As user-generated video online grows in popularity and sophistication, small studios have cropped up in Los Angeles that give creators access to spaces out of their own reach. YouTube's own space is the largest at nearly 41,000 square feet. Outside the building is a helicopter once built in the facility that Google converted into the sound-stage space. The company bought the chopper on eBay.
Ipsy Open Studios' largest space in the 3,000-square-foot facility has the re-creation of a vlogger's bedroom in one corner, while another corner has a lofted seating area above a section dedicated to editing.
