This week on The Influencer Economy, I speak with Ezra Cooperstein, President of Fullscreen entertainment. Ezra and I met years ago when he worked at Maker Studios, and I was at Machinima.com. We have been involved in the online video & YouTube since the early days, and we talk in detail about his journey.
Ezra became fascinated by the web when he worked for Current TV after attending school at UCLA. He then was the Founding CEO at Maker Studios, an online web studio helping YouTubers grow their channels, and ultimately build and monetize their online successes.
Ezra is currently the President of Fullscreen, working with creators like Burnie Burns of Rooster Teeth, Shane Dawson, The Fine Brothers and Grace Helbig. We talk in depth about the business of YouTube, how creators and monetize, and the future of online video.
