This conversation is with Allen Debevoise, the CEO of Machinima.
YouTube has become a mammoth force in the world of video entertainment, serving as a platform for both new and established artists to distribute their content. The rise of MCNs, or multichannel networks, which both aggregate individual creator channels and, like Machinima, create much of their own original content, is one of the most important trends in YouTube and online video over the past year.
I talk to Allen about the growth of Machinima, which started out as a channel for videos created using game engines to a broad video game lifestyle network. We talk about this evolution, discovering new talent and where he sees Machinima going in the future.
