High Five Access Media, the valley’s nonprofit community access media center, is offering free video production workshops this winter for anyone who lives or works in Eagle County.

Workshops are designed to give beginners the tools and training they need to create their own videos. Community Producers have checked out our equipment for free to create serialized interview shows, feature-length travel documentaries and more.

Newcomers start by becoming a member and attending a virtual member orientation session. Membership is free to residents of Vail and Avon, $25 for other Eagle County residents, $40 for a family of four and $50 for local nonprofits. During orientation, members will get to know High Five’s mission, staff, offerings, standards and goals for students.

From there, Community Producers can sign up for skills-based workshops including Mobile Video, Camera Basics and Editing Basics. Learn how to compose and expose images, navigate video cameras and tripods, record stunning audio and put it all together with crisp editing. At every step of the way, experienced instructors are available to empower students with storytelling skills, provide constructive feedback and facilitate practical learning opportunities.

Participants can take their learning even further by attending the Advanced Camera Workshop, $40, which dives deeper into how to use settings on DSLR cameras to create artistic effects that further storytelling goals.
