Power Producers

Queenstown-born film producer Tim Bevan (right) features in Vanity Fair‘s annual ‘New Establishment’ power rankings, along with business partner Eric Fellner. Bevan and Fellner founded British film powerhouse Working Title in 1984. Their company has produced nearly every hit British film since the late 1980s, from Four Weddings and a Funeral and Elizabeth, to Love Actually and Shaun of the Dead. Bevan and Fellner are ranked 75th on the 100-strong list, which is topped this year by Rupert Murdoch (News Corporation), Steve Jobs (Apple, Disney, Pixar), and Sergey Brin and Larry Page (Google).
