– The docu-adventure series is set to launch in spring 2019 to a digital audience via content partner ROAM Media –
Press Release – January 10, 2019 – Adventure-based content creator Access Collective has announced its first episodic series in adventure-based science learning with Access Chile, the three-month, real-time journey of physicist and mountaineer Eylene Pirez as she explores Chile’s most harsh and beautiful natural environments.
Through the series, viewers will join Eylene as she journeys through the Atacama Desert and Patagonia, summiting three of South America’s highest peaks, trekking through the driest desert on earth, and encountering a glacial environment currently melting at a non-glacial speed. The series is set to begin airing in spring 2019.
“Access Chile brings science out of the lab and into the public, presenting the subject as a lifestyle and showcasing real world examples of how the issues we face today can be observed, understood and addressed,” said Eylene Pirez. “Very few places on Earth are tied to as many scientific questions as the ecosystems we explore in this series, and I can’t wait for the opportunity to share my experience with our viewers.”
Cuban-American physicist, photographer, mountaineer and adventurer Eylene Pirez has dedicated the last 14 years of her career to some of the science world’s most significant research projects. Eylene’s expertise has been applied to NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, dark matter experiments, and particle accelerator technologies for state-of-the art applications in several areas of science research. Eylene resides in Los Angeles.
For most of her journey, Eylene will be traveling alongside National Geographic explorer Ben Horton. Ben is a photographer and writer, and founder of Access Collective. Ben’s explorations have been documented extensively in National Geographic, earning him various grants as an official explorer in the publication’s prestigious Society of Explorers.Ben is currently host of National Geographic’s Extreme China, a docu-series in which he teams up with Chinese adventurers to journey into extreme landscapes in search of some of the country’s most unique remote communities.
Access Collective was established as a result of Ben’s vision to create content with purpose and passion through funding from brands that can also utilize the visual assets they capture. As its first episodic series, Access Chile is the perfect example of how the company is able to produce inspiring, educational adventure content that is subsidized by the advertising assets it is simultaneously creating along the way.
“The most impactful adventures in our history have happened in the name of science, and advancing our knowledge of the world,” said Ben Horton. “Showing the science behind these adventures is a great way to inspire people to support future expeditions into the unknown, and to bring adventure back to its roots, the education and advancement of our society as a whole.”
Though production for Access Chile began in December 2018, funding for future episodes is still underway. Access Collective has created an Indiegogo campaign to introduce the project to the public and raise funds to support its continued production.

Access Chile is supported by ROAM Media, post-production and distribution partner; Arc’teryx, the exploration team’s high-performance outfitting and equipment sponsor; Wanderer Bracelets, in-kind products and promotional sponsor; bnotes, the team’s collaborative workflow efficiency tool; and Sneakz, the vegetable-based organic meal supplement providing its Meal2Go shakes to the team in-kind, throughout the duration of the journey.
Access Chile has also partnered with WILD Foundation in an effort to collectively bring awareness to the issues presented in the series as part of WILD’s Nature Needs Half initiative. Nature Needs Halfis an international movement to protect half the planet by 2050 by defending everything life needs most to flourish – clean air and water, abundant life-support services, and a stable climate.
