The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation


Story Consulting, Concept, Copywriting, Editing, Music and Sound Design

The world's largest philanthropic organization is known for it's  logistical, rational approach to every problem. But The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation had failed to generate a worldwide understanding of the human motives behind the amazing work that they do. We were asked to introduce an entirely unseen side of the organization: a clear explanation of why they do what they do.  

“The work is complicated. The reason we do it is not”

We created an original script and combined it with The Foundation's archival footage, original live action, custom sound design and score. The result was something entirely new to the storytelling vernacular of the organization.
