In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a film that started at three pages long, and another that happened when its creatives quit a different project.
Looper (2012) was originally set to be a short movie, until writer/director Rian Johnson expanded it. And its funding model proved very, very beneficial.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
