How AT&T is Helping Pablo and Other Teen Filmmakers Realize Their Dreams

Seventeen-year-old Pablo Zuniga had an idea for a TV show. It wasn’t about fast cars, space or crime scene investigators. Pablo wanted to tell the world that it’s okay for boys to cry and suicide is not something to be glorified. 


The pilot is currently being shown to network executives and in school assemblies around the country. It could take a year or more to find out if the show will air.


But for now, Pablo is considering applying to a 4-year college with a film school. And maybe someday he will turn his pilot idea into a show that could help those suffering from depression.


“There’s always someone who can help,” said Pablo. “And a film could impact someone. I want it to speak to the world.”


At AT&T, we’re transforming our current and future workforce to be leaders in media. Through AT&T Aspire, we’re empowering the next generation of storytellers and creators with organizations like Fresh Films by showing them skills, careers and opportunities in the media industry.


Stories like Pablo’s inspire us all at AT&T. He’s one of the reasons we’re committed to helping aspiring filmmakers find and share their voices.
