ICM Partners Welcomes New Client Julian Bass
ICM Partners is pleased to sign the talented Julian Bass as a new client.
Much of Hollywood first heard Julian’s name after a TikTok video he made went viral in early July. In the 20-second video, the Georgia native showed off his impressive VFX skills as he seamlessly transformed into his favorite fictional heroes, including Jedi Knight, Ben 10, and Spider-Man. Julian then tweeted the video with a caption that was a 20 year-old college student’s dream one day, and an incredible reality the next day. “If y’all can retweet this enough times that Disney calls, that’d be greatly appreciated.”
Within 24 hours, the video had over 10 million views, over 300,000 retweets, and over 650,000 likes. The mass tagging of Julian’s video helped his VFX and performance skills receive views from actors and filmmakers across the industry, including ICM Partners’ client Matthew Cherry, and eventually Bob Iger, who replied “The world’s gonna know your name!”
“I jokingly asked for Disney and got the chairman himself,” Julian told The Hollywood Reporter. “I absolutely had no idea it’d get this big. I mean, I’ve always put 100% into the videos I make and they’re usually well received by those around me but nothing of this caliber,” he added.
Julian’s videos have built a massive following across TikTok, Snapchat, and Twitter, where he is known for making comical VFX superhero videos and editing tutorials.
“The funny thing is that performing has always truly been my focus. Most of the stuff I’ve learned over the years about filmmaking has been so that I could perform in pretty much any way I could imagine. I always wanted to be a superhero, play a superhero, and so I learned VFX and did it myself.”
We look forward to working with Julian and all of his many talents.
