About Me

My Bio
I grew up in a very socially conscious family. Both my parents were teachers, my father was in the Peace Corps, co-founded Freedom from Hunger in America with Jack Healy, and was the director of the National Kidney Foundation. My parents encouraged me to be a free thinker and be active in the community, which helped me become an Eagle Scout. While in Wilmington, NC I helped develop an arts program to bring various artistic concentrations to inner city kids in the juvenile detention center as well as Pathways, a center for kids who have been expelled from public school.
Why are you supporting The 1 Second Film project?
Upon research of the 1 Second Film I wanted to be a part of something bigger then myself, if even for a second.

Michael Silver's Perfect Moment

If you had to choose a 'perfect moment' from your life to make into a one-second film, what would it be?

Receiving my College Diploma – I was on stage, in front of a lot of people and my family, about to receive my college diploma. As I was handed the envelope which held my diploma, I opened it and looked inside to find out it wasn’t there. I played it off and no one knew till after the ceremony, I was terrified, but in retrospect it was hilarious because it was a clerical error.
