Mozilla’s released Popcorn 1.0, an HTML5 media toolkit that reimagines what can be done with Web video.
Via the Mozilla Blog:
Director Kat Cizek used Popcorn and other HTML5 tools like WebGL to create One Millionth Tower, the latest installment in the NFB’s Emmy award-winning Highrise series. One Millionth Tower brings residents from a dilapidated Toronto apartment complex together with architects and designers, imagining how they can revitalize their homes and neighborhood together. The film then uses the magic of animators, web developers and Popcorn to bring these ideas to life, all through a multi-layered, three-dimensional landscape that runs directly in the web browser.
To see it in action, watch the One Millionth Tower over at Wired.
