If Billy Silva had been a lot better at math and a little better at bullshitting, he probably would have been an astronaut or a spy, or some wild combination of the two by now. Instead he took the next obvious path - making movies. Billy has worked in various capacities in film production for 15 years and has directed a wide array of projects, from an award winning feature documentary (A Place in the World) to a 12 episode web series now available for streaming on Verizon’s Go90 app (The Dunk League). When not working with clients like Google, the ACLU, Courvoisier, The Museum of Arts and Design, and the Brooklyn Museum, he enjoys making creepy short films, disturbing music videos, and touching documentaries about the human condition.
Driven by a desire to discover previously unseen truths about the world, Billy thinks life is too short to not be perpetually moving and pushing limits. He also believes in practicing constant kindness. He thinks it’s helping. Can you feel it?
