'Tis the season for outlets
YouTube star Natalie Alzate has signed with UTA and Brillstein. Her beauty, fashion and lifestyle advice channel Natalies Outlet has more than 4.9 million subscribers and 651 million total views and earlier this year spawned the Spanish-language channel Natalies Outlet Dos, which already has more than 31 million views.
The younger one
CAA has signed Disney Channel star Peyton List (not to be confused with the Mad Men and Frequency alum of the same name). Since 2011 she has played the character Emma Ross, first on the network’s Jessie and now on spinoff Bunk’d. List will soon be seen on the big screen in MGM’s Valley Girl remake, Sepia Films’ adaptation of the novel Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet and teen drama Departures. She starred opposite Logan Paul in last year’s YouTube Red dystopian thriller The Thinning and will return for its sequel, The Thinning: New World Order.
Paramount vp worldwide creative content Marcus Perry has signed with global production company We Fly Coach. He directed and co-wrote Arrival: Common Ground, a promotional video for Paramount’s Arrival that won a Grand Clio earlier this year. Perry has also directed spots for 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Walt Disney Studios, Universal, Sony, A&E, McDonald’s and Zappos.
“I’ve been fortunate to work in film for a long time, creating content to support some of the biggest blockbusters out there,” Perry said in a statement. “I love bringing that big screen approach to commercials and creating stories for brands that have a really human and universal appeal. We Fly Coach approaches content the same way I do. In this changing industry, you have to stay lean but still deliver polished results. They embrace creative challenges; they don’t run from them.”
“Marcus brings a decade of experience creating high-end content and branded promos for some of the top motion picture studios and brands,” We Fly Coach partner and executive producer Elizabeth Benson said in a statement. “His versatility to direct A-list stars while working with a nimble crew and still delivering high-end content is something I was really drawn to. He really thinks as a viral content creator, and that’s exactly the kind of director we love having on our roster.”
