who's will?

Mayer began directing for Vans at 14 while still in high school, traveling the world with their professional snowboarders, skaters and surfers.

He left high school early, moved into a van, and drove from New York to California.

Now based in both Los Angeles & New York, Mayer has been in post-production on a feature-length documentary. The documentary will be released this coming summer.

Other film projects include “Tangle,” released on Nowness, which documents the underground hardcore band Trash Talk’s week long tour through Japan.

Informed by his documentarian background, Mayer’s work aims to explore the human condition in an authentic and empathic manner.

Attempts to define his work might result in phrases like “high-art doc-narrative hybrid,” but ultimately, each piece he makes aims for emotion and honesty, infused with a bit of the unknown.
