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

September 22, 2010 - By 

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!
