Maker Studios, the digital media company, has raised $26 million to expand internationally, increase its staff and grow its technology offerings, the company said Thursday.
Maker, based in Culver City, is the company behind YouTube successes such as "Epic Rap Battles of History," Kassem G, the Shaytards and PewDiePie.
The company raised $36 million in December, led by Time Warner Investments, and the second part of the round brings the total series C tally to $62 million.
Earlier this month, Maker acquired Blip, a company know for its technology for distributing original Web series.
Maker counts more than 4 billion views online a month with 60,000 channels and about 260 million subscribers.
