I'm a big fan of tilt-shift photography and video. If you're not aware, tilt-shift is a focusing technique that makes real life images look like miniature scale models.
There was some great tilt-shift video on the fourth issue of Wholphin.
Another director has combined tilt-shift with time-lapse photography. It gives the added illusion that the images are stop motion animations.
