YouTube Creator Space
YouTube’s official announcement video for Creator Space.
We’ve been working with YouTube to put this cutting-edge Creator Space together, and we’re incredibly excited at how the best-in-the-industry equipment we’ve been able to make available there will be used by many YouTube partners across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
We helped with the design, build and installation of the space. We aimed to make an extremely flexible video creation suite. The idea is that creators can walk into a studio, choose what equipment they want to use and set the place up for their specific project.
This means that we’ve made the space configurable: Cameras are on movable tripods; Lighting desks are on trolleys. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved.
Dreamtek Director, Victoria Neeson ran the Creator Space project: “I feel incredibly privileged and proud that Dreamtek were given the opportunity to work with Google and YouTube at their new London Creator Space,” she says.
“Our team of project managers and engineers worked tirelessly to deliver this fantastic facility on time and on budget, supporting our client’s construction and internal management team every step of the way. Dreamtek has proved that we have the expertise, commitment and strength to deliver a project of this profile and scale, resulting in a first class, innovative space for YouTube’s partners to create exceptional content.”
“It is amazing to think that some of the most successful creators on the platform, with millions of views, use little more than their bedrooms, a webcam and any props they can lay their hands on to produce compelling videos and build a global fanbase,” wrote Sara Mormino, Director of YouTube Content Operations and Next Lab, EMEA in the YouTube Creator blog, announcing the Space.
One of YouTube’s many helpful videos for film creators.
We know that millions of clips are being uploaded to YouTube every day — 72 hours of video are uploaded every minute.
We know that among those there are some real gems, fantastic videos made on a shoestring budget in people’s homes.
YouTube Partner ‘TomSka’ is making an impression with his original clips — this one’s achieved over half a million views.
The idea for the Creator Space is simple: “What if we gave free access to cutting-edge film creation technology to YouTube partners who’ve already shown us what they can do with the basic tools they have available at home?”

The future of online broadcasting isn’t going to be solely defined by what’s coming out of exiting major broadcasters, but also by the independent cinematographers who are producing great content today.
What makes your content stand out from the crowd? Originality, passion, and uniqueness seem to matter more than ever in the online age, and that’s what we think the Creator Space is all about: putting great tools into the hands of great people.
We’re very excited to see what comes out.
