Friendversary is the follow-up to the super-popular “Friends Day” video, a new dynamically-generated celebration of Facebook friendships that elevate users’ own content from mere assets into delightful films.

A live-action design film (with CG and 2D animation elements) that used Chapeau’s dynamic compositing process to create “live” video files, which were turned into millions of personalized videos.

When it debuted in 2016, there were more than 1 Billion “Friendversary” films made, in 35 languages. Today, more than 200,000 personalized versions of this now-iconographic video are still being rendered daily.
