial debut. Mayo received a Radio-TV-Film degree from Texas Christian University. After graduation and a short stint in radio, he found himself selling television advertising in a small Southeast Texas town. Soon after getting married, he and his new wife packed up and moved to Santa Fe, NM for a fresh start and new perspective. It was there that the idea for Oracle was born. Mayo met his future writing partner, John Dowaliby and they began to plot their first story together. Neither had ever written a screenplay before. Mayo split his time managing a small bakery and a one-man video operation making promotional material for art galleries, all this while writing and developing Oracle. The script went on to reach the semifinal round of the 2014 BlueCat Screenplay Competition, one of the top competitions of its kind in the country. Mayo's second short film is currently in development.
