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.

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

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.

However Wide the Sky: Places of Power

The history and spirituality of the Indigenous People of the American Southwest are deeply rooted in the Land. Since the beginning of time, they have been stewards and protectors of their home lands, past and present. These places intimately connect the People and their beliefs to the natural world. No place is ever abandoned, the landscape is forever living. This is their story, of the Land and who they are.

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.
