The video-sharing giant, YouTube, hosted the first YouTube NextUp creator camp in the Middle East this week. Held in Amman, Jordan, the camp lasted for five days and included 19 YouTube creators from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Tunisia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Sudan, Oman, and Jordan. Designed to identify and help promising YouTube content creators, NextUp Amman organised workshops on everything from production, to how to plan a channel’s content. The camp also utilized Jordan’s production experts from across the film and TV industry, who provided one-on-one coaching in everything from lighting, audio, storytelling, camera, and editing techniques. The 19 creators were selected from a pool of applications received from across the region during the NextUp competition which ran in October. The result was an exchange of talent and passion for the stories the 19 winners are telling through their YouTube channels.
