Happy New Year! We’re excited to announce dates for Winter 2023 Workshops! As always, basic workshops are free for all members.

Workshops are designed to give absolute beginners all the tools and training you need to create your own videos. Community Producers have created serialized interview shows, feature-length travel documentaries and more. You can watch all of our programming here on our website via Live on Five or the Watch tab.

Newcomers should start by becoming a member and attending a virtual 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 our mission, staff, offerings, standards and goals for its students.

From there, you 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 you with storytelling skills, provide constructive feedback and facilitate practical learning opportunities.

You can take your 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 your storytelling goals.

Registration and membership is required. Membership is limited to Eagle County residents or employees.

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 online.
