YouTube Space LA, Skybound Entertainment and legendary comic book creator Robert Kirkman are teaming up to deliver Halloween-inspired content onto the world’s biggest video sharing platform with a unique program for top YouTube creators.

From now – October 29, 2015, YouTube creators will write and shoot videos on this year’s Halloween set, inspired by Robert Kirkman’s works, at YouTube Space LA, based on the theme, “What happened here?” You can check out a 360 video of the set below.

Videos are slated to go live between October 26 and Halloween and will appear on individual creator channels. Selected videos will also appear on the YouTube Spaces channel and the official Skybound YouTube channel, as well as promoted on social media.

15 talented YouTube creators, representing eight channels, were also selected for an exclusive scriptwriting workshop to develop a comedic or dramatic story as part of the program.
