The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 260
Chapter 259 .Shoes controversy
Wu Yi asked Xu Rui what the name “The Garden of Words” really means. Xu Rui smiled and explained.
“This title contains the main elements of the story. First of all, the hero and heroine meet, and the place of acquaintance is the courtyard on the lakeside, and the underlying meaning expressed through actions and expressions between the two is also the story. The core, and at the same time, the new green leaves near the shooting location also play a side role in the story.”
At the script meeting, Wu Yi, Xu Rui, and Cheng Kewei, who were in charge of the preliminary production, were exchanging some opinions on the work. Everyone expressed their opinions and formed a feeling similar to brainstorming.
“But the shoe designer, uh uh.”
Cheng Kewei touched his chin and said meaningfully.
“The interaction between the feet of the male protagonist and the female protagonist seems to be well portrayed. This ordinary rookie original painter can’t do it.”
Wu Yi thought about it for a while, but also quite understand it.
“The theme of this animation is very novel. The male protagonist and the female protagonist who are much older than him, the foot descriptions that are frequently required due to the shoe design, the subtle control of this sense of distance between teachers and students, although on the surface it is the same. It’s a serious subject, but there is always an indescribable [BEEP——] aura.”
At a glance, he could see Xu Rui’s intention for choosing this subject, and he was also impressed by Xu Rui’s intentions in addition to animation production technology.
At that time, when the “Classical Literature Club Series” was broadcast, Wu Yi not only followed every episode, but also bought a full set of CDs, and let all members of his production team watch it. The update of the “Society Series” seminar.
It’s not that the subject matter and content of this animation poke the habit of martial arts, but because this animation is simply a textbook of modern animation performance techniques. Every time you watch, martial arts can have a new experience.
Different from the supernatural animation which emphasizes the performance of fighting and painting in big scenes, daily animations have more control over the details of the performance. Many original artists and performances under Wu Yi are influenced by him. The paintings are extremely gorgeous and the performances are open. He also used exaggerated expressions to enhance the animation effect even when making some daily plots.
In Xu Rui’s words, the painting of the combat system is addition.
You can add all kinds of special effects, all kinds of lines, and the number of shots explode. As long as the picture is harmonious, the more elements the better.
But the performance in the “Classical Society Series” is subtraction.
The overall picture of this work is realistic. All the movements and expressions are just clicked, there is no exaggeration, and there is no clear direction. The whole story is implied, and the performance of the picture is restrained to the limit. Think carefully about everything.
This kind of animation is obviously different from the fantasy animation directed by Wu Yi himself.
For fantasy animations, the audience may just look at the screen, “Wow, that’s amazing, this screen is so strong, the fighting performance is so good, so amazing” and the like, the pure visual impact is very eye-catching.
“Classical Literature Club Series”, the audience may be “not bad” at first glance. The overall picture does not have that strong impact, but is just comfortable, but as you scrutinize it, you can discover many details of the picture. The more you look, the more it tastes.
This kind of viewing experience is obtained by the audience through their own discovery, and it is more resonant.
If the fighting piece is a meaty barbecue, then this type of piece is an exquisite sandwich dessert.
You have to eat barbecue and dessert.
“By the way, when it comes to the location, it should be there, right?”
Wu Yi looked at the planning book in his hand. It was mentioned that the place where the hero and heroine met was a pavilion in a lakeside park in the center of the city. As a martial arts who spent many years in Ningjiang, he naturally thought of one local.
“Yes, it is Beihu.”
Beihu Lake is located in the center of Ningjiang River. It is the largest royal garden lake in China. It covers an area of 5 million square meters. There are several islands in the lake. The islands are planted with large areas of green plants. The flowers and birds are luxuriant, and the falling leaves are colorful. It is a good place for people in Ningjiang to go outing.
Hearing Wu Yi’s words, Yi Qianqian recalled that she and Xu Rui had indeed been there several times before. There are many places to describe. More importantly, Xu Rui set the stage of the story in the rainy season. At that time In the Ningjiang River, there are often light rains, and occasionally heavy downpours. The entire Beihu Lake is shrouded in misty rain, with a special charm.
I still remember that one time, two people forgot to bring umbrellas, looking for a place to shelter from the rain on the island in the north lake, and stumbled upon a small pavilion. Usually there are no tourists passing by. It is very quiet. Now I want to come, maybe there is a prototype.
Yi Qianqian closed his eyes, and the small pavilion appeared in front of him. Between a patch of fresh green trees and the long and long drizzle, she was completely independent.
A student was bowing his head to draw something on his notebook. An elderly woman was sitting on the side with a beer in her hand and chocolates on the side. Only the sound of rain echoed between the whole world and the two sat quietly. At the same time, each doing their own things, but they are inextricably linked, in silence, a thousand words are silently communicating.
This is the beauty of subtlety.
Wu Yi seems to have seen such a scene, he can even feel the tranquil and far-reaching artistic conception, which is rare in animation.
Of course, Wu Yi also thought of the male protagonist’s obsession with the female protagonist as a shoe designer. Obviously, this is a point that an animation needs to focus on.
So he asked.
“By the way, what kind of shoes and socks should the heroine wear in this work?”
“Is this question important?”
Asked Deng Shixin, the person in charge of the animation group on the side.
“It’s very important. After all, the male protagonist is a shoe designer. I think there should be a lot of pictures stuck on the female lead’s feet. Since it is a teacher, it should be black stockings and high heels?”
Cheng Ke thought for the support of his cheeks.
“No, no, no, black stockings and high heels teachers only exist in certain movies, aren’t jeans and sneakers normal?”
Deng Shixin retorted immediately.
“I think the combination of invisible socks and women’s high heels seems better. Isn’t the looming toes fascinating?”
Wu Yi suddenly became interested and discussed with enthusiasm.
“Wait, since the protagonist didn’t recognize the other person as the teacher at first, does that mean that the protagonist doesn’t look very old, so why not try white stockings and dress?”
“That feels too exaggerated. Even a teacher wouldn’t wear this kind of clothes to class, right?”
“Since it is the story of the rainy season, why didn’t you think of sandals? Compared to the cover-up, I think sandals that fully show the feet are more in line with the theme of the work!”
“Sandals are completely evil. This kind of props that turns shoes into a foil and relies on the charm of bare feet itself is not pure enough at all.”
Seeing everyone gradually drifting away from the subject and turning to discussions about their habit, Xu Rui shrugged helplessly.
By her side, Yi Qianqian glanced at Xu Rui meaningfully, walked in quietly, and whispered in Xu Rui’s ear.
“So, what do you like?”
