Duties- Edit a large collection of videotaped interviews with individuals who were active in the Citizen Action in Burlington that pioneered city-wide recycling in Canada. The collection has been used in the completion of a 20-minute documentary. We intend to add more material from the collection to create a longer documentary on the same topic.  
- Create an "Interview Library" for our collection. Go over all of the footage for bits that need to be cut out due to misstatements, repetitions, interruptions, etc. 
** Must have video editing experience and use your own editing equipment
