Revision3 Chief Executive Officer Jim Louderback poses at his company's studio in San Francisco, California October 3, 2012. Revision3 is part of an entire new industry of YouTube "networks" - a cross between talent agencies and old-school movie studios have emerged, bringing hierarchy to an ecosystem that looks more like Hollywood by the day. A year ago this month, YouTube embarked on an initiative to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to acquire original, professional content in an effort to compete for ad dollars against traditional television networks, digital streaming services such as Netflix and rival Internet companies like AOL and Yahoo.
