Bent Pixels creator community reaches 1bn monthly-views milestone

Multi-platform network Bent Pixelsis trumpeting a new milestone: 1bn monthly YouTube views for its community of nearly 18,000 creators.

The company focuses on gaming, entertainment and lifestyle content, with its gaming roster featuring influencers including Amaz, Hafu, and Cryaotic.

Dance squad The Kinjaz, comedians Joe Rogan, Chris D'Elia and Bill Burr, and podcasters The Fighter and the Kid are among Bent Pixels' non-gaming creators, meanwhile.

"As a self-funded, profitable, long-term player in social video we’re very pleased to demonstrate smart, stable growth that never sacrifices quality support for our talent," said CEO Mike Pusateri in a statement.

The Las Vegas-based company has been expanding in 2017 too. In November, it hired in a group of executives to focus on branded content and talent management, including Nick Carreras as VP of talent and brand strategy.

Carreras had previously worked with influencers including Markiplier, Shay Carl and Timothy DeLaGhetto. Bent Pixels' new VP of brand and talent sales, Louis J. Timchak III, also previously headed up gaming sales for Maker Studios.
