Zune Arts

If you haven't already done so, do yourself a favor and check out the Zune Arts site. I own and love my iPod, and Apple has historically done a much better job on the marketing end. That ain't the case here. Zune Arts brings together artists of various media to create short films. Previous films include the animation studio of PandaPanther set the score of The Black Angels' "Masks," and What Made Milwaukee Famous' "Hopelist" against the vision of the Chicago collection Vitamin. The latest pairing features Chromeo's "Fancy Footwork," puppet maker Adam Parker Smith, and the design studio of Three Legged Legs. The site has also launched a behind-the-scenes podcast series showing the creativity and collaboration required to bring the films to life.
