We all have secrets. Some of us can live with ours. This is the short story of a young woman who can no longer live with her secret. A few drinks after work, a bicycle and a mistaken identity. Eventually, we all face our secrets. "Secrets" is my first short video/film ever. After nearly 25 years in Broadcasting, I decided to write, shoot and edit my own short videos. Spurred on by the short video contest "DVChallenge" at DVInfo.net, I shot a short dark video as my first creation. I was lucky enough to work for a broadcast equipment company a short time ago and was able to buy some great professional DVCam equipment, which I recently began to put to use. "Secrets" won 1st place in DVChallenge 2. I am particularly proud of this, as it was my first effort. Some could argue that 25 years in broadcasting helped and I would agree. On the other hand, in broadcasting, one person nearly never does all the jobs of writing, shooting, editing, DP, LD and so on. My videos to date have had a crew of exactly one, me. So far, I like it that way. As the complexity level in future videos rises, I will be seeking help for various roles. Also look for my even darker short called "Frame 37", created for DVChallenge 3. I hope you enjoy "Secrets". You can find out more information on what I do at http://www.DeepBlueEdit.com Thanks for watching, Sean McHenry

Plus, future Macbooks to be made from bicycles?
