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.

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.

Warrior Kooper Curley

Kooper Curley, Dine’, part of our documentary Defending the Fire, reminds us what is worth fighting for—what Warriors through time have sought: land, water, culture, and spirit. Thank you for standing strong at Standing Rock.

Warrior Wes Studi

Vietnam War Veteran, advocate for American Indian Movement at Wounded Knee, and one who stands with Standing Rock…a true Warrior. Thank you, Wes Studi, Cherokee actor and cultural guardian, for participating in Silver Bullet Productions’ documentary on the Warrior through time.

Warrior Robert Trivino

U.S. Army SGM Robert Trivino, Cochiti Pueblo and Yaqui Tribe. Author of A Warrior’s Path, he lives the Warrior’s life, and epitomizes the character of a Warrior through time. Thank you, Robert (Evergreen Mountain), for your service as a member of the 25th Ranger Regiment and of the Special Missions Unit under the US Army Special Operations Command.

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.
