My First Movie Project

Proyecto ACCESO has developed a middle school curriculum module about IPR for Latin America, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY FOR KIDS - MY FIRST MOVIE.

Working with U.S. and Chilean prosecutors, artists from around the Western Hemisphere, animators, and education specialists, we have tested this curriculum in Mexico and Chile in private and public education environments.

The program educates young people about the importance of IPR and the dangers associated with pirated goods, and the importance of creating a new generation of innovators. Our curriculum module is designed to reduce the lure of pirated goods and promote the legitimate consumption of media, software, books, and music.

The program starts with a one-hour curriculum module about IPR to school children. This presentation includes multimedia support, a classroom workbook for each student, and a DVD for each teacher for further use and follow up exercises after the curriculum module. This module is done by specialized Police anti piracy unit. They bring fake goods to show the danger children can be expose to.

Working with a generous grant from the U.S. Embassy in Santiago de Chile, ACCESO undertook its IP for Kids workshop in Santiago.
Francisco Nieto of the Chile office of the International Federation of Phonographic Industries (IFPI) provided the opening remarks, welcoming many of the children who were trained through this program.
Several animations were produced and broadcasted on the web and other media. Monica Alcalde of the U.S. Embassy and her colleagues were all very happy with the results.

ACCESO's team visited the northern Chilean city of Iquique to execute its signature Intellectual Property Rights for Kids Program. This public education program for at-risk kids is part of Proyecto ACCESO's commitment to fighting Intellectual Property piracy.

Leading the team was Sebastian Vives, a long-time team member. Ricardo Amunategui, of Santiago de Chile, and Alejandro Gonzalez, originally from Cuba. Ricardo and Alejandro are both professors of animation arts at UNIACC in Santiago.
Several animations were produced and will be broadcast on the web.

The program was funded with a grant from the U.S. Embassy in Chile in collaboration with the Chile office of International Federation of Phonographic Industries (IFPI). Since 2004, ACCESO and IFPI have partnered with the U.S. Embassy on a number of public education programs about IP rights and the dangers that piracy poses to the national patrimony and public health and safety in Chile.
