Did you know that there is over forty years’ worth of video on YouTube that’s available for public use and remix? The Creative Commons library launched a year ago, and a recent blog post on the site reminds users that this library is available to be used, as long as you credit the original maker. YouTube has also now introduced the option to automatically load all your clips to YouTube as Creative Commons Attribution License, showing it wants to strongly encourage sharing of this sort.
Not content with just getting people remixing, YouTube has gone even further and opened its own creator studios at its owner Google’s offices in London. The YouTube Creator Space contains two studios, a green screen, edit suites and a range of equipment. Perhaps the most interesting aspect is the promise of lectures and training sessions to help people get filming. It’s not entirely clear yet who can book and how, although with grand claims about ‘partners’ across Europe, the Middle East and Africa having access, the move certainly has the potential to shake up amateur (and not-so-amateur, given the way a lot of YouTube content is going) online video production.
