Panorama of a scene from Funny Face displayed via HTML5 and canvas

Just another experiment with panoramas. It occurred to me that you could make an interactive panorama of a scene from a film, just by stitching individual frames from the film together into a wide image, much as you would construct a normal panorama by taking a number of separate shots at different angles.

To test the idea, I chose Funny Face, as it features several long panning shots across the Paris skyline. There were challenges, especially in matching the colour balance and exposure of the various frames as the camera moved across the scene, but I think the results are pretty good.
