News: YouTube Space Venture Launched To Support Women In Comedy

YouTube Space is partnering with digital media company WhoHaHa and director, producer, and actress Elizabeth Banks to empower women around the world through comedy. With the help of WhoHaHa and Elizabeth Banks, YouTube Spaces in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Rio, Paris, Berlin, London, Tokyo, and Mumbai have joined together in launching this production programme designed to foster female comedic talent on YouTube. Through production sets, provided crew, mentorship and 50+ workshops/events, this new programme aims to inspire and support female storytellers on YouTube who use comedy as a platform for opportunity and change.

With the help of professionally designed sets and assistance from trained production crews provided by the team at YouTube Space, YouTube creators will be invited to create epic female-driven comedy videos over a twelve-week period.

The programme launches today with this video from WhoHaHa and Elizabeth Banks herself. Interested applicants can check it out on WhoHaHa’s YouTube channel for more details on how to get involved.

“At WhoHaha we believe it’s not only important but essential for women to have a platform to be able to share their voices and creativity. That’s why we’re excited to be teaming up with YouTube Space on this initiative that’s providing such a groundbreaking opportunity to creators all over the world,” says Elizabeth Banks.

As part of the partnership, WhoHaha and Elizabeth Banks will provide creative consultation and mentorship for creators. Additional mentorship resources will be provided at select Spaces that require localized comedic and industry advice. As another part of this program, in 2018, WhoHaHa will invite select creators across YouTube Space locations to produce a digital pilot for each creator’s YouTube series. YouTube Space and WhoHaHa will provide these creators production and mentorship resources to ensure these new voices continue to find support and to help ignite their careers in the entertainment industry.
