Actor, director, screenwriter and producer Kevin Smith has turned to Maker Studios for help programming and marketing his new YouTube channel, SeeSMod.
Smith explains, “I’m an old moviemaker, unfamiliar with the newfangled ways of the YouTube generation. Getting in bed with Maker allows me and SModCo to learn how the cool kids do things. I look forward to their patience as they teach a fat Padawan how to be a Jedi at YouTube the Maker way, and I plan to shoe-horn myself into all their fine programs.”
Maker Studios is one of the largest YouTube networks, representing a number of big name YouTube brands, including Epic Rap Battles of History, KassemG, and others. Unlike Smith, who is new to creating for YouTube, Maker has a wealth of experience managing and programming successful YouTube channels that they bring to the table in this partnership with SeeSMod.
SeeSMod, according to Paul Bond of The Hollywood Reporter, initially launched in May but re-launched just last week on January 7. The channel features a weekly schedule of slows including Why Bry?, Comichead, Walt Flanegan Draws!, and Sloppy Seconds with Kevin Smith! The channel has racked up over 62,800 subscribers and 3 million video views so far.
