EXCLUSIVE: After 12 years at Gersh, Mira Yong has left to join WME as an agent in the Production/Motion Picture Lit Departments. She continues to be based out of New York. Yong has a strong list of DPs, Production Designers, Producers, Costume Designers and Editors. She handles multi-hyphenate clients that come out of the production world; several have moved up to directing and more are expected to make that jump. Yong is expected to take many of her clients with her. That includes Oliver Bokelberg, who has directed episodes and been DP on ABC’s Scandal; editor Barry Alexander Brown, who has worked with Spike Lee and Mira Nair; Tom Hammock, who has been production designer of Adam Wingard’s films and who directed The Last Survivors; Jade Healy, the production designer of Pete’s Dragon and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints; Kurt & Bart, the costume designers behind Hunger Games: Mockingjay 1 & 2; Reed Morano, director and DP of the upcoming film Meadowland; and Tim Orr, DP of the upcoming Sandra Bullock-starrer Our Brand is Crisis. Others are in play but expected to join her.
