Brightly - Preflight Nerves

Tweetflight is a new twist on the interactive music video.  Nerves, a Melbourne-based band created a real-time Twitter-powered film for their new single, Preflight Nerves.  As one of the band members explains:
'Basically we couldn’t afford to pay a big production company to do a film clip, so I thought it’d be wild to try and do something using web technologies – specifically, HTML5 and the Twitter API. 

The result is the first interactive real-time Twitter powered music video for our single, Preflight Nerves, that we’ve affectionately nicknamed Tweetflight.'

The music video scrapes tweets in real-time and highlights the lyrics as the song progresses.  Check out the flat film below or head on over to Tweetflight to have a play with it yourself.
