Fil Eisler is an award-winning composer with projects ranging from big studio action pieces and comedies, to gritty independent films and hit television shows. His inventive scores and signature themes enliven some of TV's most popular series and notable films. He composes for Fox's Golden Globe-nominated drama series "Empire," as well as Lifetime's Peabody-winning series "UnReal," Bravo's hit comedy drama series "Girlfriends' Guide To Divorce," and Showtime's Emmy-winning "Shameless." Eisler was also both the composer and conductor for ABC's breakout hit drama "Revenge." In 2017 Eisler completed the scores for Netflix's drama "To The Bone" and Warner Bros.' hilarious film reboot of the fan-favorite series, "CHIPS." Eisler has composed music for such varied films as Sony's "Proud Mary," Netflix's sci-fi thriller "The Titan," and MGM and New Line Cinemas' People's Choice Awards-nominated "How To Be Single." Eisler also acted as composer and music director for the Peabody-winning documentary, "Newtown," for which he organized and led an all-star line-up of over a dozen Hollywood composers, who each donated a piece of music for the film. In 2008, Eisler was among a select group of up-and-coming composers invited to the Sundance Film Composer's Lab, and in the years since his projects have garnered critical acclaim on the film festival circuit and beyond. As part of his ongoing commitment to independent film, he returned to Sundance in 2011 with the Inupiaq-themed thriller "On the Ice," scored the Sundance-backed documentary "Whatever It Takes," and Jonathan van Tulleken's BAFTA-nominated horror thriller "Off Season." Eisler won the Best Film Score Award for his work on Robbie Pickering's "Natural Selection" at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival. The film was the most decorated of the festival, also winning the Grand Jury and Audience Awards. He continued his work with Pickering on the 2015 Sony feature "Freaks of Nature." Eisler, a Czech-born, English-raised composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, has worked with ensembles of all shapes and sizes to help bring his scores to life. Variety described his music as "smoky, elaborate film noir-inspired compositions", while Beatweek Magazine praised him for making "beautiful music" that "...almost acts as another character further enveloping the audience in its grasp." Eisler has been nominated and has received numerous awards including the World Soundtrack Awards New Discovery, SXSW Best Soundtrack Award and multiple BMI awards.
