Quotes From This Episode:

The more experience you have in the industry, the more you learn that you need to be emotionally detached from the content because a lot of the time, the brands are very black and white in what they're looking for. Click To Tweet

“We’re seeing a lot of people trying to shift towards YouTube, and the ones who have started with short form and continued on with long form have actually done very well, whereas going the other way around is kind of difficult.” 

“I think brands are getting pretty good about letting you have the creative control because at the end of the day, if they try to narrate the video, it’s very obvious, but at the same time, it just benefits everyone when there is some creative control.”
