Maker Studios is a cutting-edge, talent-first media company founded by YouTube artists. Home to online video’s top digital stars, channels and content, Maker is the only network that provides partners a full range of vertically integrated services including development, production, promotion, distribution, sales, marketing and merchandise services.
The network was founded in 2009 to provide the best environment for artists to create, distribute, and monetize their original content on YouTube. The founders of Maker have believed passionately in YouTube from its beginning and have continued to make strides in providing talent the support, resources and community that allows them to excel on the platform. As talent themselves, they experienced firsthand how challenging it is to be a one person production studio—from wardrobe, to make-up, to producing, to editing, and then to find time to be creative—thus Maker Studios was born.
Maker Studios develops high quality, sustainable programming and is building large global audiences. Maker is also the only studio to develop and distribute an array of consumer facing verticals across genres. Maker is dedicated to help cultivate talent, take existing talent to the next level and build lasting brands with engaged audiences.
