I want to start my own YouTube channel doing pranks and talking to people on the street. I have started doing a few practice ones off camera with friends but I would like to start posting them on YouTube. All my friends are unwilling to film so I figured I need to find someone who would be willing to and also committed like me. My problem is that I am currently just about to turn 17 and I am still at school and I don't have a job. Therefore I can't afford to pay a cameraman. Is it possible to find someone who would work with me for free. As I am not paying them I am willing to allow them to be part of the channel and have a say in how it is run and what we film. I would also be happy if they wanted to be in the videos too. I have always liked photography and know how to use a camera and edit. It is just impossible for me to film these videos alone. If this person wanted to be in the videos as well I would be able to do filming too. I can also do the editing myself if it is needed.
I'm looking for someone who is more than just a cameraman ideally. More someone to start a channel with although if that person only wants to do camera work I don't mind. I would be willing to give the person a share of the money made from YouTube. I realize that this is a hard task to undertake and you cannot just assume you will succeed. I do not expect to make a living from this; I am mainly doing it for fun and as a hobby. I also have my own mic and am just about to purchase a DSLR. Can someone please give me advice on how to find someone and where to advertise (I realize this forum may not be the right place)? I am relatively new to this so I don't mind if the person is new/amateur. It would also be preferable if the person was around my age.
Here are some of the people who do similar things to what I want to do:
Thanks for your help,
