Maker Studios Shutting Blip

Los Angeles-based Maker Studios is shutting down Blip, the online website which had developed, produced, and distributed web series from up-and-coming creators. Maker Studios told users of Blip in an email that it will be shutting down Blip in August, and that users will need to export their videos elsewhere. Maker Studios acquired Blip in 2013, originally as an alternative to distribution of content on YouTube.
