Hi Kris,

Well, I cant think of any videos that use 'real' microscopy, but there's 
a Bjork song that was done by a CG company called GlassWorks. They 
developed software to render membranes and other biological forms. You 
can read about it here:

PS: the link you gave in your last message was broken. The one at the 
very end works...

Scott.
