Yes, of course. We can't force you to do anything. But if you're new here, we suggest pushing yourself to post weekly. Experienced creators with a track record and engaged audience have the freedom to experiment with consistency more. 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.
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.
Look, not to be cliché, but you get out what you put in. So the better question is, what do you expect from yourself? Baseline from us is: show up ready to learn, create, improve, and connect every single week, and this experience can be life-changing.
Almost everyone starts by making videos on the side until they make enough money to go full-time. When our co-founder, 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, so all good if you have other obligations as well!
YouTube seems like a solo endeavor, but we think the best creators treat it like a team sport. Think of your team like a group chat full of your closest collaborators - who you can count on for feedback, support, and accountability. But it's not just a group chat. Your team will also compete against other teams for the cohort grand prize.
We've built our community on our own custom platform & a new community app called Geneva. We've got leaderboards, video hangout rooms with screen sharing that you can just stumble into to discuss topics like idea generation, editing, storytelling, brand deals, and more...
Roasts are live Zoom sessions where top YouTubers watch community videos every single week during the bootcamp. Frame by frame, they break down editing devices, music choices, cold opens, and more — to help you learn the principles of YouTube storytelling.
We are bringing together some of the smartest minds we know in the YouTube world & the community's most favorite hosts from the past year to share the secrets they've learned this year. We have sessions & panels on topics including idea generation, algorithm, editing, storytelling, Shorts, setting up your business, and more.
Yes! You will have access to workshop recordings 24 hours after the live sessions. Access these workshops through web or through our Creator Now mobile app!
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.
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.
Workshop days & times are variable throughout the cohort to give everyone in our global community the chance to attend live, but most happen at 5pm PT / 8pm ET on week nights.
