Does your child long to be the next Smosh? Or Fine Bros.? Do you even know who these people are? Don't worry if you don't. They're part of the new phenomenon of the "YouTube celebrity" - individuals finding fame simply by creating and posting videos to YouTube. Whether looking for fame or simply wanting to make videos for their friends, Making YouTube Videos is the place your kids should start. Written by a filmmaking expert who runs camps for would-be filmmakers as young as 7, this book takes the reader step by step from idea to sharing on YouTube. Projects include:

* Shooting a video - using a camera as simple as one built in a phone, how to shoot video using tested techniques for framing, lighting, and sound recording
* Editing the video - explains how to grab free software and make simple edits like cutting out scenes, adding to a timeline, adding transitions, and building in special effects
* Posting to YouTube - the basics of creating a channel, uploading video, setting privacy, and talking to your audience

This book is part of the 'Dummies Junior' initiative, a new series extension from the trusted For Dummies brand that is created to appeal to and educate younger readers. The series applies the core For Dummies approach of presenting complicated topics in a light-hearted and non-intimidating way while adding key changes for the unique needs of this audience, including:
 * A design that is heavy on eye-popping graphics and focused on the steps to completing a project.
 * A small, full-color, non-intimidating package that instills confidence in the reader
 * A focus on 2-3 basic projects that sets the student on the road to further exploration
