Howcast is changing it up this week, and Heather Menicucci’s weekly series on filmmaking in the digital age will resume next Friday.

Help Howcast find our first video blogger!

We're looking for someone to produce, edit and host our new video blog taking a look inside Howcast and the world of how-to. This is a real, paid part-time gig in our NYC office in SoHo.

Want to show us what you can do? Tell us why you should be the face of our new series by submitting a video response on YouTube. Be as creative as you want as long as you highlight Howcast's how-to content.

Be sure to check out the full requirements below, which include a dynamic onscreen presence, availability to work in our New York office, and serious video shooting and editing skills. Entries will be judged on originality, charisma, technical prowess and YouTube user comments.

Sound like you? Maybe your best friend? Your cat? OK, maybe not your cat, but you get the point. Anyone could be harboring dreams of online video stardom, so spread the word!

And if you think you've got what it takes, submit your audition now:
