Zune Arts is an impressive collection of animated music videos created over the last year to promote Microsoft’s Zune line of portable entertainment devices.
Zune Arts is a place where emerging artists collaborate on inspiring works of art; where sharing, connection, discovery and friendship is celebrated; a place that’s continuously growing, ever evolving and always open to new voices, influences and ideas.
The latest in the series is “The Masks”, a psychedelic battle scene animated by PandaPanther, with creative direction from 72andSunny, featuring the song “Young Dead Men” by The Black Angels.
Renowned New York animation geniuses Jonathan Gorin and Naomi Nishimura (a.k.a. PandaPanther) have created a Braveheart-meets-Care Bears battlefield drama in the new Zune Arts film, “Masks”. A war between angry robots and paunchy blue critters set to the dark, brooding sounds of Austin’s The Black Angels, the film explores how peace can be better achieved by trading perspectives, not blows.
