Big Frame, a Hollywood-based media company delving into myriad parts of the YouTube business model, announced Tuesday that it has raised its first $3 million in seed funding.
According to the company, the funding comes from Anthem Venture Partners, Daher Capital, DFJ Frontier, LaunchPad LA, New World Ventures, The Media Farm and Social Starts, as well as angel investors Diego Berdakin, Dave Goldberg, Peter Gotcher, Clark Landry, Adam Lilling and Dan Murray.
Founded last July, Big Frame is part management company, specializing in helping emerging YouTube talents such as MysteryGuitarMan, Destorm Power and Mike Diva monetize their efforts.
In addition, the company functions as a production company. And it also specializes in branded content, working with a brand roster that includes 20th Century Fox, Levis, The Home Depot, Sony Electronics, THQ and Virgin Mobile. In April, capitalizing on Google’s premium content investment initiative, Big Frame launched its own YouTube channel, Bammo.
“We will use this round to continue investing in profitable models for content programming and marketing on YouTube,” said Big Frame CEO Steve Raymond.
