Motion Graphics Music Video: Gettin’ Money With a Mouse and a Wacom Pen 94 Comments



Entirely too nerdy and self referential not to post this one. Check out this video made by my buddies over at Daily Planet. It’s one motion graphic inside joke after another. With lines like “I’ve seen your reel pal, Rippin off moves from Creative Cow” and “My lens flare is so bright I need shades”, how can you go wrong? Let the inside joke, nerd-fest begin!

      John! They also missed any reference to paying $80,000 to an “art school” only to learn everything from $300 a year tutorial subscriptions… and still never get taught Cinema 4D.

      Thank god I’m done finally. Cya around!
