How To Create An Unlisted YouTube Video

1. Go to your YouTube channel and add a video (If you have a Gmail account, you automatically have a YouTube account attached to it)
- Begin by making sure you are logged in to your YouTube channel. Once you’re on your YouTube homepage, click the add video button in the upper-right corner. (It looks like a little video camera.)
- From the drop-down button that appears, choose “Upload video.”

2. Choose “unlisted” in your YouTube video settings
- Now, it’s time for the important part: selecting your video’s YouTube privacy settings!
- To do so, click on the word “Public.” Then, on the drop-down menu that appears, choose the word “Unlisted.”

3. Upload your YouTube video
- Upload your video where the screen says “Select files to upload.”
- If you missed step two, and uploaded your video first, you can still ensure your video is unlisted before publishing.
- Once you begin uploading your video, you’ll see a screen that looks like the image shown here. On the right side, you’ll find a menu that starts with the word “Public.”

4. Publish your video to YouTube
- Making sure that the drop-down menu says “Unlisted,” click the “Done” button in the upper-right corner of the video.

5. Share your video’s link
- As soon as you’ve published your video, a page that looks like this will appear.
- Simply copy the URL provided and share it with anyone you’d like to see your video.

APPOINTMENTS
For the audition video:
MONOLOGUE: Please prepare one contemporary piece and one classical piece, comedy is encouraged.
SONG: Please prepare 8-16 bars of one song in any style. Non-singers are welcome to sing a cappella.
NOTE: All material should not exceed 4 minutes total.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Submit a link to an unlisted YouTube video of your prepared monologues and song along with electronic copies of your headshot and resume to Brian Pope at bpope@ppt.org by Monday April, 6 at 5:00 PM EST. (Instructions for creating an unlisted YouTube video are included at the end of the notice.)
