Mark Livolsi hails from suburban Pittsburgh, where his father worked as an illustrator for the Pittsburgh Press. He studied his craft at Penn State University before setting our for New York City, where he began his career cuttig TV commercials at a local production house.
He next moved into sound editing, assisting on Mike Nichols' "Heartburn" before fatefully meeting Joe Hutshing on Oliver Stone's "Wall Street", where Hutshing worked as an assistant alongside Livolsi's role as an apprentice editor. Soon thereafter, Livolsi began establishing his cutting room skills by assisting such veterans as Susan E. Morse on four Woody Allen films.
Livolsi continued his collaboration with Hutshing on Crowe's very next project, the drama "Vanilla Sky," on which he earned his very first credit as film editor alongside his longtime mentor. He most recently reunited with Croew on "We Bought a Zoo."
Livolsi has also created a long-standing association with directors David Frankel, cutting "Marley & Me," "The Big Year," and "The Devil Wears Prada," and John Lee Hancock on "The Blind Side" and "Saving Mr. Banks." He collected three American Cinema Editors Eddie nominations, for his work on "Wedding Crashers," "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Saving Mr. Banks."
