In the second installment of Scenes You've Seen, past Oscar winning films are recreated using stock footage. You wouldn't believe how much crazy stuff there is in stock footage; how long will it be before we get full-length stock-footage-only films? (I mean...good ones?)

Actually, maybe Inadequate Fishing Vessel (Best Film Editing, 1976) is a contender too.

And here's the original Scenes You've Seen, from late 2014:
