Last weekend, Maker Studios had a little event at Disney Studios, which is not at all odd because Disney now owns them. But the criss-cross of “little” companies (like Maker once was) made big (by
companies like Disney, and The Chernin Group and others) is a sign of online video growing into adult clothing, and keeping an address at YouTube while building separate franchises of their own.
Otter Media, the joint venture between AT&T and the Chernin Group, announced they have purchased a majority stake in Fullscreen, after months (and months) of speculation. It’s yet another acquisition
by Old Media hands of Emerging (Emerged?) Media outfits.
