Erica Silverman 

Director, Red Productions 

Filmmaker: Red Productions  


The hyphen takes on new meaning with Erica Silverman. She is a writer-director-editor-mom-partner-friend-Fort Worth resident. She’s worked with the likes of Avril Lavigne and Leon Bridges, and now flexes her creative muscles at Fort Worth’s own Red Productions. Erica and her husband, local musician Robert Ellis (for whom she’s filmed a lot of music videos), moved their family from Austin to Fort Worth where they are now securely fastened into the city’s creative scene. This is a place where you can have it all, a theory that Erica is proving every day with her work and her life.
