Sometimes it's great to have a little fun while doing your trade. So you look up contests, particularly video contests in our case. You call up a couple of friends. You toss around some ideas. And voila! Silliness always wins.:)
Just for those of you that wish to vote and also get a good chuckle, here are some entries (5 of them) into the Wonderful Pistachio contest from me. Voting begins December 2nd, 2009 - Please vote for one of these or all of them. That is if we make it to the top 10. We would really appreciate it. :)

Okay. Usually I don't like to talk about anyone in particular. But this guy has some really great info and experience when it comes to shooting stock. Of course his specialty is photo, not video or moving pictures. But all in all, many of his ideas, concepts and tools work just as well. After all, moving pictures are nothing more than a long series of stills. No? :)
There is one tool in particular that I really recommend checking out if you are in the stock image or footage biz... (Clicking here will open a new window) - Yuri Arcurs Productions
If you are in need of key-wording ideas - this is a kick-butt tool.
