We ain't got no budget!

CHALLENGE TIME! You are lent some expensive, professional grade video equipment for 18 hours and told that you may use it as you see fit in the time you have. Assuming little to no preparation beforehand, what do you do and/or film with it? Ideally you'd like the owner (or anyone else who sees your work) to be mildly impressed, knowing that you have no actual solo film making experience whatsoever. [more inside]

Video within a still image with Final Cut.

This is a Final Cut question: I would like to show an image with a video inside it. More specifically, so the question is clear, I would like to show (in my video) a fake website that has an embedded video. So, "the website" will be a still image, but there is video within it. I hope that's clear. Would really appreciate any help!

How to edit video into 4 way split screens

After searching and coming up empty, does anyone know the best method and software for editing video into a four way split screen? I admit I am just starting to get my feet wet to editing so if it will be tricky thanks for the pre warning. Could it be done in Premiere Pro 5? Also might have access to Final Cut Pro if it calls for it. Similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r28LLqyXBKs

Simulating the old 'music video' shooting mode?

Back in the '90s there used to be a "music video" style recording mode on Sony camcorders that created a low frame-rate, slightly blurred or dreamy look - perhaps something to do with using fewer frames per second and blending the intermediary frames. Does anyone remember this and know how to recreate that look in post-production, e.g. using final cut pro, etc.?
