Knowing how to work with the modifiers is a valuable asset when you want to build abstract/mograph clips. There are lot of ways you can also mix them for some nice results. We're using a couple of primitives and lots of modifiers to create a cool clip! Enjoy.
As always, you can check the result clip below. I've rendered the bright one cause the dark version needed some additional tweaking not covered by the videotutorial above. It looks sweet and renders pretty fast too!
