Lover of musicals and such. Will find this eventually and write something interesting. - Matt Johnson, 2011

EDIT: Found this. Still not interesting. - Greg Ebdon, 2012

Creator of the most-watched (and fastest-watched) video in YSTV's history, the Guide to Colleges. Rewrote the Constitution & Policy and directed a complete asset audit in 2013. Presided over the great web server crash of Easter 2013. Created the YSTV test cards. Participated in development of the HD Roadmap before YSTV's transition to digital HD broadcasting, and the discussion of an accompanying studio move. Created the Station Meeting minutes archive and sourced over 5 years' worth of lost minutes. Founded the short-lived Commercial Workshop with Sarah David and created the station Image Library after doing the members photoshoots. Got involved with Union after finishing university and ended up as the series DoP, completing six episodes (well, only a couple of scenes of the NUS one), editing the trailer and contributing to the DVD commentaries. Even many months after leaving YSTV, people still keep getting him to do voiceovers...

YSTV inspired him into thinking that TV and film were something that normal people like him could actually do, so he went and did a postgrad in it. He's now trying to justify that decision.

You can now add to your accolades that you basically wrote the NaSTA encoding standards. - Calum Brookes, NaSTA Technical Officer, 2014

Greg is the person that links the gifs. - Thomas Cheyney, 2014
