The Community Project
Live from the Avon Public Library

Folk rock group Many Mountains joins The Community Project on May 26, live from the Avon Public Library. In this episode, which airs live from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on cable Channel 5 and Live on Five, we've got The Haps for June, a discussion of summer library programs, and a bevy of video pieces. The community is welcome to attend, enjoy the show, and learn more about High Five Access Media and the Avon Public Library.

The Community Project is a regularly recurring TV/web show that highlights what's possible when you get involved with High Five Access Media. Our team of local community producers showcase local musicians, artists, athletes and weekend warriors. As host Holly Trickel says, "We keep it hip, fun and informative." For past episodes of The Community Project, point your browser here.

You can watch The Community Project live on cable channel 5, on the interwebs at Live on Five, or on your Roku on the PEG.TV channel.

Get the Word Out
High Five Access Media Offers High-Quality, Low Cost Video Production

Did you know High Five Access Media offers video production services to local nonprofits? We believe in supporting local nonprofits so they can create media that advocates for their cause. We offer a range of services, including event coverage, live cable broadcast and internet streaming, public service announcements, documentaries, editing, and more.

Once your video is complete, we'll air it on local cable Channel 5, on the internet at Live on Five, and post it on our website so anyone can watch anytime, on demand. Then take the video and post it to your website, Facebook or other social media outlet to engage new and current supporters.

Take it from one of our partners, Holly Loff of the Eagle River Watershed Council:

"We have teamed up with HFAM to produce two films, one which documented the $4 million Edwards Eagle River Restoration Project, its accomplishments, primary goals, and community involvement. The other, Heart of Vail, set out to educate the community about the aquatic life impairments on Gore Creek. This film does an amazing job of explaining how the creek ended up listed with the state as an "impaired stream," what the community's role is in that and what we can do to fix the problem. We showed Heart of Vail in a large theater as part of Patagonia's Wild and Scenic Film Festival. The quality of the sound, picture, interviews, and writing was on par with the films in the series. People commented to us afterwards on the talent of the team at HFAM. We are lucky to have them. Without question I would hire them again."

For more information, click here or contact executive director J.K. Perry for a free consultation. We'll discuss your needs and create a plan to set your vision in motion.
