Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

We all know that there's more to movies than just aiming the camera and shouting, "Action!" There's important stuff like editing, and directing, and cinematography, and sound mixing, and so on.

Speaking of brains, our thanks to AnnNeri, for thinking up this contest.
