1. a cut or very quick dissolve on a full frame of black or white (like the back of a character's black coat), or a little more difficult-- a solid color (like two blue skies). in my opinion, the illusion works best with black.
2. a good old-fashioned whip pan. you can get away with a lot with these.
3. a cut or dissolve on a static image.
4. flashes/lightning (a good example is in the retooled starwars when the cam flies into the deathstar trench-- the CGI wider first half and the second half of the old miniature barely look the same, but the movement and flash make it pretty seamless).
5. have someone/something pass by in the immediate forground and overtake the screen for one frame. just make sure to match the camera movement and the speed of the two passersby.
generally, i think #1 and #5 work the most invisibly. and the seam will be best hidden if it occurs during distinctive movement, whether it be the camera or subject.
hope this helps,

The films basic idea is that it's all taking place in an appartement. One take. There are several places where he cuts the film. See it and you'll get some good ideas. Cheap, smart and basically great filmmaking.
