Vail Valley’s High Five Access Media has video production classes this month
Do you have something you want to say to the community? Join High Five Access Media for free video production workshops on July 15 and 22 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
In Camera Basics on July 15, participants gain the skills to compose and expose an image, get familiar with basic operations of High Five’s 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 they’ll use to piece together a short video in the follow-up workshop, Final Cut X, on July 22. In this workshop, students learn to navigate Final Cut 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. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.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 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. High Five 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.

In terms of area, it’s the county’s smallest conservation deal ever. In terms of location, it’s one of the county’s rarest acquisitions.
