Revver Creator Meetup
Last night, I went to the Revver Creator’s meetup. I met Kory Klem and Damien from Revver, as well as a bunch of creators. Kory showed off the new Revver site, which just launched yesterday. Check it out, it’s pretty good. I like the embeddable widgets on the site. Strategically, Revver is moving towards becoming more of a destination than they have in the past, which will help their overall numbers.
After some networking, News for Blondes filmed an episode, where their host Bonnie was running for president. Pretty funny stuff. The people at the event played her supporters.
Overall, a fun event. After talking to a bunch of creators, I found the one thing they all have in common is low viewership numbers. The more I talk to people, the more I realize how difficult it is to really make a dent, despite the opportunity to distribute everywhere. Even if you’re part of YouTube’s partner program, there’s no guarantee of viewership. One creator did not have good things to say about that program by the way.
Jato is back for a couple of days so we’re going to finally officially wrap shoot this weekend. Can’t wait.
