ROME - "3 Dreams of Black"

ROME is one of the best interactive projects I have seen lately, it's a really good work consisting in an interactive film, a Chrome experiment which shows the latest web technologies like WebGL in modern browsers like Google Chrome, and Windows Vista / Mac OS X 10.6.

The project was created by some friends of Google, directed by Chris Milk for the song “Black” off the album ROME, presented by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi, featuring Jack White and Norah Jones on vocals. Aaron Koblin was the creative director and Mr.doob the technical director. See more;

“3 Dreams of Black” takes you on a journey through three dream worlds constructed through a combination of rich 2D drawings and animations interwoven with interactive 3D sequences. Throughout various points in these dream worlds, you can grab your mouse and guide the protagonist’s point of view through the experience. This music experience also includes a 3D model creator that allows you to create your own relics and contribute to the shared collective dream. - Ricardo Cabello (Mr.doob)
