You asked, and you shall receive. We’re throwing open our doors on evenings and Saturdays this winter so volunteer community producers have more opportunities to create content to share with friends, family and the community.

Our new vision at High Five Access Media is to offer the community more educational opportunities to learn about, create and share media. This is your chance to share your voice with the community.

The possibilities for open studio hours are limitless, but here are some ideas:

  • Meet with staff to develop a project. We’ve got production experts on hand to help you make a plan to create your digital masterpiece.
  • Refresh your skills. Been awhile since you’ve taken a basic workshop? Need additional help editing? Schedule time to go over the ins, outs and what have yous.
  • Check out field equipment. Come by after work and grab some equipment to capture b-roll and interviews for your next documentary or other project.
  • Make a television show in our studio. We’ll begin offering a television studio production workshop this winter so you can create your own show in a matter of hours. Stay tuned!
  • Reserve an iMac for editing on Final Cut Pro X. You captured a bunch of footage in the field, now put it all together.
  • Use the studio. If you haven’t yet taken our studio production workshop, you can still use the studio space and lights for interviews and other projects.
  • Safe place for youth volunteers to hang out after school and on Friday nights with other youth volunteers.

New open studio hours run from Dec. 3 to April 25, and are as follows:

Tuesday through Friday - 2 to 9 p.m.
Saturday - 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Studio Closed - 12/14, 12/24, 12/25, 12/31, 1/1, 2/1
