“Thanks to the world of online sharing platforms, content creators no longer need to ask for permission for their content to be broadcast and shared – they can reach their audiences directly.”
Jonny Persey, Chief Executive, Met Film School
In 2015 MetFilm School Berlin launched an exclusive partnership with the world’s biggest creator community online, YouTube, in the opening of Europe’s second YouTube Space at the school’s campus in Berlin. Berlin joins similar ventures in London, Los Angeles, Tokyo, New York City and Sao Paulo.
This space offers state-of-the-art studio facilities for Met Film School students, as well as unique opportunities to become immersed in the world of content creation and take the next step in their careers as filmmakers of the future. Students will have access to 9 areas consisting of a reception, a green room, 2 ready set rooms with different themed sets, a meeting room, a hangout/cafe area, a screening room, a make-up room, post production facilities and a Large 1,500 Square FT studio.
Students and creators will also have access to use the latest high-quality equipment for video production such as cameras, lenses, camcorders, microphones and lights. The fully equipped studio provides special dimmable lights to allow any style of production.
A Changing Industry
Met Film School strives to constantly adapt to the changing nature of the industry and that’s why this partnership is so important. Platforms such as YouTube will undoubtedly play a huge part in the future of filmmaking and distribution. Thanks to the world of online sharing platforms, content creators no longer need to ask for permission for their content to be broadcast and shared – they can reach their audiences directly.
It is this ‘no permission needed’, democratic, proactive approach that truly captures the spirit of Met Film School, attracting those with a passion for filmmaking and a strong desire to succeed.
It’s not just through equipment and space that Met will pass on the benefits of this partnership to our students. Students and staff will also benefit from the organic collaborations with other YouTube creators that will occur at the Space.
The partnership is aimed at delivering mutual education and providing a space for creative collaborations. YouTube creators will learn from the production and technical expertise of Met Film students, and on the other hand film students can learn from YouTube creators on building their own channel. For filmmakers, this can be a great way of getting insights in how to create an audience online and tell stories in a different way and for YouTube creators this can be the chance to gain additional filmmaking skills.
