Username: User:seanmcgowan
Gender: Male
Photograph: Am very handsome, don't worry. :)
Experience: None. But I am a novelist, an avid student of history and especially the Middle East, I have a great digital camera with very high quality video capabilities, a 2-gig SIM card, the fastest MacBook Pro on the planet, I speak four languages, am on my own traveling the world with enough of a budget to finance myself, and am presently in Lebanon forty miles south of tank fire. I was five miles from the car bomb in Beirut this morning. I would like to contribute some multimedia (I am very computer literate but only have the standard Mac software like iMovie, etc ... which I think should be sufficient) to this project. I don't know where to begin. Anyone with any info or help, please contact me directly as I may not be able to check back here and don't really know the in's and out's of this whole Video2.0 thing at all. ... thanks! I hope I can help.

Experience: 'Even though I am only 18 years old, I have attended the Grimsby Institute of Higher Education in the UK, studying broadcast journalism and media studies. I have also done a course with the London School of Journalism - and have appeared on many local and national television broadcasts in the UK - and I have also appeared on many websites - reporting on news stories. I have filmed, presented, edited and produced many news videos - all using proffessional video editing software such as Apple's Final Cut Studio 2 and Adobe Premiere. My work has also been recognised by some of the big international broadcasters. I can provide links to YouTube and my personal website to show you my work.
