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.

But there's also a layer of subtle brain-trickery that zips right past your conscious mind unnoticed and hacks straight into your cerebral cortex. Or your medulla oblongata, or something.

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