Brown Paper Tickets is delighted to highlight Silver Bullet Productions, the most recent recipient of our Giving Program donation. Our $500 donation will go directly to purchasing two film equipment packages for New Mexico rural and tribal student workshops. After the workshops are complete, the tools will stay, so the group of young filmmakers can continue to make media on important community subjects.
In addition to making beautiful, topical films, we were also impressed with Silver Bullet Productions’ model. Truly a labor of love and mentor-ship, the entire operation is 100% volunteer run. Pamela Pierce, the CEO and President shared that the board, advisers, and workshop leaders are all dedicated to the mission of empowering youth to use film as a creative storytelling mechanism.

“SBP engages students and community members in an educational workshop or the creation of a film relevant to the geographic, cultural or historic vision of that community. The impact is educational change, historical awareness and preservation of culture,” notes Silver Bullet Productions.
