    Sources say that at least some of Maker’s new round will go toward building out the company’s direct sales force.Maker can also use money to finance its large production arm, regardless of whether it renews its deals with Google in the coming months. And it can use some of it to help recruit new talent; it has had a falling-out with Ray William Johnson, a YouTube star who has stopped producing his “=3” show for the studio.
