Help with LED matrix (daft punk) table

Ok, so im still relatively new to electronics so please bare with me.  But say i were to make this table with an 8x8 matrix, as far as the wiring is concerned, is it really as simple as making the matrix and programming it with an arduino? 

Yes solder your matrix together with the right resistors. Connect it to the arduino and run the sketch and your good to go. Just follow one of the many Matrix istructables here and your good to go.
