* An interview with Creator/InsomniacGames said that the original [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank2002 Ratchet and Clank game]] had no real writer on board for it. The dev team just made up the story as they went.

* There was a fanfic called [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11849009/1 Ghost of a Chance]], a WesternAnimation/TeenTitans & WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom AU fic. Written by the writers of the Assassin's creed Novelizations, the fic was originally started with an intent to practice being creative after all the restrictions they placed on themselves in writing "truly historically accurate" adaptations of the first 5 assassin's creed games. In fact, part of the reason they stopped novelizing was because they felt their extensive research into society, events and character development outside the gameplay was sapping their writer's energy. So, they started this crossover with an idea for a scene: Jazz is telling Robin to, "Tell Danny I'm alive" and they planned to just run with what happens from there. However, when they reached chapter 10, they came to a horrible realization. When they brought in TheJusticeLeague into their story, they realized they were going to have to start referencing the wider DC universe much more heavily instead of just the titans universe. This proved problematic as they were casual fans of both shows, but were [[CripplingOverspecialization utterly underpracticed when it cames to all the intricacies of the wider DC universe]]. And after coming down from the assassin's creed stories, they chickened out, and instead began trying to wrap the fic up as fast as they could. Thus several potential plot threads were rushed through or expositioned to death in order to reach an ending where they could take a deep breath and relax again.

* According to Don Oriolo, the son of the TV WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat showrunner Joe Oriolo, the Trans-Lux cartoons had absolutely grueling production schedules to go in hand with the [[NoBudget low budgets of 6,700$ per episode]]--they had to churn out a few episodes of the show every ''week'' (one animator was reported to have been doing around 150 feet--or around 2 minutes of animation--per week). The scripts for each episode were written in ''hours'', hence why there was so much inconsistency between the Professor being Felix's sworn enemy, and then hiring him as a helper now and then.

* WesternAnimation/FelineFollies, the debut film of WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat, was improvised by Creator/OttoMessmer in a very short period of time, so that producer Pat Sullivan could give Paramount Screen Magazine a new cartoon to fill in for another series that was running late. Everything in the cartoon, except for the inking, was done by Otto Messmer himself on weekends.

* ''{{Literature/Moonflowers}}'' was essentially written from the summary, and its plot runs on {{Rules Lawyer}}ing, LoopholeAbuse, and RuleOfScary. This is largely due to the antagonists being TheFairFolk, who [[BlueAndOrangeMorality aren't known for conforming to human logic]].

* Creator/CharlieChaplin never used scripts when making his movies--his films would always be made by constant trial and error at his own expense, focusing on the personality of the characters rather than the story. Even his features only used a little pre-planning for the story, but no fully written scripts. The one exception was Film/MonsieurVerdoux which had a script by Creator/OrsonWelles, Chaplin rewrote it to fit his interests, but otherwise retained Welles' structure.

* Martin O'Donnell, the composer for the ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' series, tends to not write or compose music for projects until late in development, once the story, cutscenes, and level design have been finalized. The reason for this is because he doesn't like to waste work; writing music for levels or cutscenes that will get cut out or rearranged will either mess with the flow of a piece or become pointless effort. Fast writing has worked for him in the past; the iconic ''Halo'' theme was written and recorded the same day it was sent to Bungie for E3 2000, and much of the acclaimed music for ''Halo 3'' was described by him as "starting last minute".

* ''Series/{{The 100}}'' has ''twice'' filmed scenes (not merely planned, not merely written, actually ''filmed'') where Jasper dies, and both times the writers decided against it at the last minute, either cutting his death scene before the episode went to air or using the next episode to explain how he actually survived.
