The Wilderness Downtown by Google and Arcade Fire

The Wilderness Downtown is an experimental, interactive film made by Chris Milk, the Google Chrome team, and the Arcade Fire. The video that's playing is using HTML5 video. The interaction between the windows is being queued using HTML5 audio and the flocks of birds and other graphics elements are using a 3-D engine and the Canvas element. In addition to that, as it plays, you can see it pull in and interact with Google Maps using an address that you have put in, so the end result becomes somewhat personal. You can find this at thewildernessdowntown.com.

If you want to read more about how they made it, check out the Chrome Experiments page at chromeexperiments.com/arcadefire.
