Brad Paisley Invites Budding Filmmakers to ‘Start a Band’
"This is probably the worst idea we've ever had -- letting you put me in any situation that you want," Brad Paisley says with a chuckle, on the video posted at www.bradpaisley.com/green. "But I'm willing to do this, because I believe in promoting the art of filmmaking and letting young directors have their chance to see if they can do better videos than we can. There's a few of 'em I'm pretty sure you could've beat."
Paisley is talking about his 'Start a Band' Green Screen Challenge. The country superstar is giving fans a chance to show off their creativity with a video contest built around the Keith Urban duet, 'Start a Band.'
"Using green screen video editing software, all you've got to do is take the green stuff out of the background and put me anywhere you want me," Paisley explains. "Use your imagination. Put yourself in there, put me anywhere you want."
The site offers several different options of footage, as well as helpful links to video editing tutorials. The grand prize winner will take home a Sony High Definition Handycam Camcorder and an autographed copy of Paisley's latest album, 'Play.' Ten runners up will also win autographed CDs, as well as Flip Video Camcorders. The contest runs from now through January 19.
