BIOGRAPHY

 

Since the age of eight, Frank had his heart set on a career in film music.  He studied piano and trombone at the renowned Jaffa Conservatorium of Music in Tel Aviv and, as a teenager, was playing lead trombone with the Tel Aviv Dixieland Band.  However, the tenacious young composer became frustrated with the structured methods of the Conservatorium and wanted to be more imaginative in how he created music, so he set out to achieve his ambition to be a film composer.

Fast forward to today, Frank has scored numerous TV dramas, documentaries and feature films including the hit black comedy horror, Big Bad Wolves, which saw him win the coveted Saturn Award for Best Original Music in 2014 ahead of John Williams, Howard Shore and Danny Elfman.

His innate ability to forensically diagnose how music can best contribute to the atmosphere of a film, coupled with his ability to create strong orchestral themes undercut with a brooding melancholy, has proved the perfect musical companion to projects in the horror and thriller genres.

Frank scored the critically acclaimed Lionsgate horror Ghost Stories directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, starring Martin Freeman and Paul Whitehouse.  Other recent credits include the original music for the Legendary Pictures Fanfare logo, the second season of the Israeli TV series Mermaids, thriller The Operative starring Diane Kruger and Martin Freeman, and drama Rory’s Way starring Brian Cox and Rosanna Arquette.

He has just completed work on the documentary feature Speer Goes To Hollywood, which is screening in competition at this years Berlinale, and is scoring the forthcoming action thriller Gunpowder Milshake, starring Karen Gillan, Angela Bassett, Lena Headey and Michelle Yeoh.
