Silver Bullet Productions

Educational Filmmaking Program for New Mexico Communities

Silver Bullet Productions believes that relevant learning increases educational success for a community. “Relevancy” is when the teaching, skills, and materials are connected to a student’s culture and history, and will be useful learning tools immediately and in the future.

We create relevant educational experiences in two ways:

We produce student workshops in writing and filmmaking, and we donate new camera equipment to the school. Students are able to continue practicing their story telling and preserving their cultural heritage through film.

We create award-winning documentaries that expose esoteric topics, shatter stereotypes and expand cultural preservation.

Silver Bullet Productions gratefully thanks the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (The Academy) for choosing SBP as one of their 51 recipients for the 2018 FilmCraft and FilmWatch grants. This highly competitive grant award will support our film education programs in tribal communities.

Defending the Fire free screening, March 22

Silver Bullet Productions acknowledges and thanks LANL Foundation for their generous grant allowing the free public screening of our latest documentary, “Defending the Fire”, at the Reel Theatre in Los Alamos on Thursday evening March 22, 2018.

See Silver Bullet Productions in action in this video made by San Manuel Band of Mission Indians when they recognized SBP with the Yawa’ Award in Special Projects for encouraging educational achievement through a hands-on approach to filmmaking projects.

The entire process from Silver Bullet from start to finish was truly a joy. The professionalism, the courtesy, the minor and major details made me appreciate the documentary that much more. It has brought people together that normally would not have fellowship with one another.

This positive experience was life inspiring for several of my students. Not only were they given the opportunity to reflect on what our town really is, they were encouraged to think about their role in the community.

Thank you for your interest in cultural education. By supporting Silver Bullet Productions,
you become part of the solution for educational challenges.
