** He also got to be Max Goof in ''AGoofyMovie'', a role that he continued in for years.
* An episode of ''TinyToonAdventures'', "Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian", was written by Renee Carter, Sarah Creef, and Amy Crosby, who at the time were only 13. [[http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,313220,00.html As this article from the time reveals]], they had sent the script to the show on a lark and by sheer blind luck, the script was actually read and sent along to Steven Spielberg, who decided to run with it. The show called attention to it both within the script (including a gag where Buster argues with the girls about his fear of planes) and in the promotion leading up to it.

* There's also Hirofumi Ichikawa, who started off writing [[FanFic doujinshi]] and was influential in introducing Japanese fans to the original portrayals of the ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', as opposed to the [[CutAndPasteTranslation less than faithful Japanese dub]]. He has since been hired by Takara to write a fair number of toy bios, comics, and guidebooks. He even got to design toys for the ''[[Anime/TransformersEnergon Super Link]]'' and ''[[TransformersCybertron Galaxy Force]]'' lines.

* The 90% of the development staff of ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' are this. Al Rivera, Daniel Stahl, Thomas Marrone and Jeremy Randall being the most prominent (the last two being promoted fanboys of ''STO'' proper) and are notable for getting the game released after Perpetual didn't do anything with the license and didn't want to see it [[VaporWare die]]. Also ''Enterprise''-F designer Adam Ihle, who has since gone on to be put along side other ship artists like [[Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture Andrew Probert]], [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Matt Jeffries]] and [[StarTrekNovelVerse Mark Rademaker]].

* Most people working for Creator/RoosterTeeth after the first few years fall into this to some degree or another. Most notably among them are Barbara Dunkelman, who organised fan events for the group before being officially hired, and Creator/GavinFree, who, as a fan turned forum moderator turned intern turned ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' director turned Creator/AchievementHunter, might just be one of the biggest examples in the entire history of this trope.
