want to become an editor for a top-tier youtube channel?

(instead of creating your own)

for the first time ever,

we’re creating a separate track for creators that want to become full-time editors at other YouTube channels.

as part of this track, you will:

focus 75% of your creative time every week on editing
attend extra sessions about what it takes to become a full-time editor
meet other editors working towards the same goals
(and in some cases) get your best edits showcased to bigger creators

we'll literally pay you for trying 💰

this community is not for you if...

you just want to be passively entertained with pre-recorded course content
you aren't willing to work hard or post videos during the bootcamp
you really only want to dabble and do YouTube part-time
you're a total jerk

backed by top creators

we have an incredible slate of past workshop hosts & investors. who will show up this time?

see for yourself

"creator now teaches you the secret to how actual creators make viral content, and it's taught by actual creators who are making viral content."

FAQs

can I opt-out of posting every week?

yes, you can, but we really only suggest it for experienced creators who've already built an engaged audience and the ability to publish consistently. if you're super early in your creator journey, posting imperfect videos weekly will help you learn and grow so much faster than trying to post one perfect video every few months. quantity is often the quickest road to quality for creators early in the journey.

do i need to edit on a particular software?

no, you can use whatever editing software you’re most comfortable with. we know most creators use final cut pro or adobe premiere, but you can also use imovie, davinci, or whatever else you have access to. our only note is - while editing on a desktop / laptop computer isn’t an absolute requirement - we do suggest it. you’ll get the most out of the learning experience on desktop, not mobile.

what’s actually expected of me if i join?

show up, ready to rumble. create & post a video every week for six weeks. meet other creators in the community. pour a bunch of energy and heart into this. attend every workshop (in reason). be respectful. not to be cliché but... you'll only get out what you put in.

what if I work or go to school full-time?

everyone starts off by making videos on the side until they make enough money to take it full time. that is why we help our creators build personalized production systems that can harmonize with their personal obligations and schedules. remember that when Airrack first started in 2020, he was running a production company full time and only making videos on nights and weekends! this is part of the grind!

what is this whole team thing?

our #1 goal is to help you post every single week for the 6 weeks we're sprinting together. to help with this, we designed a team competition. we hope it makes that accountability a little more fun than just "check ins." but we also designed teams because... 300 people is a lot. we want you to have your own "tribe" that you can go to whenever you have questions / need anything.

where does the community live?

we've built our community on a new app called Geneva. The feedback from the community during the previous seasons is that they LOVE it. we've got video hangout rooms with screen sharing functionality that you can just stumble into to discuss topics like idea generation, editing, storytelling, brand deals, and more...

what is a video roast?

roasts are live sessions where top YouTubers watch your videos live on Zoom every single week during the bootcamp. frame by frame, they break down different engagement devices, music choices, cold opens, and more — to help you learn the principles of retention and storytelling.

who are the workshop hosts?

every season of Creator Now will have some repeated hosts, and some new ones. these are some of the smartest minds we know in the YouTube world that can really help you level up. they'll cover topics like idea generation, algorithm, editing, storytelling, setting up your business, and more.

will the workshops and roasts be recorded?

yes! you will have access to workshop recordings 24-48 hours after the live sessions. access these workshops through a web application or through our mobile app!

what if i don’t make videos exactly like Airrack?

Many creators in the community don't make videos like Airrack. We've had creators from all over the globe with channels in of all different sizes in all sorts of nichés. And we've done our best to create an experience that focuses on the universal experiences that ALL YouTubers go through, and to give tools and resources that will help you no matter where you're at in this journey. We've also created little micro-communities inside of the larger community so that you can connect with more creators making similar stuff.

can I join even if I've never made a video before?

Short answer: yes. Every great creator started at zero. But this all comes with a huge caveat. We don't want you joining this community, and not making the most of it. So we HIGHLY suggest figuring out a lot of the basics before the sprint starts — maybe follow a few YouTube editing tutorials and make a couple videos. We won't be teaching you how to pick up a camera, or the basics in Final Cut or anything like that. But if you really feel like you're ready to try this... let's get it.

when are the workshops and roasts normally held?

workshop days + times can be variable throughout the season to try and give everyone in our global community the chance to attend live, but most happen at 5pm PT / 8pm ET on week nights.
