Thank you videos

One of my kickstarter rewards for people who pitched in $25 or more was a personalized thank you video from me. Of course this was an opportunity to play with the format and make something fun.

Since I have people’s addresses from mailing their postcards earlier I was able to “visit” all my backers at their homes on Street View. But I didn’t want to just make a static video so I figured out how to layer an html5 video on top of an embedded street view location.

This sample is live here. (Unfortunately it only works in Chrome and Safari and not Firefox)

I don’t know why. But as a fall back i can send people a regular screen captured video of it if it doesn’t work for them i suppose… I haven’t sent them out yet so I’ll see how people respond…
