Ro Rao for Zune Arts


Curious Pictures’ Ro Rao adds this cute narrative short to the hugely entertaining Zune Arts collection made possible by Microsoft and those cunning curators at agency 72andSunny.

Ro’s contribution doesn’t have quite the polish as some of the other Zune Arts films, but the story is cute and some of the dog’s expressions (if they can be called that) will break your heart.

laika – you go girl! i love it. too bad all of these great works of art aren’t helping zune sales any.


this spot is a lie.

laika died 5 to 7 hours after launch due to overheating and stress.


cjcenizal that is FUNNY as hell!!! Thanks for the history. :)

PS: About the Vit guys :Motionographer is a inspiration hub. Although Vietnam VFX offers the same inspiration its parody is a digression to the entire essence of Motionographer.It is never to late to change a layout Vietnam VFX!!


Hahaha… I had no idea Laika died. That’s hilarious (in a sad way).

And thanks for the support, bicycleman!


This is an awesome video! I sure hope those other dogs appreciate what Laika sacrificed for them. All that meat and toys!
