Five-Minute Film Festival: Best Kickoff Videos Sometimes you just need a short, powerful video to start a meeting, an event, or a presentation -- something that really makes everyone sit up straight and start listening. It's the beginning of a brand new year, in the dark and cold of winter, and it seems like the perfect time to offer up some meeting opener videos that will leave you feeling energized and excited. And since they say you only have a few moments to get your audience's attention, almost all of these videos are under five minutes. I'm reluctant to say these are "motivational" or "inspirational," since both words conjure up visions of teamwork seminars, self-help books, and cheesy piano music slideshows, but I dare you to watch a few of these clips and not feel just a little empowered to go out and change the world.

And yet the old Mark Twain chestnut — "I never let school get in the way of my education" — speaks to the core of my own thinking regarding education.
