I know this has nothing to do with motion graphics, but it's late in the semester and I'm kind of running out of ideas.  So instead, I'm going to show you a video made by BriTANicK (Brian and Nick).  They both went to NYU and made use of their college degrees by making videos for youtube.  It is pretty astonishing how many people break into the industry through webisodes and other online videos.  Although it definitely worked out for them, Brian recently starred alongside Charlize Theron in Young Adult and Nick will be appearing in a show on MTV and in Louie.  The video below is a parody of stereotypical movie trailers, but if you have 15 minutes to spare, you could also check out their thesis film Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses (it's kind of ridiculous, but stick with it).  I recommend watching some of their other videos, they're short, but really funny.

For some people, media sharing websites like YouTube become their job.  If they have enough views, they can get money from advertising on their channel, product placement, promoting their band or comedy, and appearing on panels at conventions.  I guess all we have left to do is become amazing at motion graphics, get YouTube famous, and pay off all our student loans.
