Mike Pelak

Mike Pelak is a screenwriter and filmmaker who wrote, directed, and produced WHAT HAVE YOU DONE, and is the founder of Black Oil Films. Mike's first short film, THE DELIVERYMAN also screened in film festivals and had several award nominations.

Mike is a passionate storyteller, a punk rocker, an X-FILES fanatic, and often incorporates themes of people and characters not always being what they seem. Whether they are wolves in sheep’s clothing, or simply hiding in plain sight, his characters always have many layers, and often surprising backstories.

Mike is also an Army veteran and alumnus of the Veterans Writing Project mentorship program with the Writers Guild of America.

Mike's original one-hour drama pilot TOP OF THE HILL was recently recognized as an Austin Film Festival Second Round selection, and a semifinalist in the Final Draft Big Break Competition.
