ABOUT FIL EISLER
Fil Eisler is one of the most diverse composers of the moment, with projects that range from big studio action pieces and comedies, to gripping dramas for independent film and hit television shows. For the “Newton” documentary, he served as the composer for the main title theme and acted as music director for the documentary, assembling an all-star line up of over a dozen Hollywood composers, who each donated a piece of music for the film.
