YouTube supports new video production suite at BRIT School

By | Published on Monday 25 February 2019


After live steaming the BRIT Awards last week, definite-undisputed-who-ever-even-disputed-it friend of the music industry YouTube announced a new partnership with the BRIT School.

The tie up between YouTube and the BRIT Trust-supported secondary school will result in the creation of a new studio that will, and I quote, “help young and emerging musicians/artists share their talents with the world through video”.

What will now be known as the YouTube Music Studio is basically a significant refurb of the school’s existing video production suite which, once finished, will include, and I quote again, “a sixteen-channel audio desk, three studio cameras, playback screens, and monitors”.

YouTube’s Head Of Music Content Partnerships in the UK, Azi Eftekhari, said: “We are committed to fostering the next generation of talent in the UK and are so pleased to be working with The BRIT Trust on the launch of the YouTube Music BRIT Studios. We look forward to seeing the success of future students from the programme and the impact they have on the world of music in the UK and beyond”.

Meanwhile BRIT School Principal Stuart Worden added: “This is an exciting opportunity to have world class facilities that will help train our students to work in a creative sector that is growing at a rapid rate. The BRIT School has always celebrated new voices in music, performing arts, TV, film and digital arts. This major refurbishment will allow us to develop the talent of thousands of creative artists for years to come”.
