Film director-producer Robert Silver has successfully released 12 films since 1999. With 11 of them being short films (with a mix of documentaries, comedies, and dramas). He successfully produced his first full-length feature documentary, “COVID19: The Fallout of a Modern Pandemic”, in 2022. His films have been accepted and won numerous international film festival awards.



After having produced 12 films with little to no budget Robert Silver is very well versed in being to produce high-quality results despite the financial restrictions that come across. Having had to cost in the past, the one thing we refuse to cost is the quality of the final product. 


Up to this point, Robert Silver has directed, produced, and was the cinematographer for all of his projects. Gaining the hands soon experience of being able to handle the challenges of numerous film crew roles.


Teamwork makes the dream work. Until this point, everyone involved in his films has voluntarily contributed their time to further their experience in filmmaking.  With that said, this will be the first film project Robert Silver will be paying for his film crew and talent (actors).  


Since quality is hard to find we play to pay for it. It’s funny how great a financial reward to a great incentive is when you are asking those to a part of a film project, lol. 


If you can’t help financially it doesn’t mean your support doesn’t matter. There is more than one way to show your love for our vision.
