A few weeks ago, I posted about a project I worked on for Subaru Canada called "Pure Performance." Phase II of this project involved strapping four HD cameras to a Subaru WRX Rally Car driven by Canadian Rally champion Pat Richard as he drove through a stage during the Rally of the Tall Pines in Bancroft, Ontario.
We then created a series of interactive YouTube videos using this footage, allowing the viewer to change between the different views in real-time. In creating these videos, we actually maxed out the number of possible annotations that YouTube allows for each video. As far as I know, this has never been done before.
All four videos are below. However, I strongly recommend taking advantage of the interactive feature and clicking through the different views as Pat Richard and his navigator Alan Ockwell navigate the track. I'm not going to say that these videos were inspired by too much time spent playing Gran Turismo, but I'm not going to say they weren't inspired by this either.
Let me know what you think!
