On October 4, Maker staged its first-ever public event on Disney’s Burbank lot. For the event, Disney Studios played host to the world’s top YouTuber, Felix Kjellberg (PewDiePie), as he played against gamers like Stampylonghead.
In the video below, StreamDaily talks with Maker execs Todd Barrish (SVP of strategic partnerships) and Louis Timchak (head of West Coast sales), as well as Joseph Garrett, who created the Stampylonghead channel.
Garrett discusses a new educational channel he’s launching with Maker, called Wonder Quest, that’s expected to debut by the end of the year. And the Maker execs explain why kids like to watch streaming gameplay.
