Creative: YouTube Animation and Design

As a creator, you have stories to tell, and YouTube is one of the top platforms on which to share them. What is inspiring and meaningful to you? Your passions can drive the development of a brand for your YouTube channel. While sharing your passions, you’ll develop skills in some of the most powerful industry-wide programs in the Adobe Suite, like Photoshop, Animate, and Premiere! 

Fundamental aspects of art and design will help lead you in sharing your content as you develop storyboards and program fundamentals to build out a short film. Creation on YouTube needs more than a witty video for long-term engagement, so you’ll also explore how to create tutorials, mini-documentaries, and talk about your process in a way that resonates with your audience.

To be a YouTube star, you’ll need to cover fundamental approaches and programs, and beyond that, you’ll get to spend time developing your creative eye and overall vision, while really thinking through engagement and marketing. Anyone can upload a video to YouTube, that’s its power. But your power will come from spending time creating, sharing, and engaging, and this pathway will give you the tools to go from ‘starting out’ to ‘standing out’.
