Creators: Step into our office …
Tuesday, August 30, 2016
From spirited discussions about
to live coverage and commentary of the
National Conventions, people have come to YouTube to watch over 110 million hours of candidate and issues-related content leading up this year’s US Presidential Election. The YouTube community has become a key part of these political conversations and we want to help creators take their presidential banter and commentary to the next level and encourage their audience to vote.
Today we’re unveiling new elections-themed sets at YouTube Space LA and YouTube Space New York that are now open for productions. Good news - if you’ve unlocked access at the Space, we’re still accepting applications to shoot on these sets in both
YouTube Space LA
YouTube Space NY.
Creators, bring your best White House game to YouTube Space LA where you can shoot on a 360-degree Oval Office set, or our multi-purpose set which includes a News Desk, Press Briefing Room, or Polling Station:
New sets at YouTube Space LA
Over at YouTube Space NY, you’ll be able to spin out your take on the latest political news within fully-outfitted Oval Office set or your choice of a White House Press Room and Debate Stage.

Specialized writing workshops at both YouTube Spaces are also already under way for creators to get tips on effective storytelling for politically-themed content. In New York, creators are working with filmmaker Morgan Spurlock and Warrior Poets to workshop productions that cover elections issues that are important to them. And in LA, select creators will participate in a comedy writing workshop taught by a seasoned improv and comedy writer. These classes will focus on developing writing skills for independent comedies as well as effective storytelling in experiential, engaging formats.
So far, we’ve welcomed creators like
, Key of Awesome, ABC News, Bernie Su of
Canvas Media Studios
in conjunction with
The Young Turks
onto the sets to shoot everything from original songs and comedic shorts encouraging Latinos to vote, to videos about increasing kindness perception in the US, as well as a 360 narrative series on life in the Oval Office. Will yours be the first channel to shoot on the stages in both cities? We can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

For the past four years, YouTube Space London has been home to an incredible community of creators. Over 26,000 of you have passed through our doors, many on multiple occasions.
At the YouTube Space, you’ve experimented with new technology, collaborated with other creators, gone large with big production backdrops, and blown our minds with your creativity, tenacity and talent. We’ve watched
turn filmmakers and
and witnessed you use all the Space has to offer to realise your big, creative ambitions. And boy, do you have big ambitions!
Over the years we’ve hosted you, it’s become clear that YouTube creators are shaping the world. You’ve invented entirely new genres (vlogging, anyone?), connected corners of the world through shared passions and pastimes (Let’s Play, people!) and built up billions of subscribers for your channels. Many of you have built and run fully fledged media companies.
It’s no wonder then that it’s time for us to graduate to a bigger, better and more accessible facility to help you continue to experiment and create. A stone’s throw from King’s Cross’ international transport hub, the new London Space is a stunning 20,000 square foot facility with street-level access, cutting-edge production equipment, and three fully equipped studios and sound stages. We’ll continue to run training programs that are open to creators at the start of their YouTube journey, while creators with over 10,000 subscribers can book in to use our studio Spaces for free. So whether you’re mastering the basics or keen to try out the latest VR technology - from filming in 360 to live streaming in 4K (!) - we’re here to support you.
So whether you’re giving your philosophy degree away for free, like
, or keen to create a
Christmas horror special
, like TomSka, the new London Space will keep you at the cutting edge of of creativity and provide a space for you to learn, connect and create with an incredible and growing community of YouTube creators. See you in Kings Cross!
