Working Title: David Livingstone

The first movie Livingstone helped to market for Working Title was “Romeo Is Bleeding” in 1993, one of WT’s most forgettable flops.

Prexy of worldwide marketing’s coming of age was “Four Weddings and a Funeral” in 1994, which he prefers to regard as his true WT debut. It was the first campaign he shaped from its earliest development until the movie exploded into theaters and changed the company’s destiny.

Livingstone has never been a corporate animal. His satisfaction comes from close collaboration with the filmmakers to handcraft campaigns for WT’s eclectic output.

“My involvement is as a bridge,” he says of WT’s relationship with Universal, “being heard and feeling that when decisions are made, we are part of those decisions.”

Age: 42

Home: Notting Hill (but moving to rural Hertfordshire)

Fave Working Title movie: “Dead Man Walking.”

Downtime: “Classic cars — I’ve got a Karmann Ghia.”

Least favorite thing about the biz: “Piracy. It just spoils everything, and you make bad decisions because of it.”
