First of all, let me introduce myself. I am a 27 year old animator who just got graduated from art school and is actively searching for a job. Until then I'm going to use Youtube as my main source of income. Say, suppose I made my first animation which made 100k views in a month, 40k of them were monetized with half of the viewers from US. My main concern is the CPM module. I don't want to post a video and end up only earning $0.19 for a video I worked hard for. I want it to at least pass the threshold within a month and this is what I'm expecting for my first video. but I don't know whether it's possible or not with the current algorithm.
