- Glas - Oscar winning short film from 1958 about glass blowers in the Netherlands juxtaposed with a modern factory manufacturing glass bottles. No dialog, just strangely evocative glass blowing and manipulation. Work dat glass.
- Water droplets create amazing human-like animations in this Gatorade ad - The things we do to advertise sugar water. Pretty cool though.

- Editing: Creating the "OH F**K" Moment - Cuts have meaning, and filmmakers know it. At least, good ones do.
- Spritz - I'm always fascinated by the concept of speed reading. Anything that will let me shovel more words into my brain faster is worth looking into. Not sure if this one would really catch on, but brief experiments seem to work well.
