Eric Eisner is the son of Disney magnate Michael Eisner and a producer. He currently co-owns the film production company L+E Productions.
Early life and education
Eisner started his entertainment career in sports, working for the NHL team, the Anaheim (Mighty) Ducks. There he worked in the hockey operations department and helped renegotiate both the radio and television contracts. Eisner also spent two years as a talent scout and participated in the scout table during those NHL entry drafts.
Eisner founded the popular original content site, Romp.com. The site produced original short form animations and live action shows. Eisner wrote and directed the film, Jake's Booty Call, an animated feature-length film based on a short on Romp.com and distributed by National Lampoon.
In 2006, Eisner founded L + E productions. L+E Production's production of Hamlet 2 won wide acclaim as a late entry to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah in January 2008. After the screening, an all-night bidding war took place for rights to distribution, which Focus Features won for a near-record $10 million, acquiring worldwide rights to the film. Hamlet 2 is the first Eisner film to be featured at Sundance.
In 2008, he married fashion designer Stacey Bendet on the Caribbean island of Anguilla. They have two daughters: Eloise Breckenridge Eisner (b. 2008) and Scarlet Haven Eisner (b. 2011). The family currently resides in Hancock Park, Los Angeles, California.
