Three young people have become prolific editors, shooting their own footage and coming to MYRC to edit. One young woman in particular made a number of short films, was a peer educator on the 2005 MYRC kick arse project, was employed as a tutor in the Links to Learning project and taught others including MYRC staff how to use the editing program. In 2005 she completed a Certificate III in Music Performance and is currently studying a Certificate III in Screen at Eora College. More recently, she has been teaching her friends camera and editing skills.
