* During the filming of ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', Taika Waititi encouraged Jeff Goldblum to improvise and have fun with the latter's role as the Grandmaster. As a result, this is one of the Goldblumiest characters in recent history.

* This was usually what happened when creative teams were working with the [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel]] Method, which was born from Creator/StanLee being overworked with deadlines due to having writing duties on multiple titles. Artists are given descriptions of what the writers want the story to be, then given free rein to go nuts with the exact details of what happens. An infamous example was the Galactus Trilogy, which was born from Creator/JackKirby supposedly being given the instruction of "The ComicBook/FantasticFour meet God."

* Stunt coordinator for the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels Nick Gillard says that the screenplays will often say "and an epic swordfight ensues" for the lightsaber battles which he choreographs.

George Lucas himself joked about the same thing: one documentary shows him triumphantly coming out of his office with the finished script for ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', but admitting "There's a lot of cheating. There's a lot of 'They fight'."

* A large amount of the gags and humorous lines unique to the anime version of LightNovel/KonoSubarashiiSekaiNiShukufukuO were left up to the voice actors to adlib, after Creator/StudioDEEN realized how funny the VA cast (Creator/JunFukushima in particular) got during recording sessions. The "Yes, I'm Kazuma" gag in particular was born from this.

** There were parts of the ''Aladdin'' script that said "ROBIN SAYS SOMETHING LIKE THIS:". There are rumors that hidden somewhere in Disney Studios are hours and hours (much more than the length of the finished movie) of Williams riffing as Genie. Hopefully, some of that will see the light of day someday.

Named for an allegedly frequent note in Creator/MarxBrothers scripts, this trope refers to space deliberately left in otherwise scripted media to allow for the wacky whims of an actor best known for his {{improv}}isations. The crew knows that a particular actor will be funnier if left to his own devices than anything the scriptwriter could possibly come up with. As such, this is possibly the highest compliment that can ever be paid to a comedian, when the writers know that no matter what he or she does, it will have everyone who sees/hears it in stitches.

* Disney's early full-length movies started out as vague ideas. "Story Men" were then responsible for thinking up sequences that would fit into the narrative and direct storyboard artists to map out their ideas, throwing in the occasional twist, in advance of pitch meetings where Creator/WaltDisney himself would make his own changes (often throwing out weeks' of work in an instant) or suggest putting in a song. It was only at this point that dialogue would start being mapped out, with changes occurring until the very last minute.
