There are SO many talented people out there that we just haven't discovered yet. They're producing content on social media - like Instagram, Twitter and now, TikTok. But sometimes it just takes getting to the right time and moment for people to recognize their talent.
For Julian Bass, that moment is now!
The college student at Georgia State University posted an INCREDIBLY well done visual effects video that has since gone viral - and gotten the attention from some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Julian put together clips of himself as a Jedi Knight from the Star Wars universe, Ben 10 from Cartoon Network’s longest-running franchise and Marvel’s Spider-Man. The result is so incredible, you need to watch it.
Ironically, when Julian posted the video on Twitter he wrote, "if y’all can retweet this enough times that Disney calls, that’d be greatly appreciated" - and that's exactly what happened.
Check out the amazing video here:
Disney’s executive chairman and board of directors chair, Bob Iger, did indeed see the video and posted: “The world’s gonna know your name!!!”
Other Disney family members took note of the incredible video, as well. Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, and Josh Gad, who voices Olaf in the Frozen films, both shared their own love for the video in the responses to Julian's tweet.
Julian is only 20 years old, but being a theater major in school is definitely paying off for him. Other Hollywood big names who have seen the video include Oscar-winner Matthew Cherry, Guardians of the Galaxy's James Gunn, and Ben 10 voice actor Tara Strong.
Julian spoke with a reporter from The Hollywood Reporter over direct message last week, saying, "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."
I cannot wait to see what Julian does now that the world knows his name!! Leave me a Yap below and let me know what YOU would want him to do VFX with next! Maybe he'll see them and try something out.
