The German creator scene forms one of the world’s most vibrant YouTube communities. They produce content for passionate audiences in a country where video consumption is amongst the highest in the world. To support this incredible community of YouTube creators and foster the next generation of talent, YouTube has partnered with MET Film School to open YouTube Space Berlin.
MET Film School is one of Europe’s largest film schools, running undergraduate, postgraduate and short programmes in practical filmmaking. Through this partnership, Germany's most talented YouTube creators, as well as, all of the students, will have free access to high end audio, visual and editing equipment, in addition to training programs, workshops and community events.
This collaboration follows in the footsteps of our YouTube Spaces in Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and most recently, New York City and Sao Paulo. Since the first Space was launched in 2012, creators have visited our Spaces over 100 thousand times, we have had over 800 events and workshops and our partners have created over 10 thousand videos.
Like all of our production facilities, YouTube Space Berlin will be a place where creators can collaborate, innovate and experiment with new content for audiences around the world to watch and love. It’ll also offer opportunities to:
- Learn: From training programs and workshops to master classes, there are opportunities to get hands-on experience from industry leaders, and learn to use high end production equipment, production techniques, and YouTube best practices.
- Connect: Attend events, meet fellow creators, spark new ideas and share experiences on how to succeed on YouTube: Happy Hours, Events for gaming, sports, family entertainment, collaboration events and more.
- Create: This is a space for creators to bring stories to life. They’ll have access, for free, to a studio and all the latest audio, visual and editing equipment that will enable them to experiment and create great videos that fans will love.
The YouTube Space Berlin is another way for YouTube to help foster creativity, entrepreneurship and partnership with top video creators in the country and around the world. It’s amazing to see what creators have already been producing and we are excited to see what is coming next.
