Inclusive Media Arts

Inclusive Media Arts is a collaborative video making class that provides opportunities for people with disabilities to connect with the community.  The Berkeley Adult School program is hosted at TheCIL.

"Girls Like You" Remake


Inclusive Media Arts Class selected the song "Girls Like You" by Maroon 5, because of its meaningful message and memorable tune. We decided to change up the gender roles, and make it about ALL PEOPLE, and are excited to present to you Sophie Howarth (AKA "Sophie Levine") in her first ever on-camera lead role. We hope you like it!

Let's Get Happy: Dance Documentary


Check out our documentary project about DANCE. It features dancer ANN MARSEN, clips from Dance/Music Documentary GIRL WALK // ALL DAY(Directed by JOSH KRUPNICK) and Music by GIRL TALK. It also features "Happier" by Marshmello ft. Bastille.

"Intergalactic" Music Video


The song "Intergalactic" by The Beastie Boys was the culmination of different interests of our class. We were inspired to recreate the scenes in locations that were accessible to us... BART, our classroom at The Center for Independent Living at Ed Roberts Campus, Downtown Oakland, and DeLauer's Super Newsstand.
