Hunter Livingston (Tisch ‘19) is a Los Angeles based film director and writer with a keen interest in the fusion of horror and coming-of-age narratives. At the age of 12, his interest in filmmaking began after an illicit viewing of the gratuitously vicious, smash-hit film Final Destination (2000). He began a YouTube channel titled Get A Life Productions where he produced short-form horror stories to imitate the films he loved and one day wanted to create. The channel is still, embarrassingly, public.
His 2021 thesis Heatwave won the Audience Award for Student Short in his hometown of Charlotte at the CLT Film Festival and Best Short at the New Faces, New Voices Festival. Most recently, his film From the Flesh starring Kennedy Walsh shot this past autumn and is currently making its festival circuit. A feature adaptation is in development.
