YouTube said today it is launching the YouTube Creator Institute, a new initiative aimed at helping content creators improve their skills.

YouTube has partnered with the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts and Columbia College Chicago’s Television Department.

To apply to the YouTube Creator Institute applicants will need to submit a 2 minute video displaying creativity, originality, and technical skills. Also 2 short free response questions: Why do you want to attend the YouTube Creator Institute and how does it fit into your long-term goals? (400 words) and Describe the most emotional moment of your life. (600 words).

YouTube says participants will learn about story arcing, cinematography, money-making strategies and social media tactics.

The YouTube blog provides more details. “The YouTube community will vote for two weeks between March 28 and April 8 for their favorite creators.”

“The top voted candidates will move on to the final round, where our film and television school partners will choose the inaugural class for each of their programs, which will be announced on April 20.”

    Are you guys going to break the latest? I have had a youtube account for many years. I tried to login to youtube today and it said that I had to first create a “Google account” and link it to the youtube account; otherwise they don’t want me anymore. They are FORCING users to open Google accounts to spy on them. They also give you a link to close your youtube account if you don’t like their attitude so that’s exactly what I did. This is not the warning that you’ve seen for months now. Now you need to link accounts or get the hell out.
