Student Film Workshops

SBP student film workshops generally include writing, theme development, interviewing, documentary treatment, camera use, filming techniques and editing. The filming portion is lead by professional actors and directors with total involvement of students, teachers, members of the community and businesses in the community. At the end of the sessions, the school receives their professionally edited short documentary on the topic they selected. They also get to keep all the filming equipment for future use by school students and faculty.

The Silver Bullet Productions training class was a great experience. I had so much fun learning about all of the different camera angles, I never knew that I personally could take a picture at that level. When we were doing the interviews, I think that was the best part, it was so exciting and felt so great.

Thank you all again for the opportunity to be a part of the process of learning and leadership. It has greatly helped me get through high school, aided me in peer education, and has helped me find other ways to get youth involved in prevention and intervention strategies. You and your crew are the best! I hope you all know you are appreciated not only by me but all of the rural and tribal communities you have helped out, the work you are all doing is phenomenal and a great way for Natives to get the word out on different topics. Keep up the amazing work.
