The fast and easy way for kids to shoot, edit, and share videos on YouTube

Does your child long to create and post videos on YouTube in hopes of becoming the next “YouTube celebrity?” Whether looking to go viral or simply wanting to make videos for their friends, Making YouTube Videos is the place your kid should start. Written by a filmmaking expert who runs camps for wanna-be filmmakers as young as seven, this fun and friendly guide takes your child step by step through the process: from idea creation to production to sharing on YouTube.

Written in a language they’ll understand and filled with eye-popping graphics that make the information come to life, Making YouTube Videos takes the intimidation out of working with video technology and offers your child a friendly, trusted source for expressing their creativity. Kids will work through small projects with end-goals that help promote confidence. With content that is accessible and easy to understand, this book is ideal for youngsters who want to go solo or work with you or another adult instructor.

  • Introduces ideas on framing, lighting, and sound
  • Shows kids how to load a video, add transitions, and add effects
  • Provides easy-to-follow instruction on uploading a video to YouTube and setting who can see or not see their video
  • Explains how to grab free software and make simple edits, like cutting out scenes, adding to a timeline, and implementing transitions
  • If you want to encourage your child’s enthusiasm but don’t want to endure a meltdown, Making YouTube Videos makes it easy for your aspiring filmmaker to fulfill his or her dream.
