SNACKBOX PRODUCTIONS ADDS NEW VOICES FOR IRISH COPYRIGHT PROTECTION CAMPAIGN

In November 2013 Into Film UK and the Industry Trust for IP Awareness collaborated with a message aimed to inspire millions of young people to respect intellectual property.  Thanks to the success of this campaign The Industry Trust Ireland enlisted the services of SnackBox Productions to lend their expertise to give this message a new Irish voice Lovemovies.ie public awareness campaigns and educational workshops.

The piece tells the story of two young boys – one watching illegal film content online and another questioning why his friend thinks that this film should not be paid for… even €7 could pay for Vin Diesels sock…

‘ I am very grateful to Into Film and My Pockets for giving permission to localise this Industry Trust for Irish audiences , it is an very powerful message for young people told with humour and truth.
