Interactive Video for ‘Arcade Fire – We Used To Wait’
Words by Scenewave Australia - Published on September 1, 2010
The amazing new video for Arcade Fire’s latest single ‘We Used To Wait’ doesn’t exactly follow conventional video clips techniques.
This one uses google maps and satellite images to personalise the HTML5 video’s imagery. You simply type in the address of the town you grew up in and the video will be customised to include satellite images and google street views of your childhood home, adding a little bit of nostalgia to the clip. Multiple pop up windows and even a chance to write a message to be included makes it less of a video and more of an interaction between you and your childhood.
Visit The Wilderness Downtown to play it and play around with it.
