Our Mission

We bring to light the world of developers by moving them out of the shadows and into the hearts and minds of millions. Open source to open stories.

Kubernetes: The Documentary

Our first production was a two part series on the origins of Kubernetes. Inspired by the need for a better container orchestration system, a handful of Google engineers set out to change the world by creating one of the greatest open source projects of all time. The film gives a voice and face to the engineers who faced adversity and technical challenges in their quest to change the way we work and live today.

Inside Envoy

Envoy’s open source service proxy is considered one of the most useful and vital technologies in the world today. Envoy is our next major documentary project that carries all of the natural elements for storytelling: heroism, struggle and impact.

For us, this is a labor of love, and opportunities exist to support this unique film that brings the heroes and bold voices of the open source software community front and center and into living rooms and boardrooms everywhere.


Production Partners

Our films are made possible by many partners in technology and business. Through their financial support and sponsorship, we bring independent insights that are shaping our lives, industries and society.
