High Five Access Media hosts two ‘Making Media’ sessions

Make Media with High Five

Want to make video and share it with the community? Need to improve your media-making skills? Join High Five Access Media for its set of free video production workshops from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. June 17 and 24.

In Camera Basics on June 17, participants gain the skills to compose and expose an image, get familiar with basic operations of our Canon cameras, select the right microphone to capture clear audio and mount cameras on a tripod to get a stable image. Participants also get hands-on practice shooting footage that they’ll use to piece together a short video in the follow-up workshop, Final Cut Pro X on June 24. In this workshop, students learn to navigate Final Cut Pro X, piece together video clips with effective cuts, spice up projects with b-roll, lay down an audio track under footage, create simple but effective graphics and export a final video for the web, social media or broadcast.

Registration is required. Please email info@highfivemedia.org with your name, as well as the dates you’d like to attend. Membership is also required. It is free to Vail and Avon residents, $25 for other Eagle County residents, $40 for a family of three and $50 for local nonprofits.

Both Camera Basics and Final Cut Pro X are offered monthly and must be completed to become a community producer at High Five Access Media. Community producers have free access to High Five Access Media’s video production equipment and get the opportunity to show their creations on local cable television and the internet.

High Five Access Media is a nonprofit, noncommercial, grassroots community access media center that is available on Comcast channel 5 and anywhere, online. HFAM provides coverage of local government meetings, and offers free media education workshops each month to valley residents and nonprofits so they can learn about video production, check out video equipment for free, and express their ideas and advocate for a cause on cable television and the web.
