The Songbird: The Wilderness Downtown

Arcade Fire, along with Google and the artist Chris Milk, launched an interactive film set to their track “We Used To Wait”.  After entering a childhood address, the project uses Google Maps and Google Street View to incorporate shots of the viewer’s hometown into the video.  It creates a uniquely personal experience with the use of choreographed windows, custom rendered maps, real-time compositing, and much more.  To make your own ‘Wilderness Downtown’, click here.
