At age 14 Michael Herp knew he wanted to do something along the lines of video editing. Now at age 18 he is well on his way.

Michael Herp is a homeschooler with a plan and is realizing his goals. He recently won the Brad Paisley “Start a Band” Green Screen Challenge. The contest required contestants to put together a music video around Brad Paisley who is playing his song, “Start a Band” in front of a green screen.

The prize was a $1000 Sony HD video camera. What are Michael’s plans for his new video camera? He is going to enter another contest for a television commercial about saving energy. I wish him the best of luck.  After viewing his Brad Paisley video, I have no doubt he has the talent to take the prize for this contest as well.

If you’d like to see Michael’s winning video you can find it here. It will eventually be posted at Brad Paisley’s website but hasn’t as of yet.

Aside from entering contests that showcase Michael’s talent, he is working as head video editor for his church while he attends college.
