The Wilderness Downtown is an interactive film directed by Chris Milk. It’s unique to each user thanks to the über nerds at Google who together with Milk, set out on a quest to prove the awesomeness of html 5. The experience features Arcade Fire’s “We Used To Wait” and at some moments, it’s so touching I thought my little black heart would melt. Especially when the video asked me to write or draw a postcard to my younger self.
I had a little too much fun drawing. After the film ends, you can share your film and postcards with other users!
I’m not going to get techie with it. Listen, you ready? Go the the site, play and enjoy. Then go find out how the magic happens from the experts at WSJ Blogs.
Remember The Arcade Fire Presents “Neon Bible”? I was wondering how they were going to step it up after that one.
