Note that there isn't anything wrong with this. Making the most of your budget is what really makes the industry appreciate you, as having a good trailer image works in your favor. It may run into trouble with artistic value, as [[Film/{{Jaws}} showing less of a faulty prop]] may prove NothingIsScarier or knowing a character is defined by their CoolMask and keeping them in it.

Note that there isn't anything wrong with this. Making the most of your budget is what really makes the industry appreciate you. Creator/MichaelBay has mentioned that there are stories of directors arriving on a set that cost 3 million dollars and deciding to eliminate three-quarters of the scenes that the set was built for.

* Although ''Series/ThePrisoner'' seemed to make extensive use of Portmeirion, the location filming had been restricted to just a few weeks early in the production, and later episodes were mostly studio-bound. The directors nonetheless gave the impression that most of the series had been shot on location by carefully rationing the existing footage.

* TheHistoryChannel must have spent a small fortune on creating the CGI collapse of the Space Needle in Seattle, because they used it over and over again in the original ''Series/LifeAfterPeople'' special.

* The producers of ''Series/{{Space 1999}}'' spent a tonne of cash on the show's modelwork and sets, and made sure that they got their money's worth; shots of the show's Eagles taking off and crashing and blowing up were used over and over again, and alien spaceship popped up in several different guises in different episodes. BrianBlessed even guest starred as two completely different characters in two episodes a season apart.

* Literally the entire reason ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' exists is so Creator/RichardWilliams can show off every trick, technique and method of hand-drawn animation he learned from the [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation golden age]] masters. To Williams, money was no object: if it could be animated, it would, whether or not it was relevant or cost-effective.

* The producers of ''Series/TheGrahamNortonShow'' originally built the Bid Red Chair for a one-off segment as a tribute to ''[[Series/TheTwoRonnies Ronnie Corbett]]'' but the prop and the associated hydraulics were so expensive that they turned it into a regular segment, which quickly became a trademark, to close each show to justify the cost.

* Notably averted in the animated film ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', in which JackieChan's character Monkey got surprisingly few lines, making many people wonder why they had to get ''Jackie Chan'' for that role when they could've essentially gone with a cheaper actor.
** Animated films do this a lot. The actors don't need to do much, just read the lines, so they don't need to be paid much. Live films are incredibly hard work compared to sitting in a warm studio with a microphone, cracking jokes with Jack Black and Angelina Jolie. Plus, JackieChan provided technical guidance with the fight scenes - he is the master of kung fu comedy.

* The first ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptunia'' was made for absolute peanuts, and despite having the modest-but-consistent success to warrant two sequels, remakes for all three, and at least two spinoffs, it wasn't until ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII'' that they got a budget that freed them from reusing [[UndergroundMonkey enemies]] and [[CutAndPasteEnvironments environments]]. And boy, does it show. AwesomeArt, VisualEffectsOfAwesome, and SceneryPorn are on constant display.

* {{ZigZagged}} in ''Series/GameOfThrones''. In [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire the books]], Tyrion loses much of his nose in battle, turning his already-misshapen face into a twisted lump of scar tissue. In the series, he receives an understated scar that Margaery Tyrell says may actually make him ''better''-looking. Partially this is to save the time and expense of putting Peter Dinklage behind an elaborate facial prosthesis, but mostly it's because, if you hire ''Peter freaking Dinklage'', the last thing you do is hide that gorgeous mug from the camera.

** You know that opening multiplane camera shot on the day Pinocchio goes to school? The one that's barely on screen for a full minute? That entire shot, which used a specially constructed horizontal multiplane camera, cost $50,000 to shoot, as much as the budget of a single Disney short cartoon!
** The panning multiplane crane shot during the "Hi Diddley Dee" number, which lasts barely 33 seconds on screen, cost almost as much money (around $35,000).
