YouTube Opening NY Production Studio in 2014
This is great news for creators trying to break into broadcasting, filmmaking and programming. YouTube has facilities in London, Tokyo and Playa Vista, California which houses post-production and community event space. The state of art facilities designed for creators to produce original video content is what public access was supposed to be. However, adequate funding in many markets has always been an issue. You Tube's decision to expand was partially based on the continued growth of the video site. Some 35 YouTube channels have 1 million subscribers and the mobile app has been downloaded more than 250 million times. It appears YouTube has taken public access' ball and run with it!
