The Wilderness Downtown

WILDERNESSCREENSHOT This interactive film by Chris Milk and Google Chrome experiments is incredible.

Made for Arcade Fire’s – We Used to Wait, the film transports you to where you grew up using “choreographed windows, interactive flocking, custom rendered maps, real-time compositing, procedural drawing, 3D canvas rendering…and was built entirely with the latest open web technologies, including HTML5 video, audio, and canvas.” A really lovely integration of story, technology, and that “hey there’s my house” feeling.

    I’m with you Marian, this is great…it really engaged me. Good to see something different for a change.

    This guy is also doing interesting things in HTML5 (best viewed in the latest version of Safari or Chrome):

    HTML5 is emerging as a viable (and open) alternative to Flash.
