Interesting use of html5 for this interactive video by Chris Milk for Arcade Fire. The whole concept is very interesting; playing with Google street view, Google maps, including interactivity and normal video footage. The only downside is that it seems to only work on Google Chrome which apparently is the only browser to support all html5 features required in this video. If not completely breathtaking because of a lack of stunning graphics, it’s at least very interesting to see where all this html5 is heading towards and to imagine what will be the internet in a few years. Have a go yourself by visiting The Wilderness Downtown.
