How do you become a better video creator? Sometimes, other creators make the best teachers. Who better to learn from than those who have been in the same boat? 

In this episode of The Visual Lounge, we speak with Rob Balasabas, the Head of Partnerships & Community at Uscreen, whose top tip for creators is to surround yourself with other creators. 

Rob explains why collaboration, not competition, is key to succeeding in the creator space and shares stories of how he’s managed his own creator journey. We also hear his advice on working with brands as a creator and then, on the flip side, how brands can hire creators themselves. He also breaks down the top two trends that he’s seen grow in the video space.
