Chris Milk's Mind-Blowing 3D Music Video '3 Dreams of Black' Redefines Web Browsing

Director Chris Milk, whose work I've covered here before, has released in conjunction with some Google Chrome developers his latest music video, "3 Days of Black," for the supergroup Rome (which, for this song, consists of Danger Mouse, Daniel Luppi, and Norah Jones). The first full 3D scene is literally eyebrow-raising and the video highlights a number of important web-based storytelling tools, like the 3D browsing technology WebGL. Requires Google Chrome.

You'll need to click through to the full site to experience the video itself, but here's the behind-the-scenes, from the tech microsite:

It said FF4 wasnt good enough and that i needed to install chrome, so i did, and then it said chrome wasnt good enough and that i needed to instal chrome canary, so i did, and then i waited, and waited, and 5-10 minutes of occupying my entire internet connection it was ready to go, yay.

It works for about a 30 seconds and then it goes black and the cursor changes, which i presume is just one of those free view 360 style player gimmicks you see occasionally.

So yeah, 3 days of black pretty much sums it up.
