The Creative Ask


The AT&T Foundry is looking for a creative partner to help consult, ideate and produce a series of core stories that provide a foundational explanation and engaging visual depiction of the AT&T Foundry. 

This series of short documentary narratives will be equal parts creative and compelling, informative yet captivating, authentic and approachable; and above all else, an honest portrayal of real stories about real people. we will showcase how the Foundry is creating real-world solutions for real-world problems.

The underlying purpose of these videos is to reinforce the AT&T Foundry’s core vision for a diverse audience: to build and create positive connections by creating real solutions that add exponential value for customers.

And, just as the Foundry serves as a preview of the possible future ahead, so too will we engage, experiment and advance our understanding through close collaboration with the Foundry throughout this process as a whole.
