Why We Made OPEN

The vast number of volunteers who make WordPress come to the project with their own stories. We wanted to share and explore why people give so much to WordPress. In hearing individual stories we found common themes. Open | The Community Code explores why the WordPress community is so special, and how open-source projects benefit from community.

About the Film Team

OPEN | The Community Code is a documentary short created by Producer Andrew Rodriguez and Director Sean Korbitz. ​Executive producers Mark Maunder and Kathy Zant contributed to the production of Open.
