Some people get handed so many business cards, particularly at networking events, they can't remember who gave them what afterwards.
This is the reason I see little point in conventional business cards.
I think if you really want to be noticed the thing to do is get CD business cards...
As can be seen from the picture, they look pretty much like normal business cards... but the people you give them to can put them in their CD-Rom drives and access anything you've loaded onto them (e.g. sample scripts, your filmed pilot?).
They're expensive... but I think they'd be worth it as they're a clever way of getting a producer to look at your script/video (and, as is discussed multiple places on this website, the best way of getting that big break is meeting producers at conferences etc and then somehow getting them to look at your work... they hate bulky things, so perhaps this is the answer)
