Thilo Hoffmann is an artist and independent film maker who has produced a series called '30 Seconds' which in his words is "30 seconds of film, about a person, a space, an object, a tune, about a story, an interest, an experience, a thought, maybe about an obsession, a desire, a secret, or simply about yourself or the thing that is only known to you. Direct your own 30 seconds of film.”

He has expanded on the concept with The Museum Of Modern Art (MoMA). Hoffmann worked with MoMA members and staff to create short (and quirky) films based on their ideas and experiences in and around the Museum. There are seven in this particular series and are an insight to different worlds contained within the museum, and the people that frequent it.

@Meadow: I actually like the Suzanne Siano clip.
Art conservation and restoration is a complex and varied process that many people forget about. Something I'd like to learn more about,hence i found it interesting :)
