YouTube Restructures Closer to Hollywood Model

The Video Ink reports on a restructure around YouTube's content division and what that might mean for the future of the video site.

They write, "We’re told that this group will be in charge of overseeing scripted, non-scripted, and special projects that will receive funding from YouTube. In many ways, this could take shape like the 'YouTube Nation' deal or similar to the other funding the video site has done to date. While most of the projects being considered at present are short form, the next 12-to-18 months will be a testing bed for YouTube as it experiments with short-form formats that can also transition to television (i.e. 12 x 11 minute episodes that could be repackaged as 6 x 22 minute episodes). Think season three of 'Video Game High School,' which YouTube is also rumored to have partly funded."
