If I don't have a million dollars to film a great movie idea, I turn it into a novel. And vice versa. If I can make a short story into a short film, then that's just what I'll do.
The "Gone" series by Michael Grant, "Renegades" trilogy by Marissa Meyer, Marie Lu's "Legend," obviously Harry Potter, Maze Runner, and the Hunger Games
