Meet the Team

Why make this film?

As filmmakers, it’s our job to tell stories that need telling, give voices to the voiceless, and make our world a better place. It’s not every day that filmmakers get to tell a story that can change the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world. With A Billion Lives, we have that chance and we’re not going to waste it.

We’re putting everything we have into making this the defining film for an entire generation and helping end the grip smoking has on over a billion people.

The Production Team

Director:  Aaron Biebert
Producers:  Shem Biebert, Jimi Jake Shaw, Jennifer Biebert
Associate Producers:  Colin Wilcox, Caleb M. Pearson

Although we have a long history of producing short films for community-focused organizations like City Year (Americorps), Pathways to College, Atonement, and more, this community-focused film is a for-profit venture being produced by Attention Era Media, a group based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We have received no funding from any outside companies or organizations for this film. If you’re interested in partnering on bringing this film to the world, we’d be interested in speaking. Please contact us today.
