What we're about

Longmont Public Media is a media makerspace devoted to the education, production, and distribution of local media that matters.

The Longmont Media Makerspace group is for anyone interested in creating or learning about media, tv programming, film editing and production, podcast production and recording, and more. The group is also for anyone interested in helping contribute content to our local public access tv channel.

Background information:
The Longmont Observer was awarded a contract to provide Public Access TV for the City of Longmont, replacing the 37-year-old Cable Trust. This will happen beginning on January 1st, 2020.

Our view of Public Access Media is, we believe, a little different than what’s been happening with Public Access TV for the last few decades.

We plan to create a media makerspace, like Longmont’s TinkerMill Makerspace. However the media makerspace will focus on media. It will be a place where the Longmont community goes to learn, teach, create and distribute all forms of media. We will encourage and assist patrons to distribute that media on as many different platforms as possible; last century analog systems like Cable TV, possibly FM radio, a vast current array of media consumption methods and devices, as well as everything in-between.

We see this new approach to Public Access Media providing the community with audio and video tools, cameras, software, studios, classes, and expertise to create a community of like-minded media enthusiasts. This community will range from amateurs learning how to edit video, to podcasters, to experts who’ve spent their lives in Hollywood. Longmont is a rich community of creatives and we plan to give them a place to meet, collaborate, learn and create.
