PewDiePie for Prez? YouTubers can take over these presidential sets
It's a presidential election year this year.
And YouTube is giving its creators the opportunities.
To make content, to start a conversation with voters.
People often confuse this facilities at production only facilities.
My name is Alvaro Paes De Barros and I'm head of YouTube space Los Angeles.
I like to think this as a college campus.
Except without the crushing debt or finals.
This is a place where people come to learn, connect and to create.
It is open to creators.
It is free of charge.
Restrictions apply, see your local YouTube space website for details.
But we really believe that is the place that can super charge your videos.
And the way we do this is to provide the tools and the guidance that they need to be very creative and very innovative.
So we have everything from Canon 2300
To reds, scans, lights you name it we have it along with our VR camera's that we have on display here.
Okay, so how is this space specifically helping with election videos?
The community of YouTube, users and creators, are a key member of this discussion.
We have more than 50 creators enrolled
In those workshops are to use the ready to use set and the idea is that those videos are published before the election day.
YouTube doesn't even care who each creator is voting for.
It just wants them to make video and get their audiences involved.
Let's drop in on MiTu, one of the creators using the space today.
I'm Leo Gomez, I'm head creator at MiTu.
The basic message is to try to send super clear messages about why it's important for [INAUDIBLE] to vote beyond the generic messaging on have your voice heard.
That kind of thing, right?
And we're sending a different message.
For a [UNKNOWN] that is already there.
And now we're at the point where we can say, okay, now is the time to get together and actually make something happen.
Let's get jacked on Democracy everybody, I'm excited.
And America looks more like a multicultural country more than ever, and I see that reflected here.
I don't even have a joke here, well said.
YouTube is facilitating all these spaces to
Allow people to manifest their ideas.
It is very important to go out and vote.
Because if we don't vote then we're not being part of the decision.
And then how can we complain later on when we don't participate.
Being able to have fun with a space like this and be able to talk about the election.
It literally looks like the Oval Office.
I mean look at this.
I love the Oval Office.
[LAUGH] I just walked in there, it's amazing.
I think it's fun, it's great.
I don't even know their making profit out of it and I don't care.
It was like creating a space for people to come and actually use it.
To create content.
And walk in and see people from Japan, Australia, Latin America, the US, all over the place young people creating and that's really, really amazing.
That's really beautiful.
It's a wonderful space.
Basically multi-cultural youth get together and they start to vote and they can actually change the course of this.
The selection.>> So if you haven't yet registered to vote because you think your vote doesn't matter or you can't make a difference.
Well watch some YouTube videos from creators that are utilizing this space and other sound stations around it for the election spaces program.
And register to vote.
