“Silencio” The Movement
We hope that “Silencio, The Bully Project” is going to be a film that ignites a movement. There is so much need out there across the nation—to organize, to have a way of creating a voice for families that are struggling with this issue.
We envision school-hall meetings across the country, where the film is able to spark a conversation that is honest and real but it doesn’t emerge out of crisis. I think all too often when people talk about bullying, it’s because there is death or some act of violence and everyone has their backs up. I think if we are able to enter into this community with the right partners I think we can have a huge impact. The goal is to just build this massive movement that has tools and that has actionable activity that can really help community.
Please,become a part of this "Movement" and make a difference today, do your part by passing this on and let's Pay It Forward!

Launches Anti-bullying Effort
Silencio project aims to immerse young Latinos in an intense 8-week course in film productiom
By Tamir Yardenne Published on LatinoLA: December 20, 2011
Tamirfilms, an independent film company, launches initiative to combat bullying through filmmaking. Silencio, an all-volunteer effort, is an innovative and "high-tech masterpiece", says the film's producer, Tamir Yardenne.
The film is a pillar for the national program with the same name that champions anti-bullying efforts and fostering positive environments for today's children. Thus far Silencio,has organized more than 400 volunteers in eight states, with its initial launch scheduled at John Muir High School Pasadena, California on Dec 21, 2011.
The launch of Silencio will begin with its Student Leadership Forum that seeks to immerse young Latinos in an intense 8-week course in film production. The course will connect local youth with experienced professionals in the entertainment industry and provide young filmmakers with an opportunity to receive practical, hands-on experience. Interns will be a vital part of the project and assist in the film's production.
The curriculum will include marketing as it pertains to social media, pre-production, on-set production, and post-production. Students will get to produce their version of Silencio. "How Cool" says one applicant.
The Student Leadership Forum has gained local and national media coverage, and is supported by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
Fundraising is vital to our campaign. Visit our website to learn more about what you can do to support. Help us spread the word and get out the message to end bullying. We need your help.
