Godzilla Invades YouTube Space LA!
YouTube Space LA, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Entertainment have teamed up to bring Godzilla crashing onto the biggest video sharing platform in the world. Legendary is collaborating with YouTube’s top talent to create original videos celebrating the return of the iconic King of the Monsters to theatres everywhere this summer. Original set pieces, costumes, props and exclusive film assets have become an epic backdrop at YouTube Space LA, allowing for uncensored use by content creators in this innovative partnership.
The “Godzilla Invades YouTube” program is offered by YouTube Next Lab, the programming arm of YouTube Space LA, to inspire the next generation of storytellers through innovative programming and partnerships that push the creative envelope. This initiative marks the first time a studio has recreated a film set at YouTube Space LA.
From April 16 – May 8, 2014, YouTube creators wrote, shot and edited videos inspired by the upcoming motion picture Godzilla,which will appear on the official Legendary YouTube channel, as well as on their own channels, and will be promoted on the Godzilla and Warner Bros. Pictures social media pages. Videos are slated to go live between May 8 and the film’s theatrical release on May 16, 2014.
