Naomi Fraser is going into her fourth year at UTSC, majoring in mental health studies and minoring in studio and women and gender studies. She had experience in doing video editing as a hobby whether it was small fan edits, to motion graphics and minor animation. She loves video editing and have not been able to do it for a while until she took Midi’s class and participated in this project. She likes to edit videos because it gives her the freedom to create something completely different and new from a different perspective. She is only minoring in studio so that she gets the opportunity to edit more often. She would love to, if possible, be able to do digital marketing on the side of her main career. Editing for her is a different side of story telling that is more vast than filming itself. Editing is story making.
