There is a frontal reference in Michael Blanco to one of the shots of Unbreakable (the television set shot upside down is a subjective shot of a guy watching the TV upside down - same process in both films (Unbreakable and Michael Blanco)
When Mr. Walker is teling Lucius that he is fearless after the elders read the note Ivy is sitting in a chair behind him. Everyone around her is wearing dark colors while she is wearing a bright blue dress. Shyamalan used this technique so the audience would notice Ivy. He also used this in Unbreakable when David was first using his power. Everyone that was passing by him was wearing dark colors and everyone that brushed him was wearing bright colors.
