Just in time for the 2012 Summer Olympics, the YouTube Creator Space has made its own British invasion by setting up a studio at Google’s London office.
Sara Mormino, director of YouTube content operations and Next Lab in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said in an official statement that the new studios opened last night — two days before the Olympics Opening Ceremony — and more than 50 YouTube partners will take on London doing “man on the street” segments and creating shows centered around the Olympics.
For creators based in Europe, Middle East and Africa wishing to boost their opportunities in reaching out to their fans or to hone their production skills, the new YouTube Creator Space is a way to boost more profitable success stories.
Mormino wrote in a blog post: “Many of our partners are ready to take their channels to the next level. With this in mind we’re delighted to announce that in the next few weeks we’ll be opening the doors to our new creator space, housed in the offices of Google London’s Soho office.”
If you’re in London and seeking to make your next segment, the YouTube Creator Space is complete with full quality HD cameras, professional lighting, green screens, audio space, editing room and a control facility.
The YouTube Creator Space is not limited to just producing videos. Classes for aspiring and established creators will also take place at the London venue, including workshops hosted by experts and YouTube stars.
With the new studios fully up and running in a matter of weeks, expect more YouTubers worldwide taking advantage of these new facilities and making a living as a creator more lucrative than ever.
