Our Story

In 2009, a group of forward-thinking content creators who had established themselves on YouTube, joined forces to collectively drive audiences to a single destination–The Station. The team pooled their resources to create and collaborate on content, operating with a talent-first mindset and ultimately expanding as Maker Studios.

What began as friends with a vision is now a global media brand with tens of thousands of creators, millions of subscribers, and billions of fans worldwide.

Now, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, Maker is the global leader in short-form video and the largest content network on YouTube.

Entertainment is evolving and Maker is at the forefront.
