"heart of vail" wins best documentary
The Alliance for Community Media, which represents 3,000 public, educational and governmental (PEG) access stations, awarded High Five Access Media’s J.K. Perry best documentary for production of “Heart of Vail.”
High Five Access Media worked with the Eagle River Watershed Council to create “Heart of Vail,” which seeks to educate Vail residents, streamside property owners, and government officials of the peril the creek faces because of pollution, and persuade the community to do its part to clean Gore Creek. Funding for production was granted by the Forrest and Frances Lattner Foundation.Read More »

By Holly Trickel
As a video professional who works and plays on the mountain, I see countless point-of-view cameras like the GoPro strapped to helmets, ski poles, boards and more.
