I was just browsing through half the internet in search of tutorials without really finding what I am looking for.

My footage is a close up of a cell phone and I want to create a tear drop which falls onto it. I am sure such a thing has been done before and I was wondering if someone might have some hints for me how to do that.

...reshoot it, and drop a droplet of water on it? This is the best solution. By far.

Shoot a droplet of water falling onto a greenscreen, and do your best to key out all but the highlights/shadows created by the drop?

Get a 3D animator to animate the fluid simulation for you?

Video CoPilot realistic raindrop tutorial comes to mind.
