A new YouTube channel has emerged from the YouTube Spaces. Called Field Day, it features (and funds) a different, well-known YouTube creator each week as they take their own, unique “field days.”
For instance, Vsauce creator Michael Stevens used Field Day funding to bring a documentary crew to Whittier, Alaska, population 222. There, he spoke to the residents to see what their lives were like and why they lived in this extremely remote location. Check it out for yourself:
Other YouTube creators that have made videos for Field Day include Cut Video, Game Theorists, and Amymarie Gaertner. The first used the channel’s help to team up with makeup artists and show a young couple what they would like if they grow old together — like 50 plus years older than their current 20-something-year-old selves. Meanwhile, Game Thoerists’ “MatPat” got the benefit of a stunt pilot for his video, and Amymarie made a remote-controlled music video (you can see what that entails here).
Still other creators/channels that will appear on Field Day include Action Movie Kid, Improv Everywhere, Mike Relm, Devinsupertramp, MysteryGuitarMan, SoulPancake, and others. YouTube Spaces are making Field Day programming possible with support from production company 1stAveMachine. The channel’s considered “experimental” in that creators on it are going above and beyond what they normally do on their own channels (at a presumably much higher cost).
