Local Labor in a Global Space: Making Ends Meet at YouTube Space LA

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This presentation examines the working conditions of below-the-line screen media practitioners who are “crewing up” productions made at YouTube Space LA, the high-end production facility that Google has leased and made available for free to select channel operators since 2012. With similar structures in New York, London, and Tokyo, the production studios are a material extension of the online platform’s current efforts to “scale up” the largely amateur mode of production that first garnered it attention—a more globally uniform creative and professional ethos as the site looks to solidify its competitive edge (and share of advertising revenue) against traditional television. Yet this comes at significant costs to skilled labor in Los Angeles. Faced with dwindling job prospects, craft and crew increasingly turn to YouTube producers for work but without the promise of standard union protections or benefits, revealing the dangerous local ruptures in Google’s global game.
