90to5 Editor Bio: I’m Damone Harris from Milwaukee Wisconsin. I am a current student at Milwaukee area technical college studying eProduction/television production. I love editing. Its my passion and I’m working hard to perfect the craft.

I wanted to go for a nice, campy science fiction movie so I chose to edit The Colossus of New York. The title caught me and then the movie reeled me in. I enjoyed editing this piece of art from the 50’s. Its a great story,entertaining and thought provoking.
