Ting began editing while studying film at Columbia University, after which she worked at @radicalmedia for almost 10 years cutting both commercials and long form branded content. In 2008, she edited the documentary Britney: For the Record which, at its premiere, was the most highly anticipated and watched program ever to air on MTV. Since joining Spot Welders in 2012, she has worked on Super Bowl campaigns for Bud Light and NBC Sports, campaigns for Facebook and Google, as well as documentaries for Netflix and HBO. In 2015, she co-edited her first VR piece, The Displaced, which won the Entertainment Grand Prix at Cannes and earned her an Emmy nomination for New Approaches: Current News Coverage. She has since cut numerous VR films including The Protectors, directed by Kathryn Bigelow and Imraan Ismail, which premiered at Tribeca in 2017. This year, the documentary short she edited, “Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405” was nominated for an Oscar.
