Stay tuned to learn how the student screenwriters resolve the real life ethical dilemma they wrote into the heart of the #LIKEUSMovie. It could be on the other side of this door. – FSA Performing Arts

LIKE US is an independent, anti-bullying short film about a topic that is close to many of us (myself and my brother included). It's a story about how self-identified misfits come together to achieve something greater, overcome their fears, and help one of their own. It's also a story about perseverance, belonging, and all of us.

As part of the media arts and filmmaking classes we offer, I was hired by FSA Performing Arts from The Ethical Community Charter School (TECCS) in Jersey City, NJ, to lead the instructional writing team, direct, and produce a film for students and by students. We wanted to teach students how to create a story they could relate to while also solving an ethical dilemma in a positive way to inspire other students.

Here's a first look at the "Doing My Best" scene.

It also introduces our lead actors.
