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?
We hope to build a culture of creativity and collaboration through visual arts, and create a rich tapestry of voices in Eagle County.
These opportunities 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.
All workshops cost just $20 and take place at the Edwards Field House. Details below. To sign up, visit Mountain Recreation.
Community media needs your support. Recent decisions by the Federal Communications Commission divert money from our community to the pockets of the cable industry. This, in addition to folks “cutting the cord” in favor of internet-based streaming services, means High Five Access Media needs your help. If you value programs like the ones mentioned above, please consider making a donation to High Five Access Media through Colorado Gives.
- Storytelling on Thursday, Oct. 24 | 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Sharing stories is a traditional method of passing along history, morals and information. Evoking an emotional response such as love, sadness or joy reinforces the message for the audience. This workshop uses comedy as a vehicle for storytelling while students learn the basics of video and audio. The group will choose a skit such as a gameshow, talkshow or Catfish to tell their story.
- Claymation on Thursday, Nov. 14 | 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Claymation involves bringing vivid, three-dimensional figures and scenes to life. In this workshop, participants will build plasticine monsters and animate them in a stop motion short story.
- Green Screen on Thursday, Dec. 12 | 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The green screen brings any setting, indeed, the world, to you. In this workshop, students will paint their hands to create three-dimensional characters to be superimposed, or green screened, upon animated backgrounds they’ve drawn.
