Take your first course to learn how the award-winning, independent, social impact film, 'LIKE US' – a film for kids, by kids – was scripted, directed, and produced. Learn how you can also use filmmaking to help inspire a message of acceptance and belonging.
Choose a scene from LIKE US that you would like to re-create. Then take our custom filmmaking scene study course to learn how each piece was put together and how you can create your own version using your smartphone, tablet, or camera.
Follow our guide or do it your way – create and upload your own version of your chosen scene to learn filmmaking, share messages of acceptance, and enter it into the next round of our LIKE US Awards competition.
Our curriculum is based on over 10 years of film and video instructional experience by THISLEARNING® – it also incorporates the award-winning independent, social impact film 'LIKE US' and message of acceptance into lessons on filmmaking as a way to teach inclusion through performing arts. See our example courses below. We'll be adding more courses, lessons, and scenes as we grow.
Do it just like the script, re-write part of a scene, or create a totally new take with your own ideas – all you need is to take our course on filmmaking and acceptance, and use your tablet, smartphone, or video camera to create your version on a short scene from our film. Then celebrate filmmaking and acceptance with us when we announce our annual LIKE US Award winners!
