The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 259
Chapter 258 .2 theatrical version
Of course, Xu Rui and Yi Qianqian’s trip to Jingping is not just a wedding trip. They went to Jingping’s palace to inspect, and according to Xu Rui’s idea, they strolled around the famous scenic spots in this historic city.
After the October holiday ended, Xu Rui met Wu Yi after returning to Ningjiang.
He has completed the entry formalities at this time, and the desk is on the second floor, near Xu Rui.
As for the old subordinates of Wu Yi, they are also taking up positions one after another.
Before she thought about what she should do, Wu Yi received Xu Rui’s invitation to make it.
Wu Yi stroked his chin, thinking about the plan Xu Rui had just told him.
Although Xu Rui said that Wuyi will become the second production group of Phantom Animation, with the power to produce animation independently, but on the one hand, Wuyi is understaffed, and many old employees who are willing to resign with him and come to Phantom Animation. , But it’s a bit too ideal to want to take the entire group to quit. Animation production can’t be completed by a dozen people. The new team of Wuyi is in a running-in period, and there is no way to do animation production for a while.
On the other hand, Xu Rui’s theater animation film really needs manpower. Unlike the theater version of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”, this is a completely new original animation that needs to be created from the character, the preliminary preparations, and the martial arts. Joining, there is no doubt that the quality of the work can be improved.
Xu Rui’s last consideration is that the cooperation of two well-known directors can produce a strong publicity effect and attract more people to watch the movie.
For these reasons, he invited Wu Yi to participate in this one-year animation film production plan, allowing him to build his own team while participating in the production.
Wu Yi has not directed any animation films. He was only responsible for the production of some animation films as the original artist and during the performance. Xu Rui invited him to become an assistant director to coordinate certain performance and storyboard design work.
In China, animated films are not a popular genre film. There are two main reasons. One is that most of the animated films shown in movie theaters are sequels of TV animations, which are naturally exclusive and are almost all fan-oriented films. If you haven’t seen the previous work, it’s easy to get confused.
The second is the issue of the scale of the screening, which has a certain relationship with theater chains, film and television companies, and distributors. In short, except for companies such as Suo Ren Hu Yu that have their own film and television distributors, such as Rainbow Media and Mushroom Film. The animation films of established animation companies can only be arranged in small-scale theaters, and the final box office is naturally not high, forming a cycle.
The movie “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” is a work that perfectly meets these two points. As a sequel to the TV version, it is only shown in some big cities above the third tier. Even if word of mouth explodes, the final box office is better than those popcorn blockbusters. Also slightly miserable.
And Xu Rui’s new plan is to challenge this situation.
Wu Yi’s hand is the plan given by Xu Rui. It contains two works. One of them is about fifty minutes long. It does not go to theaters. It is only broadcast on the Chuyin Video Network. This work, except for Xu Rui In addition to providing the initial script of the story, Wu Yi will mainly be responsible for it.
The second work is a film officially screened in theaters, with a duration of 100 minutes. Xu Rui is responsible for this one, with Wu Yi as the supervisor.
The production of the two works is going on at the same time. The short story that Wu Yi is responsible for is expected to be broadcast in June next year, and Xu Rui’s work will be released in late August of the following year. The two works will be released one year apart. Considering the duration and production period, if Coupled with the second season of “Music Girl”, in the first half of next year, phantom animation is equivalent to three openings.
Wu Yi opened the script of the work he was responsible for. This is a rather realistic story.
The protagonist is a student. During the rainy season, he will habitually skip classes and come to the lake in the middle of the city. The hero’s dream is to become a shoe designer. When skipping classes, he will be by the lake. Design with your own sketchbook.
But one day, when he came to the pavilion that was originally his own, he found an elderly woman sitting there, eating chocolate and drinking beer, looking like she was doing nothing.
Over time, the two people they met occasionally began to communicate, and the actor gradually developed a pubertal fascination with this woman who was much older than him, and even wanted to help each other make a pair of shoes to show his own mind.
But later, the actor discovered that this woman turned out to be a teacher at his school. He felt that he was deceived. The teacher also tactfully rejected the actor’s wishes. In the end, the actor left alone.
But at this time, the heroine suddenly wanted to understand her mood, she ran after her, and the two finally hugged each other.
At the end of the story, the heroine went to a faraway place to continue teaching due to work reasons, while the male protagonist continued to move toward her dream. Both of them worked hard to be better when they met next time. The story ends here. Stop.
After reading this script, Wu Yi has almost no line descriptions, no detailed plots, only story ideas, and the first thing he thought of was “Voice of the Stars”, this Xu Rui’s famous work.
Although this story does not have any sci-fi elements, the core of the story is similar to “Voice of the Stars”, all with a certain “distance” emotion.
In “Voice of the Stars”, two people who have the same mind are separated by a few light years, and even the airwaves of the confession are blown away by the universe.
In this work, although the two people have the same mind, the gap between identity and age makes them far away. At the end of the story, the two are not together, but just give an open ending.
Wu Yi is a little curious, why Xu Rui likes this subject so much, but in terms of the overall story, Wu Yi thinks it is pretty good.
Of course, what martial arts is best at is imaginative different world themes Whether it is “Steel Mage” or “City of Giants”, it is a story that is very different from modern life. He is responsible for “Innocent Teacher” “Pretty Student” also has an exaggerated imaginative style. This kind of deeper, more delicate, and introverted modern story, martial arts has not tried too much.
But because of this, Wu Yi feels it is a challenge. If a director can only shoot in other worlds, then he is not a qualified and excellent director. Wu Yi itself is not very rich in emotional life, and his wife came from college. Classmate, therefore, for this kind of exquisite emotional story, he is also eager to try it without much confidence.
It’s like an accomplished master suddenly came to a brand new field, and even reminded Wu Yi of the throbbing mood when he was in charge of the first work.
Therefore, after receiving Xu Rui’s invitation, Wu Yi thought twice and finally decided to take over the directorship of this work.
On October 12th, Magic Animation’s official Weibo made an announcement, in addition to announcing that Wu Yi has officially joined Magic Animation, he also announced his first work in Magic Animation. The director and main performance of this work is Wu Yi, the script And the performance inspection is Xu Rui, which is an animated film of theatrical version that will be shown on the Hatsune Video Network.
The name of the work is “The Garden of Words”.
