Be the star of your own show with a YouTube channel you create yourself. Explore a range of different video styles—DIYs, parodies, screencasts—and make your own version of each. Plan a production schedule, write the script, set up your lighting and shoot your short films in HD, adding special effects as you edit. Create custom thumbnails and channel graphics. Learn how to post your polished pieces and build an audience, then shoot one final video in any style you choose. At the end of the week, share your finished videos with family and friends—and the world.
