* Custom's video for "Hey Mister", directed by the artist himself: The initial concept stemmed from impromptu handheld camera footage revolving around him and his girlfriend going to a beach and writing the lyrics in the sand and on her body. The label liked the results and gave him money to finish the video, so scenes of the two speeding in a yellow Ferrari and shopping, gambling, and dining in Las Vegas were added; However, all of the budget was spent on renting the car and the trip to Vegas. so it was all shot on the same handheld digital camera.

* The ''WebVideo/BenMcYellow'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37r2XHm4cIo&list=PL9fGHMcRLx6gU9ZLieogw3HJTU9C53HAA series]] is this, [[NotHyperbole literally.]] No equipment of any kind was purchased for the production, and everything was filmed around the writer/star's house with his brother and ''two'' high school friends, which forced them to make the best, or rather, the [[StylisticSuck worst]] of what they had.

** Though, to their credit, a number of productions such as ''Film/TheFigurine'' and ''Film/TheWeddingParty'' avert this with more than decent production values, receiving critical acclaim overseas. Such films are considered to be part of a new wave called the ''New Nollywood'' movment, aiming to uplift the status of Nigerian cinema from a quantity-over-quality factory of DirectToVideo fluff to a respectable industry able to keep up with those from industrialised nations.

** When it was revived as ''[[Series/{{Temptation2007}} Temptation: The New Sale Of The Century]]'', the budget shrank even further. Prizes were in the $500-$1,000 range, less than 1/4th the typical value of the prizes in the 1980s version if you adjust for inflation. The grand prize was just a mid-range car, worth less than 1/8th the 1980s jackpot (again, adjusted for inflation). Also, Instant Cash started at $500 and grew by $500 per show (with a $5,000 cap) and champs were limited to a maximum of five days. If the shoestring budget had been any tighter, the prizes would've had to be literal shoe strings.

Justified as according to host Rossi Morreale [[https://sb2tlopg.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/interview-with-rossi-morreale/ in a 2012 interview]], Creator/MyNetworkTV put [[ScrewedByTheNetwork no money at all into advertising the show.]]

* This is the most immediately noticeable difference between Chigusa Nagayo's first promotional effort, GAEA, and her second Marvelous. Compare the elaborate outfits of Wrestling/LionessAsuka's Super Star Unit or Akira Hokuto's Las Cachorras Orientales with Infernal KAORU's W-Fix, who are identified by black t shirts. Still, a promotion run by [[LivingLegend Nagayo]] doesn't have much getting names such as KAORU on its shows or attract international attention when recruiting new wrestlers. The streaming service was a shakier endeavor, [[JitterCam sometimes literally]], but none the less proved to be a source of good matches.

* Even by independent circuit standards Emi Sakura's Ice Ribbon stood out in this regard as it didn't even have a ring. Shows consisted of children straight from it's "dojo" wrestling on mats. With that said, the company has grown immensely from its humble origins to become one of the more recognizable women's feds since the fall of Zenjo and GAEA, pioneering internet streaming, bringing pro wrestling to dead venues across Asia and attracting various big name talents, just from pro wrestling and mixed martial arts but even the unexpected addition of actress Hikaru Shida, who proved to be very good in the ring they were could later afford to maintain.
