Here is a short movie two of my students made for an English class. They filmed Edna St. Vincent Millay's sonnet "What Lips My Lips Have Kissed" with a very interesting antiphonal rationale, using two actors to represent the same person. The first young lady is always filmed in color; she represents the "summer" of the happy past full of love. The second, always shown in black-and-white, represents the heart-broken present. I thought that was a simple but excellent idea.
