Wil Masisak

My film career spans 4 decades as a Production Sound Mixer, Writer/Director, and Editor on over 60 films and TV shows, as well as work in front of the camera.

My career as a performer has covered ground from acting on stage and screen to a rock star's life in small punk rock bars, lavish opera houses, hockey stadiums, & European dance parties.

My work as a award-winning recording engineer, music producer, and studio owner includes multiple recordings for legendary American songwriter Dan Bern (including New American Language, voted Top 10 record of 2001 by several outlets), indie-rockers Devotchka, seminal work for singer-songwriters Marie Beer & Danya River, and American Idol Season 2 finalist Samantha Cohen.

A multiple Scholastic Press and multiple Downbeat magazine deebee Award-winning composer and performer, as well as a former Conducting Apprentice to the Pittsburgh Symphony, my music has been featured in multiple films, including Ed & Lulu and My Favorite Movie and heard in film trailers around the world.

As a writer/Director, my short films have included The Climber's Mind, My First Toy Company (official selection and award finalist, TriggerStreet Film Festival), Juggling: an Introduction to the Filmmaker, Head Diva: Good Head Hunting, and avant garde short Flat Tiger.

Currently, I am finalizing plans for production of my first feature film, Coming Clean, as well as working on the continuing development of the feature The Complete Guide To Iceland and two original TV series.
