The founder and CEO of Patreon, Jack Conte, contacted Casey Neistat with regards to collaborating with his new 368 daily vlog, and got a meeting with Casey due to his creative way of asking for it.
Patreon is a network that aims to empower the creators through their following. So if you like someone's videos on YouTube and they are part of the Patreon network, you can subscribe monthly and partly fund their creative executions. Or as creator, you can actually make a living off of what you create.
Casey Neistat hasn't quite defined what they will do with the channel and made it clear that they will find the business model at a later stage. However, he did reiterate that the studio he rented will be a space for producing work and collaboration. Here he responds to the video Jack Conte shared:
What I think is worth paying attention to is the creative way the request was sent for the meeting, the creative editing of the video and the way Casey responded. I think it might be a great move for Patreon, and might play a role in the production facility Casey Neistat is setting up.
