YouTube has partnered with Indian film school, Whistling Woods International, to set up a studio space for YouTube content creators in Mumbai. 

The new YouTube Space follows the launch of a YouTube studio in Berlin in May, with the Google-owned video site offering similar facilities in Los Angeles, London, Tokyo, New York and Sao Paulo.

YouTube Space Mumbai will be a place where content creators can “collaborate, innovate and experiment with new content”, according to YouTube, with users gaining free access to Whistling Woods’ studios and high-end audio, visual and editing equipment.

“Through this collaboration, India’s popular up-and-coming YouTube creators, as well as their students, will have free access to Whistling Woods’ studios, high-end audio, visual and editing equipment, in addition to training programs, workshops and community events,” said David Macdonald, head of YouTube Spaces, Asia Pacific.

“We’re already in advanced stages of setting up the place and we’ll be opening the gates for all creators soon.”
