Rosemarys Baby: editing through frame selection

"Rosemary's Baby is a 1968 American horror film written and directed by Roman Polanski, based on the bestselling 1967 novel by Ira Levin. ... Farrow plays an expecting mother who fears that her husband may have made a pact with their eccentric neighbours, believing he may have promised them the child to be used as a human sacrifice in their occultic rituals in exchange for success in his acting career."

(Zach James and Rich Raddon, Movieclips)

O Tamaiti: young boy who is expected to play guardian to his siblings

"Sima Urale's debut short film, beautifully realised in black and white, tells the story of a young Samoan boy who is expected to play guardian to his siblings. As his parents struggle in their new country, he is overwhelmed by the responsibility. When faced with his grief, the adults fail to recognise his pain. Poignant attention to details that convey a child's perspective (eg. the movement of a spacies game and shopping trolley are intercut) saw O Tamaiti win awards at film festivals around the globe, including the prestigious Silver Lion at Venice."

Make a different choice: condom, no condom?

"An interactive sexual health film aimed at encouraging young people to choose condoms has been launched by NHS Choices and NHS Bristol.

'Condom, no condom?' allows viewers to direct the storyline and shows the consequences of using or not using a condom.

The film, which is on YouTube, follows a group of young party–goers and at different stages of their night out the viewer is prompted on whether or not to choose a condom.

Each choice leads to another short film showing the consequences of the decision, including pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections and rejection by a partner."

(Department of Health, 14 October 2010 , UK)
