YouTube is giving a little love to its neighbors up north: That’s right, Canada.
Starting this week, YouTube is rolling out the Canadian Creator Collab Callout (that monstrosity of alliteration is a total nightmare to type, so henceforth I’ll be calling it C4). In an effort to help creators branch out and lock in collaborations with other creators, C4 is giving YouTubers the tool and training to create stunning collab videos.
To apply for the program, creators must submit an application detailing their proposed collaboration. Those selected will receive training on optimization, best video practices, and free professional studio time to film the video.
Eligible creators must have at least 100 subscribers on his/her channel. YouTube also wants to make it clear that proposing collaborations with only one party on board is not “cool.” Looks like my idea for a collaboration with Ryan Gosling is out of the question.
The submission process ends November 29, 2013, so get out there and start doing whatever Canadians do in YouTube videos.
