TYPO3 - Still here

One internet year is equivalent to 7 human years.

Since 1997, open source project TYPO3 has held its own in one of the toughest markets around: the internet. And that certainly doesn’t go without saying. It’s a fantastic achievement that deserves to be celebrated.

The task: Spice up a keynote speech.

Every good party needs an appropriate occasion. In this case, it was the T3CON15, the TYPO3 conference in Amsterdam. The film kicked off the keynote speech by Mathias Schreiber and Benni Mack, to give the open source project a fresh boost. But of course, there’s one place you’ve got to be able to find a film about TYPO3: on the internet.

The solution: Evolution on speed.

Who still remembers MySpace? Netscape? ICQ? The internet is a rough neighbourhood, with today’s rising star quickly becoming tomorrow’s has-been. Those who survive are the real heroes. Even more so, when the success isn’t down to a profit-orientated enterprise, but rather a dedicated open-source community.

We packaged this story inside the biggest success story ever: human evolution. Humanity has survived in the face of adversity, danger and terrible trials. We’re still here, not in spite, but rather because of the need to continually adapt. Just like TYPO3.

Job done: Let’s party!

The audience at the T3CON15 loved the film which means we’re now on course to conquer the World Wide Web!
