* In the making-of documentary for ''[[WallaceAndGromit The Wrong Trousers]]'', Nick Park mentions how handy it is to have shots where characters are speaking from offscreen or are holding up a newspaper in front of their face or something.

* ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' and '''[[Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII III]]'' did this, when Crispin Glover didn't return for them; in 2015, his character is played by actor Jeffrey Weissman, in heavy old-age makeup and hung upside down by a ''"medical device"'', due to a ''"golfing accident"''.

* The ''Blake's 7'' episode "Orac" combines this with Fake Shemp. The actor playing Travis was out sick with a hand injury when it was time to shoot the studio scenes. So they had a stand-in, only seen from below the neck or behind a tank of murky white liquid, then had the Travis actor loop the dialogue later.

Added DiffLines:

** Also employed via sound-alike for a morphed Aurico in the ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' teamup Forever Red, and by body double and soundalike for Antonio in the ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' special Clash of the Red Rangers.
** Done literally when Saban had Toei shoot extra footage of Rita and her goons lip-syncing English lines.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' had one [[Radar/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball particularly dubious]] exchange between Gumball and Darwin in [[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS5E3TheBoredom "The Boredom"]] occur with their mouths off-screen, possibly indicating that the producers expected it to be cut and didn't want to have to reanimate the scene.

* ''Film/SchoolOfRock'' features this -- but instead of Jack Black, it's a guitar. In the [[spoiler:climax of the film, Jack]] breaks out a guitar solo; but his guitar NEVER faces the camera, and so you don't see the necessary hand movements to perform the solo.
** This is less jarring as Black does play guitar and we often see his hands during the remainder of the film.
** Earlier, ''Film/BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure'' did the same thing with Rufus's amazing guitar solo at the end of the film.
*** Rufus' guitar solo was actually played, but the hands playing the guitar solo and George Carlin are never in the shot together, as they aren't his. Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, on the other hand, did use this.

** In an eerie case of GenerationXerox, ''Film/TheCrow'' had to be finished in much the same way after the death of Bruce's son, Brandon. Fortunately, advanced special-effects techniques kept the obvious usage of this trope to a minimum.

* Every scene in the first ''Film/HarryPotter'' film which mentioned the title stone by name was filmed once with the actors saying "Philosopher's Stone" and once with them saying "Sorcerer's Stone", since the book was released as ''Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'' in Europe, but as ''Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone'' in the US. When the trio goes to confront Hagrid about the stone, they say the stone's name after his door has obscured their mouths.

* Creator/OrsonWelles's film of ''Theatre/{{Othello}}'' was famously made in bits and pieces over several years on a shoestring budget, to the extent that most (if not all) of the footage was shot without sound. Welles found a way around this by beginning most of his longer soliloquies with characters facing away from the camera, forcing angles and avoiding close-ups, and using shadows and dramatic lighting extensively to obscure the faces. Most critics agree that the movie turned out better and more cinematic than most Shakespeare films as a result of these cost-saving measures than it would have had Welles been given a bigger budget. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome It even won top prize at Cannes.]]

* ''TheCreepingTerror'' in a possibly unintentional way - the story is virtually all of the soundtrack was lost after filming, so was replaced with narration, detailing what our heroes are discussing as they mouth the words.

* The classic final line in ''{{Casablanca}}'', "Louis I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship" was thought up by the producer and dubbed in by Humphrey Bogart after filming was completed.

* Like many lazy production techniques, parodied in ''GarthMarenghisDarkplace''. The episode "The Apes of Wrath" culminates in a long, SpecialEffectsFailure-filled motorcycle chase with a malevolent ape-man. Afterward, Liz asks Rick to explain how the circumstances of the episode occurred, which is clearly dubbed in with Liz's mouth hidden behind a stack of books. Then, the camera is fixed on a potted plant in the corner while Rick delivers several paragraphs of rapid-fire {{Technobabble}} explaining what was going on and how he saved the day.
