reenvision community media
Our new vision at High Five Access Media is to offer the community more educational opportunities to learn about, create and share media, especially for local youth. What better way for students to find their voice and share their vision for the future than through community media?

These opportunities begin Oct. 24 and include an upcoming series of workshops in partnership with Mountain Recreation. In October, November and December, we’ll hold individual workshops for youth ages 12 and up to learn about storytelling, Claymation, cinematography and field production.Read More »
