YouTube Opens Free Production Space For Creators In LA

By Megan O'Neill 

Today is an exciting day for YouTube creators, specifically those in the Los Angeles area.  YouTube has officially opened YouTube Space Los Angeles – a free production facility built exclusively for YouTube partners.

YouTube announced their intent to open free, state of the art production facilities for creators back in July.  They’ve already opened YouTube Space London, and YouTube Space Tokyo is in the works.  At these YouTube Space locations, YouTube partners are invited to work together and use a variety of production resources, including  a recording studio, three green screen rooms, two production stages, a motion capture studio, collaboration spaces, a screening room, and an equipment room with lights, cameras, mics, grip equipment and more..

Kathleen Grace, Manager of Production and Programming at YouTube Space LA, writes on the YouTube Creator blog, “The Space, a 41,000 square foot former helicopter hangar in Playa Vista, is a place where established and emerging creators from our Partner program can work together to cultivate big ideas and ambitious ways to tell their stories.  And like the YouTube Space London, YouTube doesn’t charge you any fees for use of the Space or the production equipment that’s housed there.”

In addition to equipment and production space, YouTube Space Los Angeles will also host events and meetups, as well as training programs, workshops and master classes.  Partners can learn more at
