Jed Root has made a groundbreaking move by signing on new media make up sensation Michelle Phan (Yellow Power/Viet Power!!!) -
Here's a capsule of the original posting -
As part of our never-ending quest to push the limits of this business & explore new horizons, we are very pleased to welcome Michelle Phan!
The term “Internet Sensation” may be overused nowadays, but makeup artist Michelle Phan would certainly qualify to be called as such.
A few simple makeup tutorials filmed from the comfort of her home has lead to Michelle becoming one of the first and most successful online celebrities in the world of beauty.
Her videos have been viewed over 50 million times worldwide and she is the most highly subscribed “Make Up Guru” (over 300,000 subscribers!) on Youtube. Her creative looks and methods have been inspirational and easy to learn – over 8 million people have viewed on her video on how to recreate Lady Gaga’s look alone.
In 2009 Michelle even launched her own line of skincare products to great reviews – IQQU Beauty.
We are so happy to welcome Michelle to the agency and to blur the lines even further between all types of media.

I wanted to also post three comments, in sequential order, the last being my comment related to the same thread....

I'm back, sorry, it's been a bit crazy this past year. But I'm back, now as THE 37 year old intern, for @rt P@rtner. I've been upTOWN and downTOWN, now some where in couch-surfing limbo. Loving life, even though it's a top ramen kind of life...Will start posting regularly, so stay tuned...

I was introduced to any of the agents except for one, which was a bit weird. Everywhere I've worked, interns were always introduced to the agents. The art department guys were nice. The other intern was a sweet girl from Germany. Sweet but clueless. She pronounces Michel Comte as Michel COMTAY. I didn't have the heart to correct her.
I had a great lunch with her, she shared with me her dream to become a music photographer, to go on tour with a band one day. I'll share more about that soon when I'm not so tired.
She has been interning there for 3 months already, and she hasn't been given any responsibilities other than filing, updating, messenger calls, etc. She was told today that she would be doing some "retouching" next week, as bonus responsibilities.....Hmmmm.
Funny things that went down today -
An agent was made a remark about a 40 year old intern of his - I thought it was funny. Wondered what he would think and say about me, the 37 year old intern.
Wondering how much experience these people in the office have, curious whether anyone had worked their way up to a position of an agent.
Are they just used to a constant stream of interns, so there's no personalization.
I'm back at W.S. tomorrow, I think they want me to work Tuesday and Wednesdays. Note to self, bring lots of tissues, clorox cleansing wipes, and hand sanitizer. Can you say super dusty, especially going through those files in the back room.
I will start my first day as an intern at M.A. on Friday, and also have interviews tomorrow with A.P. and R.B. on Thursday. I think I want to wind up at a place that will challenge me and let me use all my talents rather than just filing and updating....But it's great to be able to get the behind the scenes fly on the wall perspective.
